This week we are back with November Jillibean Soup Guest Designer Vicki Boutin. Vicki is sharing with us of this minibook that she created last week. Here's the minibook!
She used one of Jillibean Soup's corrugated albums and jazzed it up with some paint and glitter.
She placed a mask over the album and dabbed on a thick layer of paint.
Immediately, remove the mask and sprinkle the wet paint with glitter. Let it dry. Also, note that she dry brushed all the edges (cover and pages) with the green paint. To finish the cover, she added yellow dots with a paint dabber.
Cut 12 x 12 paper into three 12 x 4 strips. Fold the strips in half to make flip out pages.
When Vicki creates mini books, she likes to prep out all pieces to make assembly quick. She diecut mats, punched circles, and cut the flip out mats. Jillibean is the perfect company to make mini books. They have alot of products that have multiple pieces of the same shapes, sticker sizes, etc. These lend themselves well to a project with lots of pages.
For the inside pages, Vicki masked and misted them. To add the black circles, she used plastic cups and ink to create the "stamped" images. The arrows and numbers are Jillibean Soup.
The star was covered in red chalk ink. The arrow was inked in yellow and then Vicki added a glimmer glaze.
Vicki loves the Jillibean kraft tags. They made a great little add on to the album. She simply layered stamps, added the numbers and an arrow.
Here is a closeup of a completed page. She just repeated the design throughout the book. Hope that a look at all the little details help you if you decide to recreate this mini book. Vicki will be back next week with a few gift tags using the same techniques in a different week.
Please remember to check out Vicki on her blog. Thanks so much and have a great day!
