Mini Album - Giving Thanks and Maya Road Canvas book

Altered Maya Road canvas mini book using the Giving Thanks and Blingage lines. Of course a little distress ink and some misting spray.

Instead of using the album traditionally I turned it on it's side for a flip album so I could use these specific photo's in it. These are my girlfriends oh so photographic children, I love it when she has photo's for me to use for projects, Thank you so much April!!

I sprayed mist on the canvas then inked the edges. While it was drying I painted one of Zach's Book Plates from the Blingage line in ivory then inked it until I got my desired look, I put the transparency word "Children" under it and attached it to the canvas book end (which would be the top of this album, either way it works.) I Then created my rosette and started layering my accents, tied the ribbon on using a Crown and the bottom half of Seth's fleur de Lis, also from the Blingage line.

For my pages I layered all of the chipboard book pages with the Giving Thanks papers, inked and sanded the edges just a bit for a little softer look.

Then I measured my transparency pages and inserted them in the album. Then I added my photo's, placing the tabs under them as I went added additional tags & embellishments from the Giving Thanks line and as much BLINGAGE as possible!
