A Mini Album

Hi everyone.  Happy Wednesday.  I hope these first few days of spring have been good to you.  It has been pouring rain here the last few days, so I am sorry about the picture quality.  Sunlight just has not been available.

I found a cute little mini album at Michael's recently; spiral bound with kraft paper pages.  You know I just had to have it.

I covered it with a bit of burlap that I painted white and then inked. I added some of my favorite embellishments;  gorgeous new Vintage Trinkets by Marion Smith, tiny mini roses from Prima (one of my favorite embellishments) that I painted with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, a larger Prima flower under my Prima chipboard and some Prima flourishes that I had cut up earlier .  I even accented my grungeboard with little bits of Prima e-line bling.

I attached some of the larger charms from the Vintage Trinkets to a chain I had also found at Michaels and then attached the chain to the spirals.

As usual, I have no idea what my plans are to fill this little book...I just had so much fun making it.   Hope you have some fun today.
