Mini Album {Miss you Each & Every day}

Hi dear ID fans!
This is Gerry  here today sharing with you a mini album that I created in a memory of my father who passed away 2 years ago. This album was also published in a current issue of a Dutch magazine "Creatief met Foto`s". Needless to say that it was very difficult to work with his photos - but I must say that I was smiling back all the time at his face and creating with such love.
I enjoyed working with the chipboard book - it has a great shape & size, great possibilities to add your favourite pattern paper and to get creative with your stamps, embellishments and of course your Imaginarium Designs chipboard. I tried to keep it in an elegant & simple style. Once I have it back from the magazine I`ll give it as a present to my mom.

  • The chipboard book has originally three sheets. The front page you see was added by me.
  • I simply resized a piece of card stock and added it in front of the book.
  • Then I began decorating all the pages.

  • I combined here my favourite chipboard letters with Webster`s Pages alphabet stickers and I loved the result.
  • The chipboard was painted with green acrylic paint.

  • After stamping the background and adding the matted photo, I adhered the clock chipboard in front of the stamped clock and made it look as if it`s part of it.
  • The chipboard was painted with white acrylic paint and in the centre was added a light blue liquid pearl ("Rangers")

  • The word "remember" was treated with Glimmer Glam and has touches of white acrylic paint.

I hope you enjoyed my project today!
Wishing you a Chippie Week :-)
