I made two little accordion fold booklets to post to Manon's Paper Saturdays, both painted randomly with watercolour front and back so that each side can be used for drawing or stamping.
They are only small - 6 inches high by 16.5 inches - cut from a single sheet of paper. I found these were the hardest things I've ever tried to photograph for a blog post, but I did my best!
This is what they look like from above when they are folded out.
I wanted to make them just a little different from the usual by angling the top edge of each 'page' on a slant.
Very simple to make, but I like this kind of booklet, and it's easily slipped into a pocket or bag along with a pen when going out, just in case there's something to sketch.
The next picture is a card I made and sent to my friend Karen a few weeks ago. I hope she does't mind me showing it here, but I was really happy with the result.
The cow was a cut-out, and I decorated it with collaged hat, scarf and ribbon bow, and painted her 'toenails' red. The yellow dots were added with a pen, and the cow collaged on to my own painted and textured background.
Last week I made a mess of trying to link up to Manon's Paper Saturday, and found I had posted the link as a new post on my own blog, which I had to delete quickly. I hope I can manage to do it successfully this week.
