Hi there! It's 6pm and I'm already home from work. Oh wow!! I had to leave office early today to collect my car from the service centre. Feels great to come home when the sun is still up and the traffic isn't so bad.
Anyway, here is a round accordion journal that I did few weeks ago. I didn't really want to blog about it cos I think its quite disastrous...lol! Anyway, since there is no right or wrong in art; I decided to blog about it anyway. Ok, let's walk through the making of this journal...
I have used a round accordion journal made of Kraft paper and I can't remember who the manufacturer is. My bad. Comes with a round metal canister to store. Pretty neat. I have layered a Bazzil Basics pp onto each round panel and distress with Ranger's Distress inks. Next, spray, spray, spray, spray, spray....with Tattered Angels and Colour Wash by Ranger. I've basically soaked the whole journal in them. Oh yeah...and I did splashed gesso over several pages...Oh yeah, and a bit of Viva Decor over the edges, flowers, etc.
And, here, below, I have used Martha Stewart White Texture to create on the brick and butterfly stencils by The Crafter's Workshop.
Another pp that I have used here is from Graphic 45.
Ahhh yess... So there it is above, the metal round canister to store the journal. I applied Ranger's alcohol inks onto the surface and when dried, I applied the Martha Stweart white texture on Prima's flower motifs stencil on the cover. When dried, I applied distress inks onto the flower images with distress inks. Lastly, add the metal handle to the cover-bought that from Nagoya Textiles when my mother went shopping for her curtains!
Thanks for stopping by! Ciao!
