Tea Tag & Kindy Mini Album

Hi Everyone,  I have two projects to share today with you....
Firstly, a 'Tea Time Tag' - these are large tags which when completed can be made into an album. 
I painted the following chipboard pieces with Vintage Photo Distress Stain - 'Love' from Love, Cherish, Adore Small, 'Forever' from Remember, Forever, Together Small , Twigs Two on Board, and a single butterfly from 4 Small Butterflies . I wanted to add more character to the chipboard pieces, and wiped with my finger across the pieces with the Iridescent Gold, Shiva Stick.  It leaves a beautiful shimmer, and even though it is an actual oil paint, it dries normally within 24 hours.  You can see some of the detail of the applied Shiva Stick by clicking on, and enlarging the photographs.  The butterfly I covered totally in Gold, and poked the remaining paint through the tiny holes using a pin.  Was very easy and so effective, and I adore the warm glow of the paint.

Glitz Paper Pack 'French Kiss'

My second project.... Ever since Graphic45 brought this beautiful paper range out, I have wanted to create a Kindy book.  Of course, the gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard pieces matched perfectly.
Close Up of 'Lower Case Letters' (IDALC0001)
To create my Kindy Memory Book, I cut the Imaginarium Designs 12 X 12 chipboard into 6" X 6" pieces.  Graphic45, 'An ABC Primer Collection' was used to decorate each of the pages, and various chipboard elements were used throughout the book to highlight and decorate pages.
Close Up of 'Numbers' (IDN0001)
'Oil Slick' Glimmer Glaze was applied to the Imaginarium Designs chipboard - 'Lower Case Letters' (IDAL0001), and 'Numbers' (IDN0001), forming the title.  Then, Glossy Accents was applied, adding a lovely high sheen so the title really was a focus of the main cover.

The pages have various pockets to hold further photographs, journaling, or other memorabilia.

From the 'An ABC Primer Collection' a variety of tags were cut from the page elements and tucked into hidden pockets.
'Small Bicycle' (IDT0018)
Page 5 and 6
'Four Birds on Board' (IDS0029)
The 'Bicycle Small' (IDT0018) and 'Four Birds on Board' (IDS0029) were generously covered with 'Liptsick' Kaisercraft ink, which left a beautiful rusty appearance due to the colour of the chipboard beneath.  The bird's wings and beaks were coloured 'black' using an Artline200 pen, then Glossy Accents applied to highlight the area.
'Small Clock Face' (IDS0036)
The 'Small Clock Face' (IDS0036) was painted using Creative Inspiration Paint in 'Gold', so that it would stand out brilliantly against the papers.  A small brad was added to the centre and I cut out tiny clock hands from a remnant of black cardstock.
