Gone Junkin' Mini Album for JBS October

I made this using Jenni's project kit. Hey, look how my shirt matches the My Mind's Eye striped paper! Only a scrapbooker could get so happy about something like that : ) But I do admit telling myself to wear something with fall colors that day! Anyway, this kit is sooo cool. You can use the album horizontal or vertical. I chose to distress the cover or mine but I thought it would look so pretty painted solid cream too. I painted my cover black and brown then sanded it off, then used a brayer to paint dark yellow then light gray. I used a brayer because I didn't want to lose those dark wood grain lines I had made with the black/brown paint. But since they were a little too bold I used some mist and metallic spray paint to soften them a bit. If you would like to read more about it, click here, to visit my gallery. And check out the other designers' galleries if you haven't yet (but I know you probably have if you're reading here) - so inspiring!

Other JBS products I used but aren't included in the kit are: black doilies, lace stamp, & the label stamp set.
