Another project

This is an ATC accordion book I have made using pictures of Mata Hari ...

folded ...

and stretched out ... the background papers are a cotton rag paper coloured with Adirondack Colour Wash Sprays (I know it's spelled without the U but I just can't bring myself to use this way). They are stamped with  wonderful Paperartsy stamps - including the fine background text stamp, Mini 61, which I love and then over stamped with some swirls using copper Brilliance ink ... text paper has been added to the bottom, and the images and ATC edges are finished off with Derwent Inktense pencil in Bark. I've added some star shaped brads and given her a halo with Liquid pearls - many would say she doesn't deserve a halo - but I love her. The words are computer generated, printed and cut out. 

Here are some close ups with a little more detail ... the light is terrible today despite the snow and my camera flash has washed out some of the rich colour the sprays give.

I do like how this project has turned out and just need to finish the cover.


  1. This is stunning! You really come up with some different and gorgeous work. Those stamps are so cool! xx

  2. Wow, this is fantastic!Beautifully done.

  3. Very very cool - you are 'do'ing well so far this year ;-)
