Inks
Misting Stencils

Instructions:
1) Mist and ink one side of the 4 corrugated cardboards. Let the colours mix by misting with water.

2) Once dry, use a misting stencil to create a pattern on the corrugated cardboard.

3) Adhere PP to the other side of the corrugated board.

4) Use the misting template and mist the pattern over the PP.

Do the same for the other 3 pages.

5) Bind the pages together using the Zutter tool.
6) 6"x10" - Create a border of 1" at the top and the 2 sides. Score 0.5" on the 2 sides of the cardstock. Fold the border into half.

6"x8" - Create a border of 1.5" at the top and the 2 sides. Score 0.5" on the 2 sides of the cardstock. Fold the border into half.
a) Adhere the 2 cardstocks together only at the 0.5" on the 2 sides of the cardstock. The 6"x8" should be in front of the 6"x10" cardstock.

7) Adhere the border cardstocks to the album pages as shown in the photo below.




8) The base of the album is now completed! Go ahead and embellish the pages.
