For years now, I've kept a crafty notebook, to scribble down ideas, sketch designs and list any forthcoming DT challenges so I can mull over ideas for them. Until recently I have always altered my current notebook before starting to use it, but I started my current one in January this year and somehow still hadn't got around to it.
But today I have my granddaughter for the day and as it is pouring with rain and we can't go out, she wanted to spend the day trying out all - ALL - my rubber stamps and inkpads. And while I was lifting them all out, I thought I would have a good old play as well. So I picked out a selection of stamps - some favourites, a few that had never seen ink, and raided the snippets box for a bundle of snippets in various green/orange/yellow shades.
I covered the front of my notebook with black paper, then stamped an assortment of images onto various sized rectangles of card. I inked and the edges of each panel, and overstamped some of them with distress effect stamps - yes, even those fingerprints are stamped, not real. Then I arranged them all on the cover, moving them around until I was pleased with the arrangement. Then I stuck them in place and added a few Wink of Stella highlights.
Finally I stamped the Dylusions sentiment, that describes perfectly how I feel when I am crafting - and especially how I felt while I was making this!
