Another thing I worked on at the crop on Sunday was finishing up the concertina book I had on my W last W.
I cannot seem to get away from the Que Sera Sera papers by K&CO – I just love the collage look of them, the tones, the patterns, everything about them. I don’t know what I will do when my stack is gone!
I sort of designed the book to be displayed open. and it invites handling (which I think it will hold up to) as the tall thin photos are not easily seen without angling your head a bit, this way and that.
The frame on the cover is stuck only in the corners with foam pads, so the ribbon can slip thru easily, and when open on a shelf, the extra ribbon can just hid behind the open book.
Glad I always rather intended this one for ME as I’m not sure I could stand to give it away!
There is a slideshow-style “video” in the post here and another version that I made then photographed for a Tutorial PDF:
And a final variation here:
