Keep Sake Album with Lisa Marie

Hello everyone!
Lisa-Marie here today to share a cute little keepsake album!
With Christmas just around the corner, I thought I'd give you an idea for a personalised gift.  It's actually quite quick and easy to make too!
If you're anything like me (i.e. a thrifty scrapper who hoards all sorts of bits and bobs!) you will surely have a little cardboard box lying around somewhere.  Well, now is the time to grab it and start creating!
Here is my video tutorial for this little album!
I do hope that you enjoyed my video and that I have inspired you to create something similar!
Until next time, happy scrapping!

Deb's Art Journal tutorial

Hello Off the Rails friends,

I have for you today an Art Journal page using some old phonebook pages.  I have saved our old phonebook from the recyclers as I am tempted to make it into an art journal, but I have yet to make a start on that. the mean time, I have decided to use some of the pages in my art journal.

I gathered my supplies:  Gel Medium, Dylusions Ink Spray, White Gesso, Hero Arts Black Ink, Hero Arts Rubber stamp - Number Pattern, Crackled Texture Paste, Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture paste and Kaisercraft Script stencil, along with enough torn strips from the phone book to cover the art journal page.

I took the torn strips and glued them onto the page using the Gel Medium.  I then gessoed the page to protect it from the wet medium to come.  I took some more phone book pages and randomly stamped on the edges of those, using a piece of watercolour paper as a craft mat.  I wanted to use the paper to punch some circles, and I wanted the random numbers stamped on the paper.  I then tore the stamped phone book pages into various sized strips, and punched different sized circles from the watercolour paper.

Next I laid the stamped strips vertically and horizontally in the top left and bottom right corners of my journal page, again gluing them down with Gel Medium.  I then added the various sized circles.

When all this was dry, I clamped the Kaisercraft stencil to my page and used the Crackled Texture paste, randomly through the stencil, and then went over that in places with the Sparkle Texture Paste

The fun starts when the texture pastes are dry.  Add your wet medium,  I used Dylusions Ink Spray in Vibrant Turquoise sprayed water to get the ink running.  Continue until you are happy with the result.  When dry, I added some ink splatters and some circles made with the ink spray lid dipped in the ink, and finish off with some word or phrase stickers.

Doesn't the vibrant colour really look great with the crackled and sparkle paste?

The finished project:

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  See you all next time
