A notebook

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blogpost for UmWow Studio, where I am sharing a little book with you. I have recently rediscovered my love of making little books and I couldn't resist to make one for today's post.

This little book was made out of 1 sheet of 12' x 12' paper and I glued some fabric on the outside to give it even more interest and also keep it together. 

Here's what I did to the chipboard:

I started with 2 layers of gesso. 

Next I heat embossed the pod-bit of the chipboard. 

Next I am used a Pitt Big Brush Marker by Faber Castell to colour the top and the stem. 

I added some white details too. 

And here is the finished booklet:

I used an Um Wow Studio stencil and some modelling paste for the front of the book. When the paste was still wet I added som embossing powder and then heated it... 

I have used this Chipboard:

It is called Poppy Pod Skellie and you will find it HERE

I also used this stencil :

This is called Wheat Stencil and you will find it HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !
