Sample Project One - Prima Canvas Album

I finally finished making 
my first sample project for MWL.
This project is not for class,
only for their display at the stores.

Been given this Prima Canvas Album 
almost two months before,
 as usual, I did the project part by part,
color by color, page by page.
Even to find the right color combination
took me weeks.

Here is the cover...

to the side...

all the way to the back....

I love it.

Let's crack the album up!
Inside are canvas pages and plastic covers
so I sandwiched them in between each other 
for pleasuring texture.

Page one

Page two

Look closer to how I did the border
around the picture.
Rather than using StazOn in the past,
I use other medium that gave
more altered look.
Ask me what to use in case you're interested
in trying too, ok?

Page three

Page four

Notice the interesting distress color 
at the side of the page?

Page five

The canvas media forced me to think of
many different ways to alter and color them.
Especially love how this rich tone come up
after the first and second attempt
didn't bring much luck.

Page six

Hello, texture

Hello again, texture

Page seven

Last but not least,
last page

There are always first time for everything,
(my friend said this line recently 
about other subject which brings good laugh)
and this one included.
I never tried embossing on the tissue paper
than had been pressed down using gel medium
to a canvas before.
And for the first time doing it,
I made quite a thick emboss on it.
Didn't come up as expected.
Took two nights to dried it up completely.
And still not deliver good finish texture
when I touch it.

And just in case 
it will stick to other pages 
that have lots of embellishments,
I chose to put this one on the end
of the album.

All pages were done.
I had much fun trying this and that.
New thing, 
old thing, 
favorite thing,
yucky thing,
what-the-h*ll thing.

About everything.

Then I have this one to love and cherish.

This album will be on display at MWL
about next week.
So if any of you want to look it closer,
(but nicely, please. LOL)
just stop by at the store.

Hope it sparks some inspirations for you
to also do this kind of album at home!

Keep scrapping, you!

Am back to 12x12.

Tell you,
it's good to be back to 12x12 layout after a while.
It could be done in an hour (or so. LOL)
And the important thing is,
it shifted the point of view
of making a 3D project 
back to a flat layout again
just to refresh my mind.

The trigger was this photo of Adam,
which I found in a pile of other pictures.
He was only 14 months in this photo,
and just to bring back the feeling
of once having a 14 months baby boy
(this cute)
was enough to make me weep.

Enjoy the details..

And while the night was young,
why didn't I continue to second layout?

The details....

it was a good time spent.

Hope you like them too! 
Bye for now.
