Forever, Mini Album..

This month, for Creative Inspirations Paint I have created a mini album - this project has been in the making for some time, and it is finally nice to have it completed.  I have taken close up photographs at times, to enhance and show the beautiful, shimmery detail of the paints.

The album is a very special one, as it contains memories of my brother, Paul, who is no longer with us.
Throughout the album, I have painted various elements including flowers, chipboard, die-cut doilies, foliage and so forth..... giving the pages, a real spark of shimmer.  I love the 'Gold' in the Creative Inspirations Paint line, it would have to be one of my favourites, that I used ALL the time. Flowers were brushed with Pink Highlights... really bringing them to life...
Cheery Lynn Design die cut elements above, washed in 'Gold'.
Imaginarium Designs Chipboard 'Forever' looks magical, painted in 'Gold'...
More 'Gold'.... oops...can't help myself in the 'gold'...
Pink Highlights, washed over paper elements used throughout the album, to add a beautiful finishing touch.
Sage washed over foliage, again... Gold highlighted over die-cuts..
Close up, looks like I missed places, but I haven't!  :-)
Even edges of book, tags, and rose edges, touched with 'Gold'...

Hope you enjoyed ... my 'special' album... now I'm off to journal 'memories' which I treasure with all my heart....

Sandie, even though you used gold liberally, it never looks gaudy -- only delicately elegant! Fab project. :)
