Guest Design Team Member - Frilly and Funkie!

Hello Everyone

I am just back after a wonderful family holiday, just in time to tell you that I am
delighted to be Guest Design Team Member at Frilly and Funkie today !!  It is such
an honour to be guesting for such an amazing challenge blog - thank you so much to 
Linda Coughlin and her wonderful team.

The challenge this time at Frilly and Funkie is Pastels and Pearls and is being hosted by
Nancy of Tattered Treasures, one of the Frilly side of the team.  I was given the choice to create a Frilly or Funkie piece but I thought it might be
fun to combine the two, so here goes....

I created a mini album using Eileen Hull's Passport Book die (Sizzix 660331) and some old corrugated packaging to cut the album shape.
All three pieces were coated with DecoArt Media Fluid Crackle Paint and left to dry.  To create the pink colour I used DecoArt Media Fluid Titanium White, mixed with a dot of Primary Magenta.
It was a little too pink for my liking so I added some DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Titan Buff, here and there.
To make the signature pages I used Eileen's die along with a manila file (I left the tabs intact).
I found some cream coloured lace and linen cord in my stash.
I used the lace to decorate the edge of the book, and I glued this in place, before tying in the signatures with the linen cord.
The metal holder is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology range.  I painted it and the metal fasteners with Titan Buff, left it to dry and lightly sanded the edges.    The word 'remember' is from Tim's chit chat stickers.  I coated the word with Ranger Crackle Accents.
To finish off I added some pink ribbon and I also added some pearls to a head pin and added them to the linen cord binding.
Another look at the finished mini album.

Thanks again to Frilly and Funkie for having me as a Guest and thanks to all of you for your always kind words.  Now that my holiday with family is over, I hope to get back to visiting you, I really have missed being out of touch for nearly two weeks!

Edited:  I would like to add this to Country View Challenge where the challenge is Crackle.

Big hugs,  Anne xxx

  1. This is utterly delightful Anne, I so love the contrast of the rough corrugated card with the lacy pink and cream feminine look they have combined to create a beautiful shabby album. I love it. So glad you've had a wonderful break, two weeks have flown by. Huge hugs xxx

  3. Words fail me Anne, this is just gorgeous, only you can give us both styles in one project. I as you know am not a girly pink person, but this is so pretty it just works with the shabby style of the corrugated card. Beautiful work. So pleased the family visit was enjoyable, look forward to hearing all about it Mo x

  17. Linda is no fool - she knows how to find the best of the best! Anne this is gorgeous -- I am not much of a frilly person nor a pink lady. But I swear, this is one of the pretties little books I have seen in a very long time. Perhaps you can fill it with Holiday pictures - moments to remember! I love the corrugated cover with the pale colors and the lace - the whole thing is just splendid!!!!!

Congratulations to your on your GDT at Frilly and Funkie and congratulations to them for having YOU! I love the pinks here, although I am not usually a fan of the pastel pink.
