Our November Featured Chef, Alycia Sanders shows us her favorite mini album. We can definitely see why it's her favorite.
This project was created for this last CHA Summer and, is by far, my most favorite mini album that I've EVER done!
I was given the new Brass Knuckles line and the arrow shaped album to work with and at first, even though the paper is super cool, I thought, "what am I going to do with this?" And I thought and I thought and I thought...and then I eventually came up with the idea to do a tribute sort of album and include info of all my favorite classic rock bands...Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Who, The Eagles, Johnny Cash, CCR, you know...the good ones. But then, as I was creating my Candy Land sample, I was so inspired by the paper (because it's so reminiscant of the Beatles' psychadelic era...Sgt. Peppers, Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine. etc) that I decided to do dedicate all the pages in my album to them. And so I did. Using Brass Knuckles, Candy Land and loads of other Rusty Pickle products I created this super fun, whimsy and some what psychadelic album that I really, really *love*. I heart the Beatles-Paul is my favorite.
The pages are full of mostly bits of song lyrics, some quotes and then some interesting facts about the group. And do you want to know what the funnest part of making this album was? That I was jamming out to their music the whole time I was working on it. *BLISS*
And you know what else? There's even a blue meanie which, is on my favorite part of the entire album (aside from the cover). This was an acrylic page that I painted and I love that the blue sky and clouds are a part of BOTH sides and work so well with both layouts. I got the blue meanie and yellow submarine off of the internet, printed them on photo paper and added them to the album.
