After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Want2Scrap blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!This was my first experience working withWANT 2 SCRAPproducts and wow, did I have fun with it!I received the "Retro Album" and had a tough time deciding on whether to do a traditional album, a banner or home decor. In the end, I was really wanting to use the "Renew Collection" as I hadn't had the chance to play with all of the cute file folders and punch-outs...I thought these would best represented in an album.
OUR HAPPINESS In prepping the corrugated album, I inked around the edges of the flat sides with Memento's Tuxedo Black. On the corrugated sides, I used Color Shine Black Velvet Spritz. To the fancy ends (flat side only) I painted the areas with a white PITT pen by Faber-Castell.
To the front cover, I layered a Renew patterned paper with one of the file folders and then embellished with a puzzle piece and flowers from Petaloo. Wanting to hide the area where the white pen marking met the corrugated board, I added a strip of gingham ribbon and then topped with Mother of Pearl Rhinestones by Want2Scrap.
The next two pages feature Authentique's new Hampton Art Stamps and the beautiful flourish of adhesive pearls by Want2Scrap. I stitched the file folder together so that tags would be tucked inside.
As you may can tell, I switched the pages around so that two flat sides would be together, as well as two corrugated sides...I thought it added even more interest :) Again, I used the different punch-out elements for the majority of my embellishments...when you layer them together with foam you have a whole new look!
I removed the original centers from the flowers and added the large Mother of Pearl Rhinestones instead. The Tear Drop Pearls look perfect as the center for the punched butterfly!
