I am sharing with you an altered notebook using the soon to be available L'Aquarelle range from ULTIMATE CRAFTS.
I love this new range and there is such an array of lovely papers that warrant fussy cutting.
So to start I deconstructed my notebook so that I could just work on my front and back covers. I used the Couture Creations Anna Griffin Acrylic Gesso to seal both the inside and outside of the two covers.
Once dry I sprayed it with some colour sprays that I made using the yellow and pinkish red powders from the Couture Creations Anna Griffin Pigment Powder Set. I used my heat gun to hurry up the drying process because I was being impatient.
Using the Definitons stamp set from the L'Aquarelle range I inked up the stamp with black and stamped over the covers in a few places.
Next using one of the gorgeous Couture Creations Anna Griffin Stencils, Daisy Batik, and some embossing paste added some texture to the outside of the covers. Again I dried it off with my heat gun to hurry the drying process along.
The fussy cutting that I did came from the 6"x6" paper pad. They match in the with the yellows and pinkie reds beautifully. I stamped the fern stamp from the Flowers and Flourishes set on some Battle Fatigue green cardstock from Ultimate Crafts and fussy cut them.
I also added a couple of flowers (Camden Cottage rose deconstructed smaller and Tie Dyed and Jewelled flowers) which I added some ink to to soften the whiteness of them. I also tied died a piece of seam binding with matching colours to add to the finish embellishing. Due to the mixed media products that I used all of the embellishing was adhered with hot glue to ensure that it stayed 'stuck'.
