Each year I alter those $1 albums from Target/Wal-Mart that hold 4x6 photos. I take out the insert and then just decorate it.
My mom loves this gift...and she would never let me hear the end of it, if I didn't give her one each year. The Magistical Memories owl was absolutely perfect for this. Papers, ribbons, gold stickers, and buttons are all products from Harmonie.
I sprayed glimmer mist on the whole chipboard piece. Then I inked the owl. I used a pen to color the branch and his eyes. Here is a closer look before I added the pen detailing to the owl:
I then used a pen to give the owl feathers and to add a little extra around the circular frame. I rubbed a little stickes glittter onto the body of the owl as well. The chipboard owl piece is all raised on pop dots. I folded ribbon under the brown pattern paper for a fun touch.
Here is a picture of it added under the sleeve of the album:
