BVCG - April 2020 Lettering Challenge - Booklet

Created: April 4, 2020

Now that all the days challenges are done, I needed some type of booklet to hold everything... Not that easy when you're working with accordion pages.

All pages are 5.5"w x 4"h and the accordion length is 38.5" plus the tab at the end to attach to the next accordion... on Arches Text Wove paper.

I was playing with double loading with watercolors, which I love doing, but hadn't done for a while... so decided that would be great for this last accordion week. There are no duplicates of combos...

I used a Simply Simmons Chisel edge brush - either a #8 or #10 on Arches Text Wove paper. Shadowed the letters with a graphite pencil and paper stump.

I used mat board for the construction and covered it with a striped Mulberry paper. Not what I had wanted but I pulled the wrong bunch of papers down and it was too hard to do it again for the paper I wanted... so I said c'est la vie.
I put notches in the edge for my binding to stay in place. The accordion pages are removable if I want. Used 4ply waxed red bookbinding thread and just tied knots.

I used a Zutter "Hang It All" clasp. The only problem, they're stiff so hooking the hook wasn't working. So I need to cut away small piece. If you look closely, you can se the hole on the left panel. Live and Learn.

Even with the mistakes I'm pleased with the outcome.
