As you know the last few weeks have seen little creativity at my hands. Apart from colouring I've not really completed a project. Mainly due to my conditions stopping me from thinking, sitting, walking you get the picture, but over the last few days I've started to feel a bit better, feel a little more able to do things so last night I started to make an ATC concertina book from a kit I bought from Gabrielle from her website Crafty Thoughts. One day I'll make it to an actual class, but for now I had to make do with a postal kit, which was fantastic. It contained all of the elements I needed to make this project apart from the glue, embossing powder and ink, and came with full instructions how to make my book step by step.
So I took my time, followed the instructions and I made this -
The Front cover
The other side
I used Tim Holtz summer Distress inks - picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean, I added glossy accents, crackle accents, ribbon, couple of extra elements like the corners and corrugated card along with the words to the stamped images that came with the kit.
I so enjoyed this - it was great fun to create and to get inky but also to have some direction, something to follow to keep me on track.
I'm really pleased with it and know I'll make some more of these little books. I can imagine making them with different papers and themes, maybe even make them as a gift.
So there you go, what do you think?
Right I've got to get sorted as I'm off to see the doctor to hopefully sort out some new medication based on the recommendations of the consultant. Fingers crossed!
Take care Zo xx
