Tilda Notebook - Post #3!!!

Howdy, y'all! I am back again! I am so excited about how this project turned out, I just had to post it tonight!

I made this journal for my Etsy Store. I saw these cute little notebooks at Target and decided to alter it!
I used some Basic Grey Kioshi DP along with some PTI cardstock. The sentiment is from a SU alphabet set. I sanded and painted the covers, layered the DP on top and then embellished it. I finished it off with several coats of Modge Podge to seal everything on tight! I finished it off by adding tons of ribbon to the spine. Here is a sideview - it measures about 3.5 x 5 inches. It is the perfect size to slip in your purse or keep in your car for those quick notes we all need to jot down!

Here is a peek inside. I sanded, painted and covered the inside panels too. The inside covers are the same and the back of the journal matches the front DP.

Thanks for stopping by again!

Supplies:

Stamps - Tilda with Letter, Sentiment (SU)

Ink - Copics, MM Paint, Memento

Paper - PTI cardstock, Basic Grey Kioshi DP

Accessories - Sandpaper, Nestabilities, CB embossing folder, Prima Flowers, Bling, Ribbon (misc), Modge Podge, Notebook (Target)

FABULOUS project. Love the colors you have chosen. Clever idea to mod podge it, makes it extra sturdy!!
I wish we had Target in Canada...they tell us it will be another 10 years at least because of all the red tape.
