Round accordion journal - This Is Me 2012

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! 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.

Above, I have used corrugated cardboard, splashed it with white texture paint and spray again with Colour Wash and layered with a tulle netting and a paper embellie ( G45); secured with a trinket pin by Tim Holtz. Can you see a small cluster next to it? Well, they are actually tiny screws and washers that I have glued with Glossy Accents and ...spray..spray..spray...spray...

That's the stencil of a butterfly using white texture paint by Martha Stewart. Then I spray, spray, spray....

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!
