Craft Barn Mini Album - Page 2

Good morning ! Another bright, sunny and warm one, just how we like it.

As promised, I am back with page 2 of my mini album that I am making for the Craft Barn Challenge. If you click on the picture in my sidebar it will take you over to the Craft Barn's blog where it gives details of how you can enter.

Again, I painted around the edges of my card with picket fence crackle paint and inked it with vintage photo distress ink.

The papers are Cosmo Cricket "Happily Ever After" and they are double sides so I was able to have some of the deep orange showing through with distressing.

The heart is a Bazzill chippie which I covered in white card, stamped with a flourish and then covered in crackle glaze.

The little tag on the photo is a snap clip by Melissa Frances that I have had in my stash box forever and never had the heart to use until now !

The butterfly was punched with a MS punch from the orange DP and some vellum and I added some pearls and stickles.

The flowers are a mixture from my stash with an old button and piece of raffia and tulle added.

This photograph was taken this time last year of the girls. I am changing all the photos to black and white for this project as I somehow think they look better.

I was lucky enough to be able to finish page 3 last night so I should be back tomorrow to show you that one ! To see page 1, please see the post below this one.

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave, they always mean so much.

Don't forget my BasicGrey blog candy. Just click on the photo in my sidebar to take you direct to the post.

Have a fantastic Monday whatever you are up to. I am enjoying the peace and quiet now that school has started again. I wasn't keen on the rushing around this morning but its nice to be at home with Izzy and get back into our usual routine.

Take care,
