Inspiration Notebook

Hi everyone,

I made this notebook a few weeks ago to take with me to the Technique Overload class with Tim Holtz so that I would have something to write notes in, and write notes I did!  I had loads of fun making this and am really loving using mists, stencils with paint, and texture stamps at the moment.  I also really love that cute camera stamp from the Dear Lizzie Collection by American Crafts.  The basic method I used was to spray the mists on the covers, let that dry and then used stamps, paints, stencils to create layers and visual interest.  I also used my picket fence distress marker with a crafter’s workshop stencil to create the pale white heart.  I then added some handwritten words and outlined my title using a white gel pen.  I changed the colour of the FabRip by colouring it with my copic markers and then wiped some liquid pearls over it just to tone it down a little and add some shimmer.  Hope you try out some of these types of products for yourself as they are really fun.

Thanks for stopping by.
