Eileen Hull and Crescent collaboration

Hello Everyone!

Eileen Hull and Crescent are collaborating all this month and the team has had the pleasure of working with Crescent RENDЯ Paper and also Crescent Photo Mat Art Board.  Today I am sharing a project made using the paper and also Eileen Hull's 
mat board (Sizzix 656491) to create a mini album.

Crescent developed the RENDЯ Paper so that stamps, sprays, paints, inks and other mediums can be used with no leakage onto the other side.  This makes it ideal for use
 in journalling.  For my project today I used Paper Artsy paints and am pleased to 
say that none of it bled through.

I'll take you through some of the steps I took to make this album.
I started by cutting Eileen Hull's Mini Album die (Sizzix 658982) from mat 
board and the album pages were cut using the same die and the
RENDЯ Paper.
Each of the pages and the album cover itself have been painted in exactly the same
way.  I used a brayer to apply the paint - first I used the PaperArtsy Stone, then 
the Glass Blue and finally the Blue Oyster.  The three colours give wonderful 
coverage.  As you can see above, there is no leakage onto the other side of 
the RENDЯ Paper.  However, since I wanted both sides to look the same, each 
page was painted in the same way on each side.
Here are some of the finished inside pages.  I did cut some more sets of pages so 
that I could create some pockets and smaller pages.
To cut the flowers, I used Eileen Hull's new Romance Flower die (Sizzix 661110) and the RENDЯ Paper. The flowers were coloured in Distress Spray Stain 
(Tumbled Glass) and the edges were painted with DecoArt Media Fluid 
Acrylic in Titanium White.
To finish off the project I used some Tim Holtz die cuts that were left over from another project (come back next week if you want to see that one).
To finish off, I added some Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs and put the album together, with 
some red elastic bands.  I love this method of constructing the album as it gives you the opportunity to add more pages as and when you need them.

Thanks so much for looking, I hope you will come back next week to see another 
Eileen Hull project and also visit Eileen's blog to see what my teamies have made too.

Hugs, Anne xx


  1. Wow Anne, this is gorgeous!! I love the water effect you have created for your background, so cool and refreshing! Your seahorses are just wonderful, the texture on those guys is amazing. I think my favourite bit is the starfish, boy it just pops right off the cover, love love love that contrast! Just like a real underwater scene, alive with colour and motion. Well done my friend! hugs :)
