Hello and Welcome to Southern Ridge Trading Co.
Ava here and wanted to share with you a album in progress….
Let’s celebrate Spring.
Spring is here in various degrees of temperature, so let promote flowers, cool breezes and lots of sunshine.
This album cover is my delicate vision of new beginnings in Spring Time. This album cover has been retired from the store and you can now find new designs in the store.
Here is one cover that would be great to design with.
So, let’s get started with the supplies to gather in preparation for applying many treatments to his album cover.
A wide range of stencils can be found in the Stencil tab of the store.
Apply gesso to the chipboard as a base treatment to lighten up the chipboard and have the mist mediums to have nice absorption.
A little Glam painting and then of course some glimmer painting.
Remember the modeling paste to add texture to your project.
You can see on page 2 I used the small stencil.
Tip: DecoArt Media Modeling paste will mix well with your glimmer mist as in this project to colour the paste from white to your desired colour. I added a small amount of green glimmer mist to the paste, mixed well and stippled the front cover outer edges of the album.
Add a few embellishment to my pages and my album is ready for photos.
Here are the 2 pages side by side.
Once I placed the album cover and page 1 back onto the rings, I wanted to create some fullness to the front cover and I achieved this with beautiful ribbons to cover the metal rings.
So, here is your look at the front cover. I think this will be a continuous work of art as I continue to create pages throughout the next few months.
