Retro notebook. By Zuzu.
Last week, I was inspired by this months challenge them of "circles", and had a wee go at making some circle tags. They turned out better than I expected and I rather loved them. I even put them on my blog.(here they are in case you missed them)...
Inspired by this retro look, I wanted to make something a bit more permanent or useful that i could keep, (as once I use the tags as gift tags, they are gone,) so I altered the front of one of the little notebooks.
I used an outdoor sealer over it all so it would stand up to going out and about in my bag, as, with this weather we have been having, nothing stays dry for long.
For the largest circles, I cut out some paper circles and used them as a mask when adding all the layers of stamps, paint and ink, to my notebook. when i was done with the other layers, I painted my large circles with white paint. let it dry then did a little 'over stamping'.
as a finishing touch, I added some "chit chat" stickers.
