Shopping ….

I’ve had notebooks sitting in my box of “stuff” for quiet sometime, just waiting patiently to be decorated or something…. to them.  Well today was the day!
With the rose, I have stamped it 3 times onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Using the Aqua Painter, I then picked up bits of colour from Ruby Red and painted the rose.  I then cut 2 of the stamped images where I thought would best suit the flower.  I used dimensionals to create the layers.  I may even add a little Dazzling Diamonds for a bit more of a lift!
On the inside, I’ve covered the top of the notebook with cardstock & DSP.  I’ve randomly stamped 3 images on the pages, using the different flowers & the colours from the front.  I decided not to add any flower on the left side, but instead added a small pocket – Blue Check – which you are able to include your receipts etc.  In the next couple of days, I will do a Tutorial for the cover & instructions relating to the technique I’ve used.
I am going to have to return this set to Jenny this week or she will be thinking she didn’t purchase this set.
