Ever since Katie Jane posted about making a house accordian book on her blog I've been wanting to make one myself. At last I began. The house shapes are cut from used file folders.
The rooms are decorated from my scrap box. Here, bubble wrap dipped in beeswax, an old photo sanded, writing from an old ledger, rice paper. None of these rooms are finished. I will add more collage materials and acrylic paint.
No idea how I made the background paper here, just found it in my box. Photo is of an old tintype culled from a magazine, the two toned brown border is a piece of that paper you use to wrap trees. My dad had two rolls of it in the workshop.
Map of the Pere-Lachaise cemetery from a 1920's Baedeker guide. The pages are tied together with linen thread.
In this room are papers from an Asian newspaper decorated by Joss and sent to me for the exchange a group of us did of packages of material scraps etc. She also sent me the ribbon.
I also completed a page for Kelly in the Artshine Traveling Journal project. See it and other pages in other journals in the project here.
