Feature Friday

*****Join our April Challenge: GET INKY, HERE***** 

Happy Friday Paper Wings Productions fans!!  Erica here with you today for Feature Friday and I am excited to bring you a project I am currently working on using the April Nesting Components Kit!
I decided to create a mini album to hold my 2014 Easter memories!  Today I am sharing the cover of my album since Easter is on Sunday!  I will share the inside pages on my next post!  Now to be totally honest when I opened up myApril Kit I had no idea what I was going to create so I pushed it aside for a couple days.  A few days later I pulled it out again and starting laying everything out and then the wheels in my head started turning and I began cutting, gluing and creating this album!  I think I need to start setting up my camera when I create to show you all my process!  I started with the chipboard pieces that are actually pieces of the packaging in the kit. I cut it down as the base of my album and adhered the muslin fabric included in the kit to the chipboard.  I then took a variety of Lindy's Stamp Gang mists and splattered around my cover and also added some stamping(which ends up getting covered up).  Next I took a few strips of the music note paper and adhered to the cover with mod podge and then added one of the vintage clip art images also included in this kit and tucked one of the Ranger tags that came in the March Nesting Components Kit behind the clip art.  Once it was dry I added the gold trim and the wired bow trim to the side and added a cluster of flowers from the kit.  The tiny gold eggs were created using the stamp set Single Dot Border that comes in the kit.  The circle outline reminded me of Easter eggs so that is what I created using a glassine bag and some glitter.
I inked up the stamp with VersaMark and then stamped onto the glassine bag and used some simple stick which is a very sticky embossing powder when heated.
After I heat the simple stick I added this beautiful glass glitter that is also included in this months kit and then hit it with my heat tool once more to help the glitter set.
 All that is left to do is cut them out and you have glittered Easter eggs ready for any project!  Here is a look at my completed mini album cover and a peek at the inside.
