A fold booklet

A few days ago I tried out some acrylic printing with handmade foam stamps on an A3 sheet of black paper.  At the time I had no plan on how to use it, but subsequently decided to try out a simple fold structure.

Foam stamps, acrylic and inks


Folding and cutting template - an A3 sheet produced a 4" x 6" booklet
Once folded, the printed area formed the inside 8 pages, but the front and back were the reverse of the sheet and, therefore, blank.  I decorated those pages and added some rose-related quotes on the inside.

I was quite pleased with the outcome, although a slightly thicker paper might have been better - this was 135 gsm.
