Today I have a little 10x10cm altered notebook to share with you.
I started by painting the cover with Studio black gesso.
I used a craft knife to cut an aperture out of a piece of 10x9cm card, then covered it with sticky back aluminium. I cut through the middle of the aperture, corner to corner, then folded back the excess aluminium.
I used various Ten Second Studio tools to add a design to the frame, then covered it with black acrylic paint. I wiped it off fairly quickly, to leave just black paint in the recesses, & give it an aged look.
Next, I cut a piece of card to fit inside the aperture, then sprayed it with pink bubblegum & squeezed orange Dylusion spray. I sponged picked raspberry distress ink through a Dylusion stencil, then layered the card & frame on the front of the notebook.
I stamped the Art Dictionary Words on some white card, inked it with pumice stone distress ink, cut it into pieces as shown, & glued the pieces to the notebook cover.
I spritzed some of the pink bubblegum spray into the air above the notebook, so that some landed on the words with a nice speckled effect.
To finish, I used the sprays to colour some seam binding, then attached a couple of metal beads & tied it around the book. I'm using one end as a bookmark.
I thought this little book would be perfect to take to craft shows, to write notes in, as I watch demonstrations.
Thanks for looking,
