With a combination like that, and the recent launch of my first set of products, I couldn’t resist using my Ocean Album for this hop. All the papers used in this project came from a single 12×12 pad of Graphic45 Tropical Travelogue.
Here’s the sneak peak I share yesterday on Facebook.
This is a BIG album! It measures nearly 11.5″ tall (the seahorse) by 10.5″ wide (the angel fish)!
Note: You can click on any photo to enlarge it.
|I covered the sea horse with Graphic45’s Tropical Travelogue paper using Perfect Paper Adhesive. To give the seahorse texture, I created my own stencil and embossed it with USArtQuest’s 101 Light Artists Cement that was tinted with Perfect Pigment. Art Glitter sprinkled on while the cement was still wet added a sparkle!Of course, his eye is bling from Want2Scrap|
|The coral was also covered in Graphic45’s Tropical Travelogue paper and then inked. Want2Scrap pearls in 3 different sizes reminded me of the texture of real coral. The bottom of the piece was covered with 101 Light Artists Cement and coral, shells, sea glass and mica were embedded in the cement. The starfish using USArtQuest Prills.The fish and sign are fussy cut from Travelogue papers.The small purple and green coral are the branches from my Retro Birdsset from Want2Scrap! They have been painted shades of purple and green.|
|The shell was painted white and then pearl with Perfect Pigments. Pink lines were drawn with a colors pencil and then it was “blinged up” with Want2Scrap bling!|
|The angel fish is covered with Graphic45’s Tropical Travelogue paper.To create the yellow stripes, I covered a piece of yellow paper with Cut Bond Create. Next I cut out the stripe shapes and then adhered them to the fish with Great Tape. I peeled off the top layer of the Cut Bond Create and applied yellow glitter from Art Glitter.The eye was made by applying Cut Bond Create to a small white circle. A black rhinestone from Want2Scrap forms the center of the eye. The rest was covered in white glitter from Art Glitter.|
|The turtle shell was covered with Graphic45’s Tropical Travelogue paper, cut in to “tile shapes” on top of a base layer of paper. The entire piece was covered with embossing ink and then heat embossed with ultra thick embossing enamel (UTEE). The end result looks like a real shell!|
|The back of the turtle, the last page of the album, is covered in Graphic45’s Tropical Travelogue paper.|
I plan to continue working on this album, adding pockets, embellishments and, of course, photos and journaling!
