~Hello Thursday-Halloween Album Cover *Nikki Sivils*~

Good morning!

I finally was able to sit down and finish my Halloween album cover.
I made this Nikki Sivils collage layout a couple months ago with
the intent to make an album cover, but it took me this long
to go buy an actual album LOL
Lately I am finding myself heading back to the original trustworthy
glues and sealants as I have had projects falling apart left and right.
*Very embarrassing*
Mod Podge is always 100% dependable for me...I mean hello
I think my mother even used it! LOL

I love the newer Mod Podge that is Shimmer and Glitter.
You can see I tested a shimmer spot, then decided to go with the
gold glitter, I liked the shimmer but thought the gold would
look better with this projects. I love that it not only glues but
also seals in one coat, no gluing then sealing.
First I coated the whole album in glitter Mod Podge,
then I stuck the collage layout down.

After that I coated the entire project in glitter Mod Podge
and set aside to dry.
You can see the glittery goodness, this gold glitter Mod Podge
is very holographic and it rocks! Yes Mod Podge Rocks! LOL
Of course I used my handy dandy i-rock for the gems, I know they will
be on this cover FOREVER! LOL
I am thinking I will customize all my albums now.

Sorry no chicken pictures this morning
(I know they have been requested and I am working on it.)
Today I am helping a friend move, or rather watching the boys
and hubby help them move LOL
My back has been to bad to help, maybe I can bring a meal~

That's all for me today ♥♥
~Thanks for stopping by and chatting at me~
♥Every day I sot down and read every comment♥
~Have an amazing Thursday~
~See y'all tomorrow~

Love my mod podge, I haven't tried any of the glitter ones. I also love the fact that nothing has to be re-done it holds and looks good.
Great project sweetie.
Take care of yourself, no lifting!

Drayia said...

What a neat way to customize an album plus I am all about anything that sparkles!! I cant wait to try out my i-Rock that I just recieve as a gift from a friend on Need to pick up some batteries and then I am all set to add some bling to all my projects. Thanks for sharing Pinky will have to try Mod Podge, I tend to use Arlene's tack craft glue.

Fantastic album Pinky!!! You have some wicked talent lady!!!

Kelly Sas said...

I am such a chicken (get the hint - tee hee) at trying Mod Podge because my daughter does not like it cuz it never worked for her. I think customizing your own album covers is great and would love to do it.

I have chronic back pain and had a failed back surgery so I feel so bad for anyone suffering from back pain. Please take care of you and your back!

Cute! Love Modge Podge ;)

I made an album cover but didn't seal it up so now some pieces are missing. Definatly using the Modge Podge next time!

Tona said...

Love your album cover. I really like the idea of making custom album covers.

Manhattan Mandie said...

That is so cute! I have used the Modge Podge glue, but not the glitter one....I am going to have to try that one.

Ms. Jen said...

I'm LOVIN that shimmery glittery modge podge! Gotta get me some. I stopped by your friends blog and got myself some of that shimmery glitz too.

HappyExpressions said...

Great album cover! good to know they have glitter mod podge now. TFS!

Nanabells said...

Your Mom probably did use Mod Podge, I did and you appear to be about the same age as my children :-) I love it when a product stays around for a long time. That is so rare nowadays. Seems like you just get excited about a product and they change it or discontinue it - or worse yet, change the packaging so you can't find it!! Happy Halloween.

This is a real fun way to make an album stand out. I love it and think I may just have to do this to a few of my albums.
