Artbooking Mini Album Close Up Day 3

I LOVE these pages.  They were the hardest to put together, but I'm the most pleased with the way they turned out.

First I had the pages cut on Gypsy cardstock from the A2 Photo Mat/ and Photo Mat/Shift keys at 8" using RELATIVE DIAL SIZE.

The tiger print overlays are from the  C1 Overlay/Shift key set at 8" using RELATIVE DIAL SIZE.

They each covered one half of the pages.  I added a rectangle of Gypsy cardstock to finish the page.  I also used Silver Shimmer Trim along the outside edge of each page.

The photo mats were both cut out of Silver Glitter paper using the E4 Photo Mat/ Photo Mat/Shift keys at 11" using RELATIVE  DIAL SIZE.  The reason I used 11" instead of 8" is because the photo mats say right in the book that they will hold a 4x6 and 4x4 photo, and the layout it goes with shows it should be cut at 11".  This is why we use the relative dial size.  If I had cut at 8" the photo mats would have been considerably smaller.

Since the photo mats are just outlines, I decided to add white cardstock behind in the even my photos are smaller than the mats.

To finish off, I added Clear Sparkles. They already come in those intricate patterns and are self-adhesive.
