"Family" Accordion Album

This is my first-ever accordion album, and I love, Love, LOVE the way it turned out! This was for my MIL. The album is from Maya Road and I covered the "photo side" with K&Co Que Sera Sera paper.

On the back-side, I covered some Color-boc chipboard letters with the K&Co paper to spell "Family." For the background, I painted each piece in a different MM paint color, then used my Dreamcoat Crackle medium with white on top. Then I did various applications and techniques using glimmer mist and embossed designs to "frame" them out.

This "M" background turned out really neat... after I sprayed on the glimmer mist, I heated it up with the heat gun and it "bubbled" up the paint! Cool!

  1. You never cease to amaze me! This is another amazingly beautiful project. I love all the small little details that you added to the "picture" side. The crackle paint looks so pretty. Your talent stuns me!
