The Accordion Book Giveaway and Other Stuff

I recently made a couple of accordion books and offered one as a giveway to the person who became the 75th person to join or follow my blog. So, Kristin, please send me your snail mail address so I can get this in the mail to you this weekend. Thank you so much. I've been doing a little of this... You can see I used some of this paper already....... These are done on deli paper but some were on the gelli plate and then more paint added after that. I was going for layers. Oh, and I gessoed some of these papers first. And a little of that.. I recently showed you some recycled binders that I cut down and prepped for new journals. Here's one where I ripped the plastic vinyl off of it, cut a couple of inches off the sides to make it not standard binder size, gessoed and painted it. And then I planted my great grandmother's picture on the cover. Her name was Ella and I love this picture of her. I enlarged it at Kinkos and it fit perfectly on the cover. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for taking the time to comment. Your support is very much appreciated.
