Once Upon A Time in Paris Mini Album with Veronica

Hi, my turn to share and today I would like to show you my latest mini album.  I have made several of these because they are fairly easy to create and make GREAT gifts.  This one is a Paris theme inspired by my girl friend's trip to France.

I used the Leaky Shed Studio Victorian Mirror Frame.  It is so beautiful and detailed, I thought it made the perfect center piece for my album.


I misted the chipboard with Art Anthology colorations sprays in blues and greens.
Then I rubbed some metallic olive over the entire frame.

As a highlight I finished the frame with gold metallic rub-on;  just in the corners
I also decided to add this beautiful Harja Flourish to my mini album.  On this piece of beautiful Leaky Shed Studio chipboard I decided to go with a different technique.
My process:
 Light Gesso:
Paint with H20 very thick, not much water

Emboss with clear powder
I love the way chipboard looks with embossing powder on it.
This part is optional.  I used it because the rub-ons were already out.  I rubbed some metallic gold on the sides for depth.

Now that I have finished my Harja Flourish I can add it to my mini.  You can see the finished inside of my album on my blog Kitsnbitscraps.
I hope I have inspired you to try out some Leaky Shed Studio chipboard.  There are so many themes and shapes.  I especially liked using this beautiful Frame for my Paris Book.  See you soon.
Happy Scrapping, Veronica (Kitsnbitscraps)
