I have a lot of Maya Road albums, so I decided it was time to start using these. I took a pumpkin album and thought it looked like an upside down tulip flower, so I decided to go ahead and use it as if it was a flower.
First thing I did is added color to the album pages, I used an ink pad and well lets just say my hands ended up the same color too. Once all the ink was dried, I traced one album page on several pages of valentine scrapbook pages I had on hand. I used Quick Snippers to cut out the shape because it allows me to have 6 different design scissors on hand, all housed in one handy tool, it also includes a straight edge as you can see on the photos below, I used the straight edge to cut out around the sides and bottom of the shape, and then all the other design scissors were used to cut the tops, I had to cut these smaller than the page, I needed some of the inked pages to show.
The photo below shows the top page of the album, I decided to use Rowlux film to go on the cover page, I love the transparency of this film but the white didn't work the way I wanted, you could see the cut out areas of the original pumpkin design, so I decided to use pink Rowlux instead and I only used it in the center of the page, I took different scrapbook papers to cover the sides of the front and back , and the pink Rowlux worked better with the rest of the papers and colors used, now I had all my pages done, cut and ready to be put together, I did use Glossy Accents to adhere the Rowlux to the album page.
