Hello Dusty FANattics!
Nicole with you today to share with you a fabulous notebook to go along with the November Notebook theme on the Dusty Attic blog.
My notebook cover base was made out of chipboard on which I used the Words of Wisdom stencil with modeling paste. I then used layers upon layers of different mediums like velvet paste, distress stains, paint mists and Dusty in Colour paints.
My inspiration was the create a notebook for various use. It can be an art journal, a diary, a poetry book, etc. That is the reason I chose some inspirational titles from the Dusty Attic line.
This Paisley set has to be one of my top 10 Dusty Attic design. It is my second time using it on a project and it absolutely will go on my wish list again so I can use it again! I covered it with distress stain, then dabbed it with some Dusty Pink and Sugar Plum and then added a little shimmer to it.
I really like how the words of the stencil still show even after multiple layers of paints, mists, etc. After adding each coat of medium, I dabbed the surface with a paper towel to remove any excess and make the white of the molding paste show through. When it came time to add some pink and purple mists, it made the words pop out.
The Boho Feather as well as the Mini Dragonflies were covered with gold velvet paste, glitter paste and shimmer paint. After my notebook complete, I added some adhesive spray and sprinkled some Dress My Craft sequins. I love how it all turned out!
