Funkie Junkie Focus – "Fall Colors" Photo Flip Album

Hello Funkie Junkie fans! Our latest theme is "Fall Colors". I went all in (fall is my favorite season!) and created a flip photo album full of some of my favorite photographs I've taken in seasons past.

The covers and pages I cut out using the new Eileen Hull Field Notes & Specimen Card XL Die. I cut off the binding parts of the journal, punched holes and made it a flip style album.

Standard 4" x 6" photo prints fit perfectly into the album!

Let's take a look at some of the 'how-to' steps…

Step 1 - I used Distress sprays and Mica spray to color sheets of Heavystock Kraft and white heavy mixed media paper for the pages. (I spritzed both sides.) Covers are cut out of Sizzix mat board.

Step 2 - After cutting out the pages, I randomly stamped them with the new Shattered Tim Holtz background stamp. (Love this new stamp!)

Step 3 - The frame on the front is a piece included on the Field Notes die (the Specimen card part!) I covered it with a piece of paper embossed using the 3-D Cracked Texture Fade folder. The vibrant oak leaf was made using an older Tim Holtz 3-D Impresslits folder.

The two leaves on the left are plain white cardstock, cut/embossed with Distress Glazes embossed on top. The two leaves on the right were cut from orange inked paper. I then added the same colors of Glaze on top and embossed. Two different looks!

As a final touch on the leaves, I scribbled Distress Crayon onto them, wet my finger and rubbed the pigment into all the nooks and crannies. I then wiped off most of the crayon.
