Dynamic Duo Giveaway!

Here is my project with Punky Sprouts mixed medium mini album Teenie Beanie Sprout and TaDa's Jolly Holly Days made into a banner. It is fun and easy to make a mini album for the wall using this book which is 4-1/2" x 6 and comes with 7 pages in various banner shapes. There are 3 chipboard pages and 2 each of canvas and corrugated board. I started by painting each page with a quick layer of gesso, and then sprayed with glimmer mist in Cherub Pink.


Then I cut up a snowflake doily into pieces to fit the mid-sections of each page -- I did this so that when I misted, the background would be the same. Otherwise, the canvas and the different boards would end up different shades of pink! I topped off the doily with some Glimmer Glam in Chandelier.

For the chipboard letters, I used "Glass Beads" texture paste and gave each letter a quick coat. While they were still wet I misted them in some different shades of red/pink to match the paper. When dried, I tied with random ribbons and adhered with Beacon 3in1 glue.


I then cut the adorable paper to fit the tops & bottoms of each page, topped with lots of rhinestone bling and punched holes to tie together with some tulle!
