Photo Fun


Oval Accordion 03

It’s challenge time for Karen Burniston’s Design Challenge team and this month’s challenge is photos on Accordion dies!  I chose pictures from a very trip to Universal Studios and kept my Oval Accordion neutral in Basic Gray and Smokey Slate so I could add lots of fun colors and accents.

To begin my album I embossed Smokey Slate with one of Karen’s new embossing folders, added my Basic Gray strip across the middle and then die cut all the Oval Accordion Album pages.  On the front I added lots of stars, arrows and ribbons.

Can you see the lines of stars going from page to page?  Those are little stars glued to fishing line!

I tied Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry ribbon in the folds and added bits of Bermuda Bay ribbon to that.

The talk bubble in this photo was actually in the picture – it just didn’t fit – so I fussy cut it and added it to the top.  (One of those “I can make it fit” moments!)  I backed all the accordions with Basic Gray.
