Beauty And Grace Accordion Fold ATC Booklet

Hello everyone, hope this finds you all well.  I have a little ATC sized accordion fold booklet to share with you today that has been many, many, many! months in the making.

It's one of those projects that you work on and then set aside and work on ....  and finally I have completed it LOL!

I started out with an experimental design for another project, using ATC sized pieces of cardstock and sandwiching a length of fibre between them to form an accordion style booklet.

I painted the cardstock, front and back, with a slip slap of taupe and white acrylic paints.

The backgrounds were then completed with a variety of techniques, mostly using Tim Holtz's layering stencils and various mediums: Distress Crayons, Distress Paint, embossing powders and Prima Finnabair Patina Effect pastes.


The backsides were similarly finished with tape transfers, Distress Crayons, Scribble Sticks and Deco Foil foil transfer sheets.

I then embellished the ATC's with elements from my stash in an endeavour to make a slight dent in the myriad of bits and bobs that I've squirreled away and added phrases from Tim Holtz's Clippings Stickers.  Here are the completed 'pages' in my accordion booklet.
