For this weeks AALL & Create post I have decorated a notebook.
And here's how:
First I added a strip of cotton on the spine, I used fabric glue to attach it, I then gessoed the book and added yellow and green paint with a brayer. I put the stencil on top and wiped away the paint with a baby wipe. This didn't work great so instead I used white paint and dabbed it through the stencil. I did the same thing on the back.
Here's a close up
Next I used a bunch of stamps to add some interest. I used Distress Oxide inks and Archival ink to stamp.
Next, I stamped this flower and coloured it with my Copic markers.
I found these two words to add, making the book a 'garden journal'.
I added a black mat and glued the flower and the words to the front of the book. I also added some black paint around the edges and some white splatters.
On the back I added a sentiment from Tracy's 'Doodled Blooms' set and that finished the book.
I have used the following AALL & Create materials:
