Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Joni challenged us to make a Mini Album. I haven't made a mini album in a LONG time, so this was a nice challenge for me. . .although I have to send my little album off to Julie! LOL I guess I'll have to make another one for myself! :) I decided to make my mini album a little distressed too. At first I started with clean and simple, then when I watercolored the image, the "clean and simple" appearance left so I distressed the whole thing. The mini album measures 3.5" square. The cover is a 3.5"x7" piece of Certainly Celery, and the inside pages are 3.25"x6.5" pieces of white cardstock. Hopefully Julie will like it and can find some little pictures to put in it! :) Make sure you stop by the other Prettie Girl blogs (and Carolina too!) to see what they came up with for today's challenge! The links are in my sidebar! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Simply Special (Paper Pretties); Paper- Certainly Celery (SU), Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink), watercolor paper; Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Dark Brown (Fluid Chalk ink) Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun, Certainly Celery (SU); Accessories- Aquapainter, grosgrain, sponge; Finished album measures 3.5" square.
