PREPARATIONS:

STEP 1:
SILHOUETTE:
From the C91 papers, cut various tribal embellishments, frames, branches and ‘tall grass’ designs. – they will be used as embellishments throughout the album.

STEP 2:
Paint your chipboards using green, orange and brown paints.

STEP 3:
Fussy cut animal silhouettes from the Vanishing C91 003 paper.

STEP 4:
From white card, cut rectangles the size of your photos so that you know what you are working towards. I have framed my ‘fake photos’ and painted them with the same paints I use throughout the projects.

ALBUM BASE:
STEP 1:
Decide on the size of your album. I wanted to have pages 15cmx12cm. From the 12x12 white card stock. Cut out 3 rectangle sized 15x25 and score width-wise at 12 and 13cm. These will be your inserts.

STEP 2:
For the cover, cut out 15x27cm rectangle and score width-wise at 12 and 15cm.

STEP 3:
Glue the inserts together, making 6 pages to create on. Once dry, glue the inserts into the cover.

STEP 4:
For the cover, from the Threatened paper cut two rectangles sized 12.2x15.4 and glue them to the front and back cover.

STEP 5:
Paint the spine and, using a brad, attach the ribbon which will be used to tie the album shut.

INSERTS:
STEP 1:
From the Vanishing C91 003, Extinction C91 006 and Endangered C91 007 papers, cut 14.5x11.5 rectangles – they are the base for your inserts.

STEP 2:
Paint all the bases with clear gesso. Once dry, using DS061 stencil and texture paste, add hoof and paw prints in various directions. Sprinkle paints all over.

Now, time for embellishments.

COVER:
STEP 1:
Sprinkle paints all over the cover.

STEP 2:
Ensuring that the ribbon is placed under the cluster, arrange paper scraps and embellishments with the truck chipboard on the top.

STEP 3:
Add mulberry flowers and leaves.

INSERTS:
STEP 1:
On each of the pages, build up layers of embellishments using all the elements you prepared previously (see PREPARATION) and paper scraps building up paper clusters. On top, add the ‘fake photo’.

STEP 2:
Add mulberry flowers and leaves.

STEP 3:
Attach the inserts to the album pages.


Your mini-album is ready!
