GD Minialbum Makers - Denim Friends

Welcome everyone!

 It's a big honour to be invited at Minialbum Makers
  and I'm very happy about this.

  I'm a handicraft enthusiast with passion since my childhood, crafting makes me happy :-)!

It is a wonderful relaxation and balm for the soul, it's the little things in life that makes you happy and I love to share this joy and want to encourage my friends and all the others to try new ideas.

I was inspired to create a mixed media album in denim look, washed out and not as neat, just like a really good pair of jeans. I have used some of my favorite collections for my minialbum, the Denim & Friends and Denim & Girls collection. I am absolutely in love with the delicate blue colours and designs of this papers.

  Basic materials:

Eileen Hull Journal die

Maja Design Paper collection: Denim and Friends, Denim and Girls

denim leftovers from an old jeans trousers

Want to see how they are made the greyboard cover?

Here I have some photos from the making.

1.    I started by applying a coat of white crackle paint

          (DecoArt) on the background

     2.        I used a acrylic paint mixture of blue shades together

            with a Chalkboard Glimmer    

            Mist  (Boogie Board- Tattered Angels)

            spray desired areas with water then drop Glimmer

            Mist onto the wet areas

3. + 4. I applied Dimensional effects, a paintable texture

             paste from DecoArt using two stencils

5.        after drying I highlighted the dimensional effects with

            a metallic finish wax

           (Metallic Lustre 'Chanpagne Ice')

6.       I thought it would be a cool idea and very suitable to

          my theme 'Denim and Friends'

          when I used  origin denim fabric and so

          I created a sailboat with two leftovers from an old 

          jeans, a wooden skewer works as sailing mast.
