Hello Sin City Stampers, and welcome back to our blog. Barbara Rankin here today with Part 2 of my mini album project. But first, I want to let you know that, in case you have not heard, Sin City Scraps is now Sin City Stamps. In addition to the new name, I hope you will check out the new stamps, stamp plates, and other fabulous products they sell in their online store. You will love what they have to offer.

I just acquired some of the new Distress Paints, so I wanted to give them a try. I used bundled sage and broken china to marbleize my two manila tags located inside the front and back covers.
Simply swipe the dabber across the tag, then make two puddles on your craft sheet, spritz both the tag and puddles with water, and let the colors run. Swipe the wet tag through the puddles to marbleize even more.

I cut six tag shapes 3" x 4" to fit inside the library pockets, then trimmed the top corners with corner edger scissors. I left them blank so I can add bits and pieces of ephemera, quotations, and anything else I want to put on them.
