winter wonderland mini album {DT work for PaperHaus}

hello scrappy friends!

i've got something very different to share with you today. 

usually i'm not a big fan of mini-albums, but with the holidays closing in and a very very sentimental grandma, i thought a mini album with all grand children will be the perfect gift for my mother!

so, here it is - my very first mini album - 

"winter wonderland"

products used: 
TILDA“winter memories” paper pad 
RANGER “coffee” archival ink pad 
RANGER stickles “star dust” and “copper” glitter glue 
white snow puff pen 
tattered angels glimmer glam “paprika” 
PRIMA marketing Resin Mushrooms 
PRIMA marketing clear stamps 
the crafter’s workshop “circle explosion” mask

i began by covering the edges of the cardstock sheets with gesso. after it dried i stamped the text with brown ink and distressed the edges with the same color.

i covered the cardstock sheets with pattern paper from TILDA’s "winter memories" collection. for the front cover i used different die cuts from the paper pad. i embossed them, embellished them with glitter glue and layered them with 3d tape.

for the back cover i used darker patter paper and the crafter's workshop mask with modeling paste.

for the inner page i used a picture of the three cousins {my THEO and ELISE and WILLY - my sister's}.

i covered the PRIMA resins with a mixture of gesso with glimmer glam. after the first layer was dry i applied a coat of glimmer glam only to match the paper collection palette.

i added white puff paint to the branches to make them look like they are covered with snow.

i've only 3 pages done so far. but there is still plenty of time... i keep telling myself:-)

i hope you liked my mini-album.

i promise to finish it and post the rest of the pages before christmas!

have an amazing week!

hugs 'n smiles,
