Mixed Media Baby Album

One week-end I was playing around with a new resist canvas mini-album, new pastel chalk edgers and wood icons...

 ...and decided to make a whole album it for my daughter to put all the baby stuff in once she has her little girl due in June!

 The colors are soft and sweet and totally PERFECT for a new baby girl! 

(You could definitely customize this to fit a boy too.) 

First color the cover with chalk edgers. Then spritz lightly with water and blend with a wet-wipe.

I used the following products:

PanPastels, SpectraFix (for sealing the PanPastels-you can spray it inside!), Ranger embossing ink, Prima Chalk Edgers, Fabri-Tac adhesive, doilies, stamps, Hello, Pastel papers and a bunch of fun Prima stuff. See bottom for list of Prima stuff, video of class and Friday Freebie link!

Here are some of the inside pages!


The inside flap is colored with Comfort Craft Chalk Edgers with a Prima Newsprint Mini Frame.
