The Craft Barn Mini Album

Here's my entry for The Craft Barn's latest challenge - 9 sketches to create a mini album. All the photos are of flowers in my garden this spring (except for the snowdrops) and I tried to keep it bright and cheerful!

I'm not sure the photos do the colours justice but I hope you like it. It's great to use the photos rather than leave them loitering on the computer where no-one sees them!

Here is what I used:
Colours are Distress Inks and Adirondack Dimensional Acrylics
Stamps are Oak House Studio, 7gypsies and Elusive Images
Embellies are Bazzill Just the Edge, Graphic 45 Botanicabella Tags, assorted flowers and gems

Thanks to The Craft Barn for this challenge. If you're tempted to have a go, the deadline for entries is not till May 15th so check out their website.


  1. Elaine, your album is beautiful!! I love flowers/gardens etc... and I miss seeing those in March (we're just starting to see tulips here in Canada). Great job on the sketches.
