Accordion - Our Little Swimmer {Sean}
















I made this accordion display for Scrappingville when Shar challenged me to use these mosaics. I had fun making this accordion and used simple techniques to highlight the mosaics. I mounted Bazzill pp on chipboards and started on the accordion. I fashioned some waves and tiles using monochromatically matching bazzill pp. Then I added 3d lacquer to simulate water droplets.

The mosaics - I placed them as frames and lines all where necessary. Added simple words that I cut with sizzix and painted and 3d lacquered again. To make the whole accordion album together, I binded the pages together with raffia string that I bought in Tokyo.

Materials used:
Crystalline Mosaics, Bazzill pp, 8x8 chipboard, sizzix alphas, Raffia string and 3d lacquer.
