A Mini of Me (blog hop with Genuinely Jane Studios and Linnie BloomsPosted: October 7, 2013
Welcome to the Genuinely Jane Studios(GJS) & Linnie Blooms Blog Hop! If you came from Karen’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 Linnie Blooms Blog. The hop will start today and last until the 11:59 PM EST on Friday the 11th.
If you aren’t familiar with these two fantastic companies, then let me give you some background on them:
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. Find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/genuinelyjanestudios and their website at https://www.genuinelyjanestudios.com
A love of creating has evolved into a studio where the owner, Linda Barutha, teaches mixed media art classes. Linnie Blooms is a local Mukwonago, Wisconsin retail shop that offers craft supplies and art supplies. Fun and creative classes include mixed-media courses, monthly Pinterest classes, sewing classes for kids, crochet, and more. Linnie Blooms also manufacturers their own crafting supplies. Linnie Blooms signature products are the Canvas Mixed Media Shapes & Blanks. These light weight canvas pieces are perfect for any of your crafting projects. Find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/LinnieBlooms and their website at http://lindabarutha.com/
Both the GJS and Linnie Blooms teams have teamed up to share with you the wonderful things you can create with their products. Be sure to check out both the GJS and Linnie Blooms websites for the full line of products!
Here is my creation, which is a little mini album about ME, using the Genuinely Jane Polaroid Album.
I love the sweet little banners from Linnie Blooms I added to my cover, and the Linnie Textures I used as ribbon ties.
I used a Glitz Design transparency, and it created a shadowbox effect I really like. Washi tape is that I needed to embellish the inside cover.
The textures were fun to add behind embellishments, like the UmWowStudio star, and coin.
I kept this lighthearted and quirky….like me.
Texture is my favorite part of creating a mini album, and it was fun with these canvas blanks from Linnie Blooms. THey are also easy to paint and stamp.
I had a great time creating this book, and I hope I inspired you a little, to get messy and create!
