Hi everyone…

It’s Nanné here and I’m here to share a Castle themed mini album I created using the Bracket mini album from the Creative Embellishments store.. It was super easy to apply the paper to it, I just glued down a 6×6 piece of paper and then trimmed the edges with my craft knife.. Used a sanding brick to distress the edges..

This mini album will have photos of use from last summer as we (us and my in-laws) visited one of the oldest castles here in Finland.. You are welcome to roam the castle and see how people lived back in the day.. They have historians through the castle to tell you about a room or an event etc.. We had a great time..

Here is what I created:

for the cover, I used a distressed brick stencil and some home made texture paste (lots of videos on youtube on how to make your own texture paste) and I dried it using a heat tool, which created a bit of the crackle/bubbly look. I then distressed it a bit using distress ink, vintage photo and then rubbed it with silver inka gold paint.

For the chipboard elements, I painted those black and then rubbed silver Inka Gold on them, kind of like a rub-n-buff..

I added lots of chipboard goodies to the inside of my mini album so how about we check out the inside of the album:



and there we have it..

I just send my photos off to be printed and then I can choose which ones will have a permanent home in my album..

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my mini album..

Till next time
