one thing i love about maya road are their chipboard albums. they are extremely versatile and fun to use, not only as albums, but also as other altered projects. for the tots project this week i used this large flower album. it had six “pages” with a pre-punched hole. i chose not to use it as an album, but as a decoration in my daughter’s room.
my little girl loves to paint, so i turned over some purple acrylic paint and a paint brush and she thoroughly enjoyed herself. even my son came in from playing baseball to help her out (secretly he loves painting too!)once we painted both sides and let them dry i let her use the Tombow MONO Glue Pen to adhere small white clips.i hung the new flower “clipboards” on the wall in her room. now she can add art work or pictures to decorate with.
to step the end result up a little (maybe more for the adult than the tot) i took the liberty of adding a few embellishments and some pattern paper to a couple of the flowers. too many pretty purple papers…i couldn’t not use them!
