I bought a notebook to decorate. I love little notebooks, small thin ones to jot down little notes when on the way. This one is very summery, a sweet little number. Something to keep in my apron pocket when going round the garden.
I may have made it overly complicated... The background is four different colors - Nile green, sand, white and pale blue acrylics, smeared about with a palette knife.
Then I stamped with a harlequin background stamp (pale turq) and twice with a swirly Crafty Individuals stamp, in blue and pink.
Next came the flowers. The stamp CI-226 has pretty flowers but they are laid out in both directions, so you can't really stamp the whole sheet and be done. Instead, I stamped the sheet once on tissue , a second time on pale blue paper, then some individual flowers on a paper which I had painted yellow and pink.
I cut out the individual flowers and arranged them pleasingly. The label was meant to have a title of some sort, but really, what could I write on it that wouldn't sound corny? *Notebook*? Kind of obvious, is it not? Until I can think of something smart I'll just leave it blank.
Entering this into
Crafty Individuals July *mini* challenge.
