5. Brush a coat of LIQUID LAMINATE over entire album cover. Let dry.
6. Create design with collage pieces and ferns, overlapping in sport. Remove from album, remembering how you prefer the layout. Brush more LIQUID LAMINATE on one section of album and position papers as in your design, coating over with more LIQUID LAMINATE.
7. Add fern in the same way with a base of LIQUID LAMIANTE, the fern, and another topcoat of LIQUID LAMINATE.
8. Print label for brass label holder. Tack label holder in place using tiny dots of DAZZLE-TAC. Apply more dots of DAZZLE-TAC to backs of metal pieces and then place on album. Let everything dry well.
