Stay playful

 Hello everyone, 

It's Tuesday, so that means a new project for AALL & Create. This week I have made a mini book. 

The front of the book.

Pages 1 & 2 

Pages 3 & 4 

Back of the book.

Here's how I made it:

I cut two pieces of paper; one was folded into an accordion and the other was just folded in half. The one in half is going to be the cover of the book. Later I will glue the accordion into the cover. You can get a similar effect book by making a Zine booklet. This is made out of one sheet of A4 paper and has a few more pages. 

I used my small gelli plate to colour the cover. It fits nicely on the A5 AALL & Create stamping block. I put the yellow base on first, then rolled green paint on the plate and laid the stencil on top. After taking the excess paint of with a piece of scrap paper I took off the stencil and printed over the base colour. 

The inside pages were made in the same way but with a different stencil. 

Next I added leaves from this set with black ink and coloured them in with Big Brush Markers. They are permanent when dry. 

Next I added stamping using Versafine Clair inks in colours similar to the backgrounds. 

Next : Washi tape.. just here and there and white splatters.
I used one of Abs' new washi tapes to add a title to the front of the book. 

This lady with the cake on her head gave me the idea for this book. I decided to pair both of them with sentiment from Abs' Wisecrack set. 

All finished, just having to glue it all together. I did add some black lines here and there with a black pen.
