7 gypsies mini album.

I found the neatest mini album at Unforgettable Memories last week. It's a 7Gypsies wood album and the pages are all different shapes. I started out by selecting three coordinating acrylic paint colours and painted fronts and backs of each page. Some pages got a little more paint than others. Here's the cover...I did some doodling around the heart opening and decorated the front with mostly 7gypsies product; stickers, rubons,and gaffer tape.

I punched flowers out of the 7 gypsies red velvet polka dot paper and then used the negative strips to add some colour behind my photos. On the flowers I used black jewels in the centres. On the negative strip I used Kaiser pearls as the flower centers.

The 7Gypsies velvet flocked papers are so pretty and who doesn't love all that texture? I used it to frame the roof of the 'house' page. I also cut a circle and placed it behind my photos on the 'quote' page.

I just love the 7Gypsies patterned gaffer tape. Just like using strips of patterned paper, but it sticks down all by itself and has a texture all it's own.

I was in a doodling mood the evening I did these two pages. Daniel and Tikanii are surrounded by scribbles. LOL

I used gaffer tape and word stickers to stick down the circle photo of Duncan. Breanna is surrounded by rays of 7Gypsies pp.

Some action photos of the kids. I like the way the pictures hang over the sides of the pages.

Some more gaffer tape, rub-ons and did you notice the Maya Rds felt I've used on most of my pages? Those would be the birds and trees.

And my back cover. The little sticker says 'created by Your Very Tired Mother'. I thought that was appropriate. LOL.
So now I have to get Rick to do some magic with his power tools and get this all put together on a key ring.
