You are mixed media mini album

I love paper. But sometimes it's fun to play with other materials, like I did in this mini album. It has paper, cardboard, canvas all wrapped into one mini album with some cute and funny photos of my kids.
The first page is made from corrugated cardboard. On the front I made the two colored background with a Vaseline resist technique. The other side is covered with patterned paper and torn to reveal the corrugated cardboard.

The second page is a canvas with a mask background and a really fine cutting of a flower from a patterned paper. The other side is covered with paper with some funny hand writing.

The next page is also canvas. The canvas side is stamped and misted. I also added some hand cut clouds. The other side is covered with paper with a handmade sun as a focal point.

The last page has a mask and stamping on the canvas side and patterned paper on the other.
