April Typewriter Tag

I woke up this morning to a light snow on the ground, freezing rain and all-around unpleasant weather...but determined to THINK SPRING!  I'm working on a big project, but decided to take a little time off to make the April Typewriter tag (after all, it is the middle of the month, so about time, don;t you think?)

Anyway, I broke out every green distress ink pad I had to make the background.  a few drips of water and that part was completed.

Butterflies Accordion Book

My niece Sarah made a wonderful version of the accordion book with lots of butterflies.  She finished it up last week but I kept forgetting to post the pictures.

Unique Individuals Accordion Book

Every Wednesday, Barb from Joggles.com creates a "Mid-Week Muse".  Last Wednesday she made an ATC size accordion book with lots of mixed media techniques (see her video here).  I thought it looked like a fun project and so here's my version.

Unique Individuals Accordion Book - Open

Barb's version was ATC sized (Artist Trading Card - 2 1/2" x 3 1/2") but I made this book larger to accommodate some larger stamps.  Each of the colored panels in my version is 3" x 4 1/4".  I experimented with several of the techniques in the video.
