Mini Album Blog Hop

Welcome to a Mini Album Blog Hop!
For this event I made a mini of our duckling.
We only had our little sweet pea a few days, but we enjoyed every minute of it.
~ Little Duck Lost ~
 I decided on a simple mini-album and used cardstock back-to-back for my pages instead of covering chipboard. Craftsmith paper has wonderful texture and patterns and is heavy enough to use mixed media throughout. The Terra Nova paper pad has just the right tones to bring out the emotion in the black and white photos I used.
For this album I added depth with modeling paste and stencils. I also used embossing powder, wood bits, and plenty of washi tape, from Love My Tapes. The print paper doilies are made from an assortment of Kreaxions punches and Circle Cutter.
Because this album was essentially a farewell piece I wanted something special for my photo mats. I picked up an art biography on Monet while out thrifting. The full color photographs of his art work made fitting tribute to the sweet creature we hosted.

Enough about me!
