Take Notes

I would like  to share with you a small( 11x11cm) notebook, which cover I have altered.
The cover is made from faux leather and it is the first time I have worked with such material and have to admit all went nice and easy.

I take off the cover and primed all with gesso. I added some texture paste through the stencil.

I started colouring with various Distress Inks. 

Next I gave it a coat of  Deco Art Crackle Glaze to make the background more interesting.

In the meantime I coloured some pieces of  lace ( also with Distress).

 To finish my project off I added some scripture stamping, lace pieces and chipboard dragonfly which I have hot embossed.

This is a second makeover of this cardboard box.
The first one was damaged during my moving.
I glued some kind of mesh to the whole background and  also stenciled some gesso. 
The frame was made from cardboard.
There were  some crumpled paper pieces mixed up with texture paste added. 
To finish off my project I made a composition of flowers, chipboard and pieces of gauze. 
I have coloured the whole piece with gelatos, Dylusion ink sprays and silver metal gloss paint. The text stamp was used too.

Dare to Fly

Today it is time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday
 Little things mean a lot is our new theme.

Make something that measures no more than 4 inches (10.16cms) square,
it doesn't have to be square, but would have to fit into the square shape.
It would be a good idea to show a ruler measuring the piece in the photo. 

                                           Pop this on your blog to find us fast!

My take on the theme is an altered cardboard  box. 
I put some lettering ,,dare to fly'' there and don't know why it is so blurry ( only in the picture). ☺

Found Objects

The current topic at Paper Artsy blog is FOUND OBJECTS and I would like to join in with the object I recently found in an old book. 
Believe it or not-  it is over 20 years old dried flower I got from my deceased husband.
I used to dry the flowers he gave me. 
Lots of wonderful and touching memories.

I started preparing the background with my latest faves- ecolines.

Then I used white texture past with the stencil.

I stamped a frame around my piece and attached the flower with mat heavy gel medium.

Then it was time for another found object- the back of the old calendar.

I painted it with Dylusions melted chocolate paint, stamped with Archival Ink and rubbed some Inka Gold copper metal paint.

I finish off my piece adding some crackle glaze on the edges, a metal heart and a chipboard word- memories.
Hope you like it!
