Projects for YSS

These are some altered art and mini albums for YSS.
I met my friend, Annissa last week and she was mentioning that she love shaped mini albums but find it tedious to cut and trim the papers to the chipboard album. Then the filing.. so tiring, right?
I feel the same way. But I still wanted the base of my pages to have some papers.
This is what i did. A cheat's way! LOL
See this mini... I am not gonna cut papers according to these gears shape.
So I just painted the sides. And I cut papers to back the centre portion.
Same for this apple album. Can you imagine a few hours of cutting. So I just mists the edges of the album and I cut out papers to mat the photo and some journal space. You can see the red edges, which gives a nice contrasts to the papers.
This album is so quick and easy to do. A gift for my friend who is not into scrapping. But I am using this to convince her. LOL!
Next, YSS sent me this chipboard scallop circles from Scenic Route.
What do I want to do with it since I already have it?
I thought I want to try something really different. Not on scrapbook pages.
I want to do an altered project. Here's the final product. I love it.
I mist the chipboard with Glimmer Mist. Oh.. the mists are soooo lovely. I love the colours.
And I placed the biggest size chipboard on a ribbon spool. I used Baker's Twine to thread thru the chipboards and make them hanging. The final flower (green) is rested on a stack of wooden ribbon spools (YSS sent me these). I embellish with some vintage items from YSS Vintage Shoppe. If you want not check it out.. you should. Tulle, pearls, butterflies... oh... my fav!
And added some wooden mini pegs. I can clip on some message or quote here.
