There is still a couple of days to enter for my two candy stashes which you'll find here....or click on link in my sidebar. If you are already a follower, you only have to leave a comment on the candy post - what could be easier....though extra entries are available.
The last time I covered a notebook, it was with Winnie-the-Pooh wrapping paper. That was about 12 years or so ago, a little into my Pooh obsession, I was 40 when I 'discovered' the dear little fella lol. I've covered this for the challenge on DZ Doodles and this lovely young lady was a freebie to go along with it...you can still get her here for a few days more I think.
I rarely use gold, it's my usual practice to colour gold stickers with acetate pens, but liked the idea of it for this. I edged everything around with my new gold pro-marker pen (now you know why I went gold all of a sudden don't you lol); and also stencilled a few inspirational words on my backing paper. I considered giving my image a nice gold belt but was afraid of throwing her too far back into the eighties lol.
I coloured my paper lace and the edges of the flowers with a gold shimmer ink pad. The poor rose at the centre looks sadly squashed from the scanner, I know, but rest assured it popped back up again once released.
As I was making a notebook to keep track of my challenges (upgrade on the reporters notebook), I decided to put brown in with the pink, to keep in line with my blog make over.
