Decorated Idea book!!

Hi Everyone

As promised yesterday I have another project for you that I’ve been working on recently. Like the notebook I also have paper all over my desk/craft area that I use for planning projects, drawing up card sketches, writing up patterns for projects etc and again I have terrible trouble finding the one I want when I need it. So I took a drawing journal and I decorated it up and that will now be where I write/draw all my crafting idea’s. Here is the idea book I came up with.


I have also made a quick video of both this idea book and the notebook from yesterday

For the idea book I used papers from my scraps bag and sealed them with sparkle mod podge. I added some chipboard letters that I covered with ultrafine glitter and sealed with Anita's 3D clear gloss finish. To cover up the paper join I added some ribbon, trim and sequins, the trim had also been coloured with Glimmer mist. I used a Whiff of Joy stamp for the image and coloured it with my copic markers and to finish the front I added some flowers that I sprayed with either Glimmer mist or Cosmic Shimmer mists and glued on some flat back faux crystals.

I would love to know what you think of the book. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll hopefully be back soon with some more projects for you
