DIY Shabby Chic Corset Album Design Team Project Share by ~ Kim Murray

     Hi Y'all,
          This week I wanted to share with you some wonderful papers and stickers I got for my design team package from Tammy.  I received 24 sheets of 12x12 decorated sheets, 1 12x12 sheet of coordinating stickers and she also gave me a adorable journal that goes with Bo Bunny's "Gabrielle", collection and a package of G45 Mini Bubble tags.  These papers are so beautiful with lots of abilities to make different projects featuring different Genres.
           My sister is getting married soon and I have been brainstorming trying to come up with ideas of what I could give her as a Bridal Shower gift, so I thought that with my chipboard corset album, assortment of paper flowers, chipboard and wooden embellies, some ephemera from my collection and my gorgeous papers from Tammy's store I was ready to go. 
          I began by painting all the chipboard pages with a coat of gesso, I traced the images on to different pages of the decorated papers and then tried to match them up by color page to page so that your eyes could flow easily from page to page. 
          I then glued the papers to the chipboard pages in order and then used some matching distress inks around the edges to give the side of the pages to make the pages pop a little. 
          After this point I began to play with all my flower and other embellies and glued them to the pages. Then I distressed all my painted my tags on the larger ones I used the scraps of paper I had left from the pages I cut the corset from, stamped them and added some seam binding ribbons to them and with my paper ephemera I distressed them with Tim Holtz paper distresser to give it that "old torn" look and then used coordinating distress inks on the sides.
          Finally I glued on my wood embellies and flowers, used my memory keeper hole/eyelet punch and added them to the left hand corner of each page, threaded some stretchy string and then tied on a variety of seam binding ribbons.  For the last touches, I added a tag I made from the G45 Mini Bubble tags that I really embellished a lot, lol and then added that on with a wooden clothes pin, but I felt there was still something missing, so I added on some beads from an old broken necklace.
          I hope you will love this as much as I do, I am going to have this for sale on eBay, as I found out the colors of her wedding were dark purple and orange, oops, lol. Her loss but your gain:)
