I decided to alter a note book that I found at a local craft store months ago which has been sitting on my desk waiting for my attention. The note book was sitting all alone in a reduced bin for $2 waiting for me to come along and adopt it. I wanted a little book I could jot down ideas for sketches or projects to keep me organised and inspired when feeling a little lacking in the old mojo. However, Mr Mojo had gone walkies and I almost didn't finish altering my notebook in time for the challenge.
I covered the book with MME papers "Good Day Sunshine" and gave the raw edges a coat of 'vanilla' acrylic paint. The lace and ribbons on the binding are just little short bits I had left over from other projects that I couldn't bear to throw out, they came in handy afterall! I raided my button collection for some cute little buttons and tied on some string. The little frame that Tilda is sitting on is just some heavy board that I cut with nesties and painted, distress inked and glittered. There is some cheesecloth and a paper doily too. The glitter heart is by Melissa Francis.
On the inside cover I have made a little envelope to collect little bits and pieces. You can also see the detail of the gorgeous paper a little better :)
I hope you have time to join our challenge this week! Tickled Pink Stamps are sponsoring the challenge with a fantastic prize of Fishing Tilda and the Easter issue of Magnolia Ink Magazine.
I would like to enter my notebook into these challenges:
