Night and Day - Neil Walker


Welcome to a new week here on the blog.

This week we are featuring the same project but in two 
different colours.  As you can see below the same image can 
look so different when coloured in light and then dark.
So our theme this week is night and day.

Today we start with Neil and his night and day accordion book.

I love how the same design can look so different just by changing
 your colours.

I've made a simple accordion book; one side for day and the
 other for night.

Begin by stamping and heat embossing your image onto a light
 and a dark base with black embossing powder. Glue onto Tando
 Creative Media Boards and trim the edges.

For my day image I've coloured with bright and cheerful tones
 using Distress Markers and a blending brush filled with water.

For my Night image, which was embossed onto a black paint
 spattered card, I have used DecoArt Interference paints
 to add a subtle colour and shimmer.

Construct an accordion for the inside and glue to the covers.

Paint the night side of the pages with Prussian Blue and the day
 pages with a pale wash of the same.

Thank you Neil, I love that image!

If you would like to have a go, this is what
Neil used.....
