The best thing about these alterable notebook is the fact they have a durable clear plastic cover - so whatever you create won't be destroyed by wear and tear.
I kept everything 2d this time, but I think next time I might have a go at some 3d elements. First I inked up a piece of plain paper with my 3 favourite Distress inks: Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberries and Mustard Seed- I just love how these colours work so well together. I then added some Seedless Preserve and Ripe Persimmon inked through some of the Tim Holtz stencils: Rays, Bubble and Dot Fade.
I then did some subtle background stamping using Memento London Fog to stamp the Paris memoirs TH stamps, then Black Archival ink to ink the sentiment from Good Thoughts and the hand and script from Typography (both Tim Holtz stamp sets). And finally I flicked some water at the page and dried with a heat tool - easy peasy!
Just hope she likes it :)
