Rita and Annie. They shared a link to a tutorial on this technique and I simply had to give it a go.
This little notebook started life as a cheap little notebook with an ugly cover (well to my eyes anyway). Of course being me I forgot to take a "before" photo, but here is a picture of the inside covers, that will give you an idea of what the outside looked like:
I made a front and back panel and a separate piece for the spine.
Here are some close ups:
Of course I had to cover the inside covers too, so this is what they now look like
The paper inside the notebook is dead thin, so it can't really be used for journaling, but as I will have to take a lot of notes for work in the next few days, I needed a note book anyway, and this will be a lot more fun to use than your ordinary shop bought note book.
HERE is a link to the original tutorial, in case you want to give it a go yourself.
Thanks for visiting like always and I hope you will make some time for creativity yourself!
