Celia from Paper Beats Rock Designs up today with a fun project share using Creepy Cute Chronicles June Premium Membership stamp Hello Summer.
I found a simple shell design at TheNounProject.com, printed it out and used it as a template for my pages and album cover. I meticulously cut out the inside of the shell to create and cut file like shape for the cover. I machines stitched along the edges of each piece to make sure they weren't going anywhere and give the cover added texture and reinforce the shell shape as I planned to put fussy cut stamped images on top.
I grabbed a chipboard anchor from my stash and dabbed on dark, light, and metallic blue onto it with my finger. After letting that layer dry, I came back with a gold-black and glitter paint on top. While those last layers dried, I coloured up the Hello Summer stamp elements and fussy cut them out.
Once everything was ready I hot glued some tulle and gauze the the bottom left and top right of the album cover. I grabbed a camera from my stash and the anchor and tucked flowers around them both.
Then I added my Skull-ocolada and three different types of Thickers to create my title. The word "sweet" was actually white and blended in too much, so I grabbed some acrylic paint, watered it down a little, applied it, and then dabbed it off with a paper towel while it was still wet. I ripped a small piece of scrap paper and layered it behind the word DAZE so it would stand out a little better and voila! Cover Finished!
I can't wait to fill this little book with Summer Memories and countdown to Spooky Season!
