Dylusions Accordion Book


As promised last week, I wanted to share some pix from one of the finished projects from my classes with Dyan Reaveley.  I've been working on them for the last week.  These are from the Accordion Book class... I love the bright colors and quirky funky images.. hope you enjoy! My white gel pen got a SERIOUS workout - I think I used almost a whole pen!  Better get another one soon!

This book is 100% Dylusions stamps .... with hand drawn borders... I won't go into details on the how-to's... not fair to Dyan... but I will say... I used TONS of color wash, TONS of the new, awesome distress stains, a black pitt pen, and as I said, a LOT of white gel pen.  Almost all the images were stamped, colored/painted, cut out, and glued down in layers.

I'll be back soon with pix from the mini book class - finished that one up over the weekend.... see you soon!  (oh, and I have some pix of the latest furry addition to our little family.... you're gonna love him!)
