Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale and Rare Oddities Mini Album

Happy Halloween,
      I finished a mini album tutorial by Kona Raven.  Her mini album is called Regions Beyond Mini Album.  The tutorial gives you 2 versions to choose from, one saves you a little paper.  Click on the link above to get to her Etsy Shop. Click on this link for the You Tube video .   My finished mini is 4.5" x 6.5", it has 3 total pages but there is a lot of interactiveness!!  Because I work full-time, it took me about a week in total to complete this mini.   Not a lot of embellishment because the paper is beautiful and the interactiveness inside.   Tutorial also comes with a video and it's priced right!  I hope you give it a try.  Til' next time...

Hugs from Your Grace!

Graphic 45 Prima Doll Altered Door Hanger

Howdy folks,
    It's been a while since I last posted.  I want to make this a quick post because I have so many projects in the works.  I recently returned from a trip to Europe and I have many, many projects planned for the thousands of pictures that I took.   This is a project I was working on before I left for Europe.   I used my favorite paper line of course...Graphic 45's French Country.  I covered the front and back of the door hanger (which I purchased at Hobby Lobby).  I sanded the paper edges flush with edges of the door hands, as well the center whole.  I inked the edged with Vintage Photo Distress ink.   I put the paper on using Mod-podge. The Prima Doll is Priscilla.  I was inspired to use Priscilla after returning from France and seeing the Moulin Rouge theatre.  I covered her using Glitz 6x6 Paper Pack "French Kiss" and some scrap harlequin paper I got from Hobby Lobby ( I think it's call Harlequin Script).  I coloured her with Copic Markers.  I used Recollection and Prima roses, I cut out a tag from the paper and back it on black card stock and popped it up on foam dots.  I also backed the doll with foam dots.  The lace is from Hobby Lobby.  The medal embellishment "Enjoy Life" also comes from Hobby Lobby.  I put a chipboard Fleur-de-Lys in the top right corner, I inked it with Black Soot distress ink and put an overlay of clear sparkle ink using my Atyou Spica pen. The feathers are from JoAnns.  I used a small piece of Graphic 45 paper from a different line, I think it was Trans Atlantic and also cut out a couple of the stamps from the same paper...And viola!!  I love how it turned out.  This was a really quick and fun project.  I've seen many Prima Doll tags and altered door hangers out there but if you haven't done one, I hope this inspires you to give it try.  Til' next time...

Hugz from Your Grace!
