When I opened up my box of fun and saw this camera with a star cut out,
I knew IMMEDIATELY what I wanted to do with it!

I'm a total Instagram nerd and am planning to put my
favorite Instagram'ed photos of the year into this little cutie pie.
Wanna make it?
Yay cloud!!

What ya need:
Inka Gold metallic rub in Silver
Black & White paint pens
Mod Podge
Glitter card stock
Cameo or other die cutter
Heat gun, paint brush, scissors
Black acrylic paint
Black Staz On ink
Black Stickles

What to do:
1. Use Mod Podge and cover the covers (both sides) with the tissue paper found in the Frog Dog kit. Let dry or dry with heat tool.
2. Get the Liquitex inks out and slap them onto the album covers. Really make a mess! Have fun! let dry.
3. Once the inks are dry, paint the entire thing with gesso, wiping it in places with a paper towel. Let dry.
4. Scribble on the covers with Gelatos. Blend them using your fingers.

5. Once the Gelatos are blended, get those inks out again. Drop them onto the surfaces and blend with paper towel. 

6.  Paint the inside edges of the star cut out with black acrylic paint, rubbing some paint around the edges on the front cover. Let dry.
7. Stick your finger into the Inka Gold and rub it onto the cover, mostly on the left side of the star. Rub it in good, and then take a clean soft cloth and buff it.

8. Use the paint pens and doodle around the star cut out on the front cover. Doodle away!

9. Using the black paint marker, doodle around the edges of all four surfaces.

10. Stamp the Chevron stamp onto the front cover using black Staz On ink.
11. Cut out the title. The black is vinyl and the red is glitter card stock. Now you're done! I'll be cutting pages from kraft card stock to place my photos on.
