By the lack of creative posts here in the last few weeks, I'm sure many of you think I haven't been up to much, but I assure you, I have been! I've finished FOUR minis (yes, you read that right...four!), one of which I will share with you today.
I actually whipped up this little guy over the weekend. I just felt like creating so I printed some photos from our trip to Duluth in August and went on my merry way. The format of this mini was largely inspired by Celine Navarro's project here. Love that girls mad creating skills!
This mini actually came together quite quickly for me, which is a feat. Usually something like this would take a week, working on and off. This, however was done in a weekend! As you will see, I used a TON of Studio Calico Documentary. The papers were perfect for documenting this trip!
Duluth 2010• 6 x 4.5 Mini-Album: Patterned Paper (Studio Calico – Documentary) + Kraft Cardstock (The Paper Company) + Transparencies (Hambly) + Letter Stickers (Doodlebug, Jenni Bowlin, Making Memories, Chatterbox, American Craft, Heidi Swapp) + Journaling Stickers (Jenni Bowlin, October Afternoon)+ Adhesives (Tombo) + Chalk Ink (ColorBox) + Spray Ink (Adirondack Color Wash, Tattered Angels) + Paint (Making Memories) + Pens (Bic Mark-it)
Overall, I kept the concept fairly simple, patterned paper on one side, kraft paper on the other. Add a little mist, paint, transparencies, stickers, paint, outline it with a pen and wahlah! you have yourself a cute (and quick) little mini!
As I mentioned, I have a few more mini's that I will be sharing over the next few weeks, one of which is digi! Have a terrific Tuesday! :)
