Ezee Pzee product reveal for June

The Dezign Team was given the absolute best collection of Ezee Pzee products for this month's reveal. I had such a great time working with the frames and embellishments that I'm actually sad that the project is done. So, here is what the team received:
We were encouraged to create a canvas - something that we could hang on our wall with pride - so I purchased a couple of art canvases at Michaels (on sale!) and got to work. My plan was to combine a central canvas with smaller framed pieces around it. 

I created the first canvas by painting it with a flat yellow paint. I then layered patterned paper (from Bo Bunny), stickers, and other embellishments to create a collage of sorts. The central Ezee Pzee frame is covered with paper and then I added Basic Grey rub-ons for extra pattern.

So, my first piece was done but it didn't want to be hung on the wall - it really, really wanted to be the cover of a mini album. Well, I wasn't about to argue with the creative muse since she has been absent so many times in the past. I decided to use the two canvases as the front & back of a mini album, with the interior pages nesting inside. This is what it looks like from the side:

I created a series of pages and attached them accordian style using twine:
Open album (inside)

Open album (outside)

I used Bo Bunny papers and stickers throughout the pages, along with Ezee Pzee frames and embellishments. The most elaborate pages are inset into the front and back covers of the album:

First page, inset into front cover

Last page, inset into back cover

The interior pages are a mix of simple (for larger photos) and somewhat elaborate (for small photos or decoration).

Key to heart page: I painted & distressed an Ezee Pzee heart and then overlaid it on a painted Ezee Pzee key. The swirls on the bottom of the key are Basic Grey rub-ons. For the page itself I used some scrap cardboard (I tore the outside layer off to reveal the corrugation, then inked and distressed it).

Birdcage page: The birdcage is cut from a Tim Holtz die and is painted and popped up in the middle to give dimension. The bird and branch are both Ezee Pzee. I love when I can mix & match embellishments from different designers!

Butterfly page: This is my favourite page because it is so subtle. I misted the Ezee Pzee birdcage and butterfly wth a mix of green, terra cotta and pearl mists. I used the same twine to create the bow on the cage as I used to attach the pages in the album. The border strip and small journalling spot are both Bo Bunny stickers.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and looking at my latest Ezee Pzee Dezign project. I encourage you to check out what the rest of the team did with the materials (trust me, you won't be disappointed because these ladies totally rock!).
