Genuinely Jane Studios(GJS)/Creative Inspiration Paints(CIP)- BLOG HOP

 CLICK HERE for the  DL.ART Thankful Thursday #110 challenge SPLASH ending June 4, 2013

Good Morning friends,

 Welcome to the Genuinely Jane Studios GJS)/Creative Inspirations Paint(CIP) Blog Hop! If you came from Emily's blog then you are in the right place. If not, and you would like to start at the beginning, please head over to the Creative Inspirations Paint Blog Here!

Before we get to the good stuff, let me give you a little info on each of these two awesome companies:

 Genuinely Jane Studios manufactures small and medium size wood mini-albums for mixed media, scrap-booking and altered art in many shapes and sizes. All of the albums are hand made right on site in their Central Missouri facility. In addition to their albums, they also carry other art supplies in their online store.

 Creative Inspirations Paint, our other company in this team up manufactures non-toxic, water based, translucent, shimmery paint that can be used for scrap-booking  card making, mixed media, altered art and more. They also carry embossing powders, glitter and UV resin. Using the paints is as simple as "Shake, Open and Play!" The paints are some of the most vivid you will find on the market and made in Washington State.

 All of the designers from both teams have joined together to show you what can be created using the albums and paint! Be sure to check both the Genuinely Jane Studios and Creative Inspirations Paint websites to see all of the wonderful products!

 Before I began the album I painted all of the edges in different metallic paints
this one is in antique gold.

The bird is painted with sky blue and pink highlights, I used peach on the flower.

 The edges of this page are in silver

I used antique gold on these flowers

One of these  flowers are trimmed in antique gold. I used pink highlights  mellow yellow and antique gold on the butterfly. I also used jeweled inspirations on the butterfly and the pull down journal-ling tag.For the edging of this page I used gold.

The flowers at the bottom are painted in tan peach and mellow yellow

 I used mellow yellow for the little flower. For the chipboard piece I used pink highlights and mellow yellow I used a PTI stamp from "beautiful blooms" set in black memento tuxedo black ink.

This is the last page and the edging was done in antique silver

This is the box I made for the album to go in. I painted some white ribbon with the chocolate shimmering paint for the lid, to match the bottom of the box. The Battenburg lace is from an file  and so is the box

Here is a video explaining the whole album

  12. Hi, Diane, Your mini album is stunning! I should probably cut into my "Secret Garden Collection", but it always takes me a while. I have to be absolutely certain. Your project is certainly a wonderful presentation of the mini albums. I will check out the other designers. I think you used all the elements on our "Create Your Own Challenge" Chart!

    If you get a chance, please e-mail me at I would like to ask a question about the companies.

  22. Oh Diana... I've been so anxious to get here to leave you a comment. I'm so tickled that we both made albums with the same gorgeous paper collection! I love every page in this beautiful treasure. The shape itself is fantastic, with so many sweet details to adore throughout. All of the painting is incredible (of course), but one of my favorite parts is the sweet banner of the little flower tags. I am crazy about that! :o) Amazing creation, just like everything you post. Although it is impossible for me to get to Blogger every day, I always scroll through to see what I've missed. You are a joy and a delight to all! :o)

    Hugs and blessings!
