More Notebooks


I’m obviously in a notebook frame of mind at the moment so here is another one for you. Inspired by the lovely acetate-covered notebook Wendy had on her blog Paper Therapy a few days ago, I thought I would do my own take with some stamping and painting onto acetate.

I also wanted to try out my fabulous new Shimmerz Paints so I thought that this would be the perfect project.


Details: So I stamped onto the inside of the acetate cover with white Staz-On and then painted over it with some Flashee Fuchsia Blingz Shimmerz paint. The card covers are matted with BasicGrey Euphoria papers and I made the flower and butterflies from the same papers. The flower and butterflies are all painted with Celery Shimmerz and just look at that wonderful sparkle! The button has also been ‘blinged’ with the Flashee Fuchsia Blingz Shimmerz


Materials:
Colouring – Flashee Fuchsia Blingz; Celery Shimmerz
Stamp – Hero Arts
Ink – Staz-On Cotton White
Papers – BasicGrey Papers
Usual Suspects – Paper trimmer; Silicon Glue; Scissors; Double-sided tape
Equipment – Bind-It-All; Wires
Other – Acetate; blank pages; Covers; Embroidery thread; Beads; Butterfly Charm; Button
