Welcome to the team blog hop with StencilGirl and & Eileen Hull Inspiration!
For today's project, I used Eileen Hull's designed Sizzix Bigz Die -Flower Petal and Sizzix Scoreboard XL die photo album cuts. I also used Eileen's Barn Wood stamp from Craffiti Direct.
I began with a light gray acrylic wash on the outside of the album covers. I then used Maria McGuire's Doodle It Layered Petals stencil from StencilGirl Products to add a subtle floral to the cover with white acrylic paint. I painted the binding edge in Naples Yellow Hue and painted the petals of the flower to match.
I used Tim Holtz tissue to cover the inside of the album. Mostly because I am a sloppy painter! :)
After the petals were painted and dried, I stamped them in white and then in gray for texture and interest. I glued a small piece of tissue in the center of the flower to add a bit of fun to the flower.
