Altered Notebook

Hiya Peeps,

Can't believe it's Monday again but with this one being another bank holiday, I certainly don't mind. Yesterday set 7 of  the Simply Sassy's landed on my mat, and WOW, they are of a slightly different style to previous sets, but my oh my, they are absolutely fabulous, can't wait to show you, but we have to wait until all the girl's on the DT receive their stamps, so keep your eyes peeled. Today's project for the is something I have been meaning to do for sometime and finally got round to doing it spurred on by the "Winking Student" image available HERE at Funky Kits.


This notebook was red and black to start with.  I painted it with lilac acrylic paint first and then added some of my favourite papers by Websters and away I went.


I have to say she was a dream to colour and I've just noticed she got a splodge of white paint on her knee, lol.  A real proper student!


I love how it turned out.  This book holds all my little colour combo's and a few swatches and oh the instructions for the around the page punches, I guess you could say it's my crafting bible, lol.

A little pocket on the inside to hold my bits and pieces.
