Pencil Note Book

I recently bought some new stamps from Happy Daze

With all the snow we have had today, it was enough to drive anyone stir crazy so  I braved the snow storm and had a play in my studio.

I just couldn't decide what to do once there - so I made a chunky notebook.
The pencils look very 3D in real life.

The rubber stamp is just the right size for a notebook

I stamped it directly onto thick mountboard, then spent quite a long time colouring it.
I coloured the grungeboard lettering with a promarker over copper.
It gives the letters a nice red lustre look to them

The back cover was coloured with all those of the pencils on the front,
then I stamped over it with five Tim Holtz mini stamps.

I used A4 computer paper which I cut up to fit.
It's great as notepaper, and with the mountboard as covers
they make great presents and at a reasonable cost too!
And each one is an original of course!
