Family Journal - Heartfelt Creations

Welcome back to my blog today.  I am sharing an altered project with you for Heartfelt Creations.  I love their new 3D Journal Album that they released on black friday and altered the cover of one for todays project.

I started out with the paper collection from the Lush Lilac and here is what i came up with.

Cutting paper to fit the cover, i distressed some adding a coat of clear gesso so i wouldnt lose the pattern in the paper.

The large metal heart represents the heart of my family within it the working heart with gears; 

Just a gret way to showcase some of the paper collections with a touch of steampunk embellishments :D

Happy Scrapping.

</p><p> <b>Instructions: </b>
PARAGRAPH 1 Cut paper to fit front and back of album which is approx. 8.75 x 8.  I wanted to be sure to leave a white border all the way around.  Cut 4 panels from collection measuring 5x7; ink and distress all the edges some with seedless preserves others with vintage photo.  On the top 5x7 panel decided to create a mixed media cover using some metals from my stash.
PARAGRAPH Gesso all your embellishments first then attach the heart to the resin frame.  Place a steam punk heart button in the center of the heart and add some seed beads, gesso these.  Gesso some wooden gears. Het set to dry.  Color with art anthology sprays and mists.
PARAGRAPH 3 Gesso the center area of a 5x7 front panel, attach the mixed media items we prepared, tuck in some added gears as shown.  I adhered all the heavy embellishments to the cover with gel medium
PARAGRAPH 4 Using some seed beads, I added these to other areas on the cover just by using art institute dries clear and coloring them with alchemy wax.  I used a chipboard title from creative embellishments and colored it with alchemy wax too. Attach all the papers to the cover as shown.  I did add some alchemy wax to the base of the embellishments to add some highlight.
