A notebook

I thought it was about time I started making some Christmas gifts so expect to see more in the run up. Passion for ProMarkers set the challenge to use Emerald and Marine and create anything but a card. I also used the sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches.



This was so hard and way out of my comfort zone as the colours are really dark and even with all the shades I have, I found it difficult to find lighter colours to blend with. So I introduced some purple to brighten it up a bit.

I dusted of the Dreamkutz and the Bind it All for this one, haven't used them in such a long time and was fun to get them out again. I used baby pink o-wires and the inside pages are various shades of purples and lilacs. The patterned paper is by Brenda Pinnick and DCWV for the plain ones.

The stamp is by Rachelle Anne Miller - I added some highlights with a white gel pen around the flower petals. The acrylic flowers and brads are from my stash and of course glitter gems - coloured with Peel off pens to get the right shade. I've had this metallic elastic cord in my stash for ages so again nice to use something that's been busy doing nothing. It's secured on the back cover with eyelets.

Back later with more and some exciting news
