* Gecko Galz: Mermaid Accordion Booklet


Today is my DT day at Gecko Galz.

The customer challenge theme this month is The Age of Aquarius, so I thought I would make a watery themed project. I decided upon a mermaid accordion booklet; Gecko Galz has the most beautiful mermaid collage sheets!

Here is my booklet:

I used the Bubbles mini paper pack for all the backgrounds throughout the project. The edges of the papers were inked with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.
 The front cover image is one from the Art and Soul collage sheet. I added some gold glitter to the swirls and some gold mesh fabric, along with two die cut flowers and some glitter washi tape.

The back cover has a beautiful sentiment image to which I added some gold mesh fabric and some mulberry paper flowers.

The mermaid pages have die-cut seaweed embellishments cut from distress oxide coloured card along with gold glitter washi and gold mesh fabric. The sentiments are mostly from Charming Words whilst some were typed and printed.
