At the end of June, we celebrated at her school with a special Farewell party...which almost seemed to morph into a Prom event! yikes!
After saying NO to a spray tan [among other beautification requests], I gave in and bought DQ a lovely new dress, high heels, a wrap and a clutch.
To commemorate the event [aside from paying credit card bills] I made DQ a Prima mini album, which I taught as a class at The Urban Scrapbook last month.
|These album covers are originally a plain white canvas with a white resist script that stands out when you colour the canvas.|
TIP: A little spray and a little ink goes a LONG way. Start with small amounts and add more if you prefer darker shades.
The flowers are also sprayed with Lindy's.
|Prima crystals & pearls flourish, I am Roses flowers and leaf, die cut bird and window and cheesecloth.|
|The window is cut using a Poppystamps die "Grand Madison Window", and I cut it out from the Prima album packaging instead of chipboard. It's dry brushed with a little gesso and inked lightly with brown chalk ink.|

|I made these feathers...I'll show you how at the end of this post|
|I will add my private journaling offline :)|
|Pages 6 and 7|
|A little lacing adds an elegant touch...|
Here is a quick tutorial on how I made the feathers...
|Supplies: Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap, Scissors, Brown ink, Glue n Seal|
|Fold your strip of tissue wrap to create 3 layers|
|Adhere the folded sections together|
|Cut out your feather shape|
|Starting at top of feather, snip inwards towards centre at 45 degree angles.|
|Ink edges with Brown chalk ink or Distress Ink.|
|Here is the finished feather!|
