Envelope Album

First page of an envelope album which I started the other day but as you can see here I have sailed away on a different path yet again.  This is definitely what crafting is all about, just go with the flow!!

This time I have used a different stamp for the front which is from Indigo Blu called Dancing Children.  First used this stamp here but only showed the girls from the end, today you can see all the stamp..

Originally I wanted the album to be a little sophisticated but then veered off  and went for a Springtime feel.  Because our weather at the moment is so unpredictable … should be Spring by now … I went with a scene that looks as our weather does … storms, snow and in between some beautiful sunshine.  Background paper is a G45 sheet.

  Made the background by first stamping then masking off before adding DI’s Ripe Persimmon and a mixture of Mustard Seed plus Squeezed Lemonade.  Did the flick technique with water and when dry blended some Black Soot and sprayed a little of the Dylusions White Linen.   Coloured the children with a mixture of Copic Markers, really enjoyed getting them out and having a play something I haven’t done in ages.

Have to show more later as I am off to start my class project for today!!!
