Wasabi Notebook...


I played around with the Dynamic Duos colour combo and the Stamping 411 sketch last night...

I wanted to make a covered notebook (love making these!) as I still have some of my 10p notebooks I picked up at a bargain store. I used black and vanilla as my neutral colours and ended up loving what I came up with!!

I made a cover for the notebook with Basic Black card, rounding the corners and lining the inside with some First Edition dsp. The Wild Wasabi piece layered on the front was stamped with one of the flowers from Mixed Bunch then sponged with Wild Wasabi ink around the edges. The strip of dsp is from Holly Berry Bouquet (Wild Wasabi with a vanilla print). The focal piece from Apothecary Art was stamped with Stazon on Confetti Cream and coloured with an aqua painter and inkpads. I trimmed this label with my paper snips and layered it on a die-cut black label. The 'notes' letters were cut from black card using the Timeless Type alphabet dies, adhered to the label then covered with Crystal Effects to make them really pop. I couldn't resist adding some Pumpkin Pie butterflies, with some brads in their centre (the largest buttefly has a filigree brad with an antique brad through the middle). I finished things off with some faux stitching with my black marker.

Here's a shot showing the notebook in the middle:

Thanis for stopping by!
