Shabby Chic Mini Album/Clock (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

I started with a Prima Memory Hardware Gatefold Mini Album-Frank Garcia's line, and papers from Dovecraft-Sweet Paris collection, Prima-Debutante collection and 1 sheet by K&Company. I wanted to create a shadowbox on the back portion of the album, so I cut and opening in the back panel, used a wood frame that I dissembled from a pre-made canvas and glued that to the back of the album to make a "shadowbox" area to house the clock. since I dissembled the canvas to use the frame, I cut a piece of chipboard to cover the back portion...and then used all the beautiful papers to cover everything up! (I used my sewing machine to sew around the perimeter of every piece of paper/cardstock used in the mini album-this adds a great extra distressed look) For the pages on the inside, I used two of the 4 page "sections" that came with the mini album. I had to detach those pages, to take half of them away. The pages were in the size of 6.5x6.5 and I wanted them to be 1/2 pages, like the front cover, so I used a craft knife and ruler to cut the remaining pages in half. I only wanted to decorate the two front pages when the album opened to leave plenty of space to add some photos, if desired. I also decorated the back shadow box page and added my clock to that portion. On the large wood word, I used Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in Tattered Rose. For other added texture I used Prima 3D Matte gel and Glitter Glass in Sand color. This Glitter Glass came from Renea's shop. I also used this Glitter Glass and pressed it into the texture paste (where I used the Prima Crackle mask on the cover of the album) when it was still wet to give it a romantic look, and also added it to some of the elements around the album. I wanted the "O" on the wood word to have a playful touch, so I layerd some fun elements, so that it still looks like an "O" at a glance. I think it came out well! There are tons of great RB products I used on this project as well as Prima product from Renea's shop. I will list the products/links used below the pics.
