Harley Davidson inspired mini scrapbook for Jim
The metal scrapbooking mini-album I made was for my husband for Valentine's Day 2011. He' a guy's
guy, and we're into riding our Harley Davidson's. So since a lot of motorcycle
gear/accessories have the metal thing going on...I thought making a mini-album
that would reflect the "metal" aspect of our riding hobby would be a cool idea.
I didn't' want it to turn out being a Harley Davidson valentine...so I just ran with the metal theme.
Materials used to make this mini scrapbook were
coasters bought at Michael's dollar bin
a few binder rings/clips
some ribbon I had in my stash
embossing folders and metal foil
grunge patterned scrapbook paper (used the Tim Holtz Vagabond machine to emboss & cut)
various red/pink papers and black and silver acrylic paints
some pebbles and Glossy Accents
assorted bling teardrops
HOT TIP: ES6000 glue is a life-saver...slab it on, especially on metal to painted surfaces, weight it down for about 24 hrs, that sucker isn't going to come unglued in THIS CENTURY!!!
It started out being a "guy" valentine... but then the girlie thing crept up on me...and didn't stop. Even so...he LOVED the Valentine and he now proudly displays my creation on our mantel at home.
I had a great time making this little book. The small size makes the task of making books less daunting and overwhelming. You can work on different pages at different times and you don't feel like you're locked into just one "look". I think the small size of the book frees you up to expand your creativity.
