Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on 49 and Market blog with a new step-by-step project. This time it is an album cover that is a little over 12″1/2 by 12″1/2.

Basic process:

  1. Add a design with a stencil and Vintage Gold  Icing paste;
  2. Die-cut some flourishes in a watercolor paper and embossed them with Lapis Lazuli Blue Gold and King Midas Gold;
  3. Color a resin frame, primed with clear gesso, with the Burnished Brass ink;
  4. Color some Country Blooms and mini-series flowers with the leftover Burnished Brass ink;
  5. Highlight the details of the frame with the waxes Denim Blue and Vintage Gold;
  6. Cut the Dear John sheet in several pieces and some tickets from the Frame Set n°02;
  7. Glue all the elements of your composition with 3D Matte Gel;
  8. Add some pearls, micro-pearls, microbeads;
  9. To finish the cover, stamp around the composition with the Gold Rush acrylic paint and the stamp 1787;
  10. Don’t forget to decorate the spine of the album and add some lace and jute cording.
