Acrylic Mini I made for my Friend Kim


Well the story behind this album is Kathryn from Life's a scrap beach was hosting a class on how to put together an acrylic mini. I initially knew I wouldn't be following along as I'm not a Big fan of these types of albums because I don't like the smudges and fingerprints they collect when viewed (or created). My Best Scrap buddy Kim said she wanted me to make her an acrylic mini. Well you know how that goes when a Besty asks it's hard to say NO. I did have 2 albums in my stash I had bought Long ago. I kinda~sorta agreed to make one but it had to be with G45 papers. Once the class started I watched but never actually started working on my project. Once the class finished My inspiration hit me like a bolt of lightning. I thought Kathryn created a Fabulous mini I love every artistic element but I wanted a different style and feel. Thus my first acrylic mini was created. You can see it HERE. I still needed to create Kim's mini so I sat down with my papers and just pondered what pages I liked and what shapes inspired me. This is the end result~~~~~


My most favorite element in the album is the Clever little Train I created.


I know this looks like nothing has changed but that was my intention If you looked close there is a hidden photo mat that is matched exactly to the page behind it in the photo above.


Thanks for stopping by Have a Happy Crafty Day!
