Acrylic Album

I finally finished the mini album! This was my first venture with acrylic and to be honest, not a big fan. The paint sort of chips and the rub-ons can be pulled off. The album is a combination of an acrylic album that I got from AC Moore and the Cosmo Cricket’s Blackboard Mini Album. I combined the two because I had many pictures I wanted to use. I used many scraps from all different manufacturers for the album. I dug into my ‘stash’ (if you are seasoned scrapbooker, you know what I mean) for the embellishments. I tied AC ribbon to the rings to give it pizazz. I am not too pleased with the outcome of this project.

I totally screwed up this page. I like the page on the left with the boat. On the right side, you can see the paper backing from the next page. You have to match up all you papers when using acrylic. I was not paying attention.

The Charleston pages came out okay. I love the vintage look of the tags. The tags are from 7 Gypsies. The rub-ons were coming off, so I stuck the picture on top which helped.

All in all, not too thrilled with the outcome of this album. If anyone has acrylic tips, please share in the comments section.

Thanks!
