Shabby Chic Mini Album and Large Tea Tag - Imaginarium Designs

This month for Imaginarium Designs I have created a mini album from the Book 3 Sheets in a Shabby Chic style.  The album consists of 3 pages, which vary in size - fantastic for decorating the very edges as you can see in the photographs.
 The title of the album Every Picture has a Story to Tell is perfect for albums, and the Tiny Vine Flourishes really complete the floral arrangement.  All the chipboard elements in the album have been spray painted with white spray paint, and little hot-fix crystals affixed, to decorate.  
  I really loved the 'Love' word on its own from the Love You, so carefully snipped the two words apart to use on its own.  The 'You' I have put away for a later project.  

 Butterflies and bling go hand in hand, well for me anyhow!  :-)  I only adhered half the butterfly wings to the album page, this allowed for tags to be neatly tucked beneath the other wing. 
The 2nd page, with the 3rd showing beneath.

Love, Cherish, Adore scatter over pages and various tag elements, and are a brilliant way to decorate, an already busy page.

 The very back album page is actually a pocket, to hold further photographs or memorabilia. The Tulip Flourishes are place holders for further photographs.

Angel Tag

 and my second project is a Large Tea Tag.  The image is an actual photograph I have cut out, and adhered the Large Butterfly to the back, giving her angel wings.

The chipboard pieces, were spray painted white, and then a light brush with Walnut Stain, Distress Ink applied just to age the chipboard slightly. 

 Adore, is from the Love, Cherish, Adore Small, I could use these small sayings in every project, they are perfect for everything!!

Oh my word Sandie. I am running out of words to describe how wonderful I think your creations are!
This has got to be one of the most beautiful mini albums I have ever seen. The colours, design and details are just stunning. I could look at it for ages.
Your tag is gorgeous too, your attention to detail is always amazing.

Hugs Sue
