I have another concertina book to share! This one was so much fun to create and is basically one long piece of folded Glimmer Misted watercolor paper with the individual panels just a bit larger than ATC size. It is made using stamps from the Jane Austen set from Oxford Impressions.
This is the book untied and first opened:
And here it is all opened up:
The individual panels include a piece of textured paper created by adhering text to cardstock, a gesso wash to mute the text, Cuttlebug embossing, and then green metallic rub-ons to bring out the pattern. Then I stamped the various characters, cut them out and added color in spots with pencils. The real fun was in combining them and choosing Pride and Prejudice quotes for each.
This one had to be Jane and Mr. Bingley:
I chose a line about Kitty for this one:
And I liked this line about poor Mary:
And this just MUST be Lizzy and Darcy - I loved how he's looking down his nose at her!
I had so much fun making this book and re-reading Pride and Prejudice - do you have a favorite Jane Austen novel?
