Don't miss the start of our two-months long challenge over at SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges.
I have long wanted to create a accordion book with various scraps and gears and it's given the title "Un Fold".
I am a lucky artist to be member in DecoArts outreach program
I have played with DecoArts Media products, they are amazing colors and they dry up within no time.
I have used DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics:
Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide, Yellow Oxide, Quinacridone Gold, English Red Oxide, Quinacridone Burnt Orange, Cobalt Teal Hue, Raw Umber, Paynes Grey.
DecoArt Media Antiquing Cream Patina Green.
DecoArt Media Texture Sand Paste, Matte Medium, Gesso.
DecoArt Metallic Lustre, Brilliant Turquoise.
When everything is glued and ready,
I have started to paint with Gesso.
There are used Tim Holtz dies, photo and stamp. Scraps, old book pages and Stickers.
Andy Skinner Stamps
Archival Ink Jet Black
String, leather and eyelet to close the book.
Then the funny part with all the colors painted with a brush.
It is a pleasure to use DecoArt products and steampunk has a soul and that gives me the chance to get ideas I can try out and get dirty hands.
My accordion book measures 10 x 11 cm.
The paper weighing 250 g / m2 A4 is split down the middle and put together so the length is 60 cm in total.
Front and back are made of cardboard tied in with the same kind of paper as the substance.
Now it's opened on the other side...
It has been an exciting process and I had fun to create this accordion book, I hope you like it.
