So, I decided on a little notebook.
The covers are made of grungeboard, which was inked with wild honey distress ink, embossed with a cuttlebug folder, and reinked with forest moss distress ink to highlight the embossing. On the side near the coils, two of Tim’s on the edge border dies. The brown one was inked with walnut stain distress ink and embossed with the same color of distress embossing powder. The green border was inked with peeled paint distress ink, over stamped with a flourish then embossed with clear embossing powder.
The little bird is from Tim’s caged bird die, and it was inked and embossed, though I can’t remember what color I used. I added some peeled paint stickles to its wings. His crown of feathers is a piece of foliage idealogy that I cut up and rearranged, and attached with a brad (which cleverly forms the eye).
The charm hanging off the book is one of Tim’s, and I inked it and embossed it with peeled paint.
Inside the book are pages cut from Tim’s retro grunge paper stack:
By the way, the plastic containers the various color groups are in are also something recycled. My beloved biscotti come in them, and I’ve been saving them not knowing what I’d use them for.Speaking of bobbins, many of my ribbons had this plastic at the core. It is two parts that snap together. I saved them because they look like something I can use, but I have no idea for what. If any of you have any thoughts on this, please let me know:
