Flamingo Scraps has these FABULOUS packs of Moxxie 6x6 Die Cut Paper Packs in a variety of palettes -- 12 double sided sheets per pack -- simply made for a snazzy 6x6 mini album. And inexpensive too at $3.49 a package!
I chose to work with the Jewel pack as, coincidentally, it follows closely the Pantone Fall Color Palette!
My base was a black mini album with binder ring pulled from the depths of my stash (along with some other goodies)!
This album is going to be donated to a charity crop, so I thought FRIENDS was a perfect title! The gorgeous flower and butterfly on the cover are Prima Andorra -- both in one package, what a bargain!! A few swipes of Tim Holtz Distress Ink altered these beauties to just the right colors. I used Distress Inks, Glimmer Mist, Distress Stickles, and Distress Paints on most every page and embellishment to blend and alter to the desired shades.
Here is the album fanned out to show both sides of the pages! Embellishments include Prima flowers, lace, felt devines, and bling, and misc. ribbons including strips of burlap!
This page shows the use of distress mediums to highlight, blend, and alter embellishments to compliment the colors in the paper pack. Note the Prima felt devine in the pic on the left was trimmed to fit and altered from its original white with distress ink!
This page makes use of a nearly forgotten vintage embellishment from my stash with a Prima flower vine, spilling out the top, in shades of grey/silver/ pewter -- showing up more and more as THE new neutral!
The photo on the left details the embellishment of the binder ring with ribbons, tulle, burlap, and some fabulous metal accents -- a vintage key, and washers from the hardware store -- in the same neutral metallic range.
Give these fab Moxxie papers a try and don't be hesitant to use those distress inks, stickles, paints, and Maya Mist and Glimmer Mist to alter embellies to coordinate with your choices!
