Happy New Year!
This is my first blog post of the year and what better a way to start it than with a little altered notebook.. a quick and easy project
The products I have focused on today are Brusho crystal colours and soft form relief paste and the overall look I was going for was that of a washed out shabby chic style.
Step 1 Take a plain hard covered notebook and prepare the surface with a layer of white gesso.
Step 2 add a strip of cotton lade to the binding edge of the book
Step 3 Apply a generous layer of soft form relief paste to the cover of the notebook (a bit like icing a cake) press in a wooden heart and allow to dry naturally.
Step 4 Once the relief paste was dry I used some embossing enamel for additional texture
Step 5 Sprinkle the surface of the book with Brusho and spritz with water until you have the look you desire, using your heat tool to dry the layers as you go along
Step 6 I stamped a sentiment onto the wooden heart with black stazon ink
I hope you enjoyed today's project and i am already looking forward to making my next project, see you in 2 weeks :)
