A Masculine "Thrilling" Mini album with Art Anthology & Basically Bare

********************
Hi there Loes here today with a mini album from Basically Bare.



 When I saw this mini album I knew exactly what I wanted to create... an masculine mini with the photo's of our middle son.


I painted the corners of the pages and used paint from Art Anthology together with the sheets of  The Crafter's Workshop for the designs on the pages, so my hands were very dirty after I finished this project.



 What I love about this mini album is the different texture of every page! You have kraft, chipboard, corrugated cardboard, and a canvas page all in one album!


For those of you who have seen my work in the past, you know that I love to work with the paper collections and use them for other themes than what they where designed for....
So this time, I used the "Thrilling" collection for this mini album about our son.


I couldn't resist using the detail stickers of the "Be(you)tiful" collection together with the "Thrilling" collection


 Also, I distressed every piece of paper that I used on each page.


The text you see on the right page is also made with a stencil from The Crafter's workshop.


Thanx for stopping by!

  4. It is hard to find pages about teenage boys (I've got 2), you offer a lot of talented ideas and show Authentique is a good paper to use with them.
