Fly away Butterfly...

Sometimes there are songs that touch you, that make you think, that dear daughter loves...This mini album was based on a song by Miley Cirrus called Fly Away. I wrote the lyrics on the first page and I really hope my daughter follows her dreams and makes all her wishes come true...

This mini was made using Maya Road canvas album and flowers, Divine Design Vintage Garden paper kit, Prima felt branch and chipboard, Tim Holtz alcohol inks, Websters pagers bloomers from the DDK June kit, molding paste and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.
Here is what I did:

First, remove the canvas cover then apply molding paste to the inside of the chipboard album and let dry.
Second, Spray canvas cover with Suede, Patina and Lemon grass Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist or TAGMM.
Third, apply Alcohol inks to the Prima chipboards, adhere along with Flowers, Rhinestones and pearls and cut out butterfly.
Fourth, glimmer mist the websters pages blooms with Suede T.A.G.M adhere


Fifth, Glimmer mist the pocket with Patina and Suede T.A.G.M.  Stamp using Staz On and Tim Holtz/Prima Stamps.  Sew on Jennie Bowlin button.  After molding paste is dry (make sure it's really dry) mix about a teaspoon of water and a drop of tea dye distressing ink then brush on the inside of the album.  Stamp and adhere another butterfly...remember this is the main theme.
Sixth, cover your page with Prima Paper, using scrap pieces cut two squares, distresse them and adhere.  Apply some lace after spraying glimmer mist.  Apply the flowers, Tim Holtz swirl and the dollar find metal word after your dab it with tea dye distressing ink.  For the opposite page do the same thing only apply a big flower- I found those flowers at the Fashion District in L.A. I glimmer mist them and distressed them with Tim Holtz inks...
Seventh, cover page with Prima Paper then cut another piece of paper that has flowers.  Adhere.  Paint/distress the chipboard (if you don't have a photo yet just adhere the left side).  Adhere some pearls and butterfly.  On the opposite side just cover with paper.
This page is a little bit more tricky if you never used molding paste.  You got to work fairly fast.  Cover page with Prima paper.  Cut a piece of lace that's slightly bigger than the page.  Apply some molding paste with a brush then add your lace, crunch it...let it dry.  While that page is drying make a small bunch of flowers; I glimmer mist a small bunch of white paper flowers with T.A.G.M in red velvet...
After molding paste is dry...with the help of my embossing gun I sprayed Patina TAGM and tea dye Tim Holtz distressing ink.  Apply pearl strand and distressed metal word.

The pocket was sprayed again with glimmer mist in patina and suede, I then stamped using a Prima stamp and applied a Maya Road velvet flower.
Lastly, distressed the back page with tea dye distressing mixture...

Enjoy!  this was a lot of fun!  I hope you guys make one of this and share it with me...
