The inspiration for this album came from a past project i did for Rusty Pickle a few years ago but on a smaller scale. I also loved some of the ideas that Pamela Young used on her own RP album. Pamela has a step by step tutorial for her album which you can find here.
I didnt use the front cover of the maya road album as it didn't match what i wanted to do, so i will use it on another project.
Make a heart from chipboard. Mine is a Rusty Pickle one that i have trimmed slightly to fit the wings. TIP. Make a template to make more hearts for the other pages. Also make one slightly smaller for paper hearts later.
Next cut 12" x 1" strips of patterned paper and roughly pleat them. From the outside edge inwards, begin to layer them across the wings.
Add a prima tag and some alpha stickers for your title.
Next its time to decorate inside.
For the inside of the back and front covers i used a technique that i have shown you before. Glue chipboard letters down before painting them and inking them with black stazon.
Add your chipboard heart, pad out the recess with foam pads before adding pp, chipboard tags and tags distressed with walnut stain.
And here is the finished page.
Cover the next 2 pages with a patterned paper. Cut strips of fabric and ribbon and radiate them across the page. Secure with strong DS tape. Attach your chipboard heart. This is were your templates come in handy. Add a distressed tag and squares of pp. Carefully cut down the middle of the heart and re punch the holes.
This is the finished page
And here is the finished page
Cover the next 2 pages in a plain CS. Take a mask and a spray mist and cover the pages. Dry with a heat gun carefully.
Add your heart, pp, and tag before carefully cutting the heart in half.
And finally the last page
And the finished page
