Sketched Mini Book

Welcome, today I have a mini accordion, decorated using my A6 Stamp Sketched Happiness #177 from AALLandCreate. All products are available from our Stockists, which you can find HERE.
I love creating miniature projects and today I have a little accordion book. I began by die cutting my book using Eileen Hull's Needle Book Die from mountboard and I then brayered Dina Wakley Paints onto the background, using Tangerine, Lime, Turquoise and Magenta, applying the layers very lightly to my substrate.
Both the front and back covers were stamped with my quirky flowers from my Sketched Happiness stamp set.
I incorporated an accordion into my book, again adding layers of paint with my brayer. I added stamping using VersaFine Clair Ink and then added touches of colour with Gel Pens.
Torn vintage book pages add a touch more interest along with delicate splatters of white paint.
I also die cut a circle from scrap card and then used the aperture as a stencil, applying Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink over the aperture, giving a further layer of interest.
I love the sentiments on this set and stamped them throughout my accordion.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. Tracy x x
