Kaisercraft Curiosity Album cover by Beverley

Hi everyone, Bev here again.  Hope you are all having a great week and that today brings a day that New Zealand wins the America's Cup! We have had a few nail biting performances and a few disappointments the last few days!

Well onto my project for the day using the gorgeous collection by Kaisercraft called Curiosity. I have gone for a more mixed media approach this week and created a cover for my Zutter 8 x 8 album.
 Here is the finished project:

I started out with the album cover from Zutter.  Inside it has a pocket to slip your bound zutter album in - it also has a clear page in to slip in the pocket once it has been attached to the rest of the album you make for the cover. The cover just adds more to a bound album and covers the wire when on display.

I then painted the album using a brown paint dauber to create a fake woodgrain effect.
You could use a distress paint by Tim Holtz for this and add more effects by using more then one colour and spritzing with water.

The next step was using a Crafters Workshop Brick Mask and Moulding Paste to create some texture to my album cover.  I then sprayed the cover with some mists made with various colours of Perfect Pearl Powders, Distress Ink Reinkers and water.

I then embellished the cover with the following:

Here are some closeups.  as you can see I have cut up the diecuts from the couture creation die using American crafts cardstock. This die cuts beautifully!

Hope you all have a great week and thanks for visiting!
Go Emirates Team New Zealand!
