Comfortable in her own skin

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my GDT post for AALL & Create. I have decorated a notebook this week and this is it:

And here's how:

I gelli printed a piece of paper and used this stencil to add some interest. 

Next, I got a plain note book from my stash and added some Dina Wakley washi tape over the spine. I used extra glue to make sure it stays put. I then cut the gel print to size and adhered it to the cover of the note book. 

When that had dried, I started adding interest with these two stamp sets. I stayed in the same-ish colours and added some black too. 

Here's a better view of some of the stamping. 

I also added some modelling paste with the same stencil and then stamped this beautiful girl on a piece of tissue paper. I planned to stamp her again on card stock and colour her but the tissue paper stayed fairly white so after I had made the edges disappear I decided to colour the image straight on the book. I used my Faber Castell Big Brush Markers for this. These are great as you can move the colour while wet but it is permanent when dry. 

And this is it ! I added part of the sentiment from the stamp set. 

Here she is again... 

I have used the following stamps :
#175 - her own skin by Kaitlin Paltridge
#23 - by Bipasha BK
#134 - Dot Matrix by Louise Nelson
Stencil #59 Weathered tiles by Autour de Maw
