Fab Scraps Beach Comber Mini Album ----> Wall Art

I receive a mini album to create with and I received a wonderful family picture of a friend of mine's family on a holiday to the beach.  I didn't have enough pictures to create a whole album with, and I was playing around with the elements of the album and I came up with an Idea!!  Why not convert the album to a wall piece.  So here is what I did.

I gathered my X-Press IT products and Fab Scraps Beach Comber collection.

Then here is what I did to come up with my idea:

I know it doesn't look like much, but this was my starting point.

I then started by tracing the areas I wanted to cover with denim, cutting out the denim and fraying the edges. 

I then added distress stain and then rubbed some blue metal finish onto the anchor area, then using Triple Tac, adhered the denim to the areas I wanted covered.

I then Used Picket Fence Distress stain on the edges of the other pages, and using Xpress IT 12mm Tape, adhered the Beach Comber paper to the chipboard pages, trimmed the edges and sanded them

I then painted the areas of the centre piece that would show and then using X-press It foam Tape, adhered the four feature pieces onto the centre mounting piece.

Then it was tme to dress it up a little more....

I added some stitching detail.

Added some more Distress Stain to the Fab Scraps Chipboard.

So here is my final creation:

And for some closeups:
