paint my wooden house...

Welcome to the Genuinely Jane Stuios(GJS)/Creative Inspirations Paint(CIP) Blog Hop! If you came from Kimberly's blog then you are in the right place. If not, and you would like to start at the beginning, please head over to the Creative Inspirations Paint Blog Here!

 Before we get to the good stuff, let me give you a little info on each of these two awesome companies:

Genuinely Jane Studios manufactures small and medium size wood mini-albums for mixed media, scrapbooking and altered art in many shapes and sizes. All of the albums are hand made right on site in their Central Missouri facility. In addition to their albums, they also carry other art supplies in their online store.

Creative Inspirations Paint, our other company in this team up manufactures non-toxic, water based, translucent, shimmery paint that can be used for scrapbooking, card making, mixed media, altered art and more. They also carry embossing powders, glitter and UV resin. Using the paints is as simple as "Shake, Open and Play!" The paints are some of the most vivid you will find on the market and made in Washington State.

 All of the designers from both teams have joined together to show you what can be created using the albums and paint! Be sure to check both the Genuinely Jane Studios and Creative Inspirations Paint websites to see all of the wonderful products!

I got this adorable House wood album from Genuinely Jane Studios to work with... How stinkin' cute, huh! I love it!  I also love how sturdy they are! They can handle any mixed media and distressing you want to throw at them! I had so much fun with it!

The album comes with 4 wood pages, but I wanted to make sure there was plenty of room for pictures and journaling, so I added some extra paper pockets in between each wooden page. 

To make the album come together quickly, I chose a line of paper (Basic Grey's Periphery), then pulled the inks and Creative Inspirations Paints that matched those papers. I stuck to those colors through out the whole album, making color choices super simple!

I love that the wood albums let you use mixed media without any warping!  For this page, I used modeling paste to add texture. You just can't do that on paper without getting some crazy warping going on! LOVE!

More pockets! I love mini albums with lots of interaction.. little places to tuck things... so much fun!

Because I chose to add so many extra pockets, I kept all the pages and pockets fairly flat. Any more bulk, and I would have had to buy bigger rings than what actually came with the album. LOL!
