Mini May-nia with Dana

Hello and Happy Friday to you!

Dana here with you today sharing how I altered the Time 6"x8" Wire Bound Book for the Mini May-nia feature this month. The embossed cover and kraft patterned pages of this mini album are absolutely gorgeous.

I highlighted several of the printed designs with simple embellishments like glitter, ribbon, glaze and Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalking Ink. I kept my page design clean and simple to let the beauty if the pages shine. Each double page set features a family wedding photo on one side and journaling on the other.

The cover of this book features a wonderful embossed script and timepiece design and a Patsy Gaut quote that reads "Add a smile to your day and hours melt into minutes." I highlighted the embossed design and the edges of the cover with Amaretto PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

I added color to this page with Amaretto PowderPuff Chalking Ink and a water brush.

Simply swipe the water brush across the ink pad and paint the color onto the page.  With 24 colors of PowderPuff Chalking Ink to chose from, adding that perfect shade of color to your projects is easy! The high quality cardstock pages of this album hold up well to water!

The Babies-Kids-Family Itty Bitty Vellum Box Set contains 50 ready to use poems and quotes that will touch your heart and make you smile. This beautiful verse is so perfect for wedding photos and is just as relevant now as it was in 1925!

I added glaze to the timepiece designs on this page to add a subtle shine.

A simple bow and another vellum quote from the Babies-Kids-Family Itty Bitty Vellum Box Set was all I needed to finish this page.

I added glitter glue to the pattern on this page for a fabulous sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  If you love this album and want some more inspiration, click over to Lynn's Mini May-nia post, for her take on this book.
