GD: Liesbeth Fidder Project #3 Scrap Notebook

"Hi everyone,  Liesbeth here. Sadly it has come to my final post as a PaperArtsy Guest Designer. The time has sure flown by".

Yesterday I promised to show what I made from a piece of beautiful painted paper, a left over from the wall hanging. Now by magic it's a small notebook .. a perfect gift don't you think!

Here's what I did - I stamped the shirt from LynnePerrella Collection 029 onto the left over Smoothy Heavy Weight White Stamping Card and also on a piece of white Shrink Plastic. For both I used Black StazOn Ink to stamp with, then I cut them out. 

I punched a hole at the top of the Shrink Plastic shirt and shrinked it with the heat tool, added a bit of colour with some Archival Inks and FrescoFinish Paint. For the cover and back of the notebook, I did the same "Peeled Paint technique" using petroleum gelly, as I did yesterday for the wall hanging. To make the pages, I stamped the shirt sevaral times onto a thin piece of printer paper, using light inks. I used Adirondack Cloudy Blue, Aqua and Sandal, I cut them out and sponged them a bit with Sandal. Next I punched a hole, added a swivel clasp and a tiny key as shown. I finished the notebook with a bit of Treasure Gold (Sapphire and Brass).

Some details ...and the finished notebook!

I really enjoyed being one of the Guest Designers for PaperArtsy, thanks a lot Leandra, it's been a very huge privilege and a big adventure to use your wonderful products! They are amazing and I hope I can do it again sometime.

Thanks very much to everyone who commented on my posts, I really enjoyed sharing my art with all of you! Hope you liked it. Can't wait to see what the next Guest Designers make!

Leandra Says: I adore the little shrunken shirt charm, another beautiful piece of art filled with textures and depth. It has been OUR pleasure having you as a Guest Designer this semester. Thank you. x

Gillian Says: Super use of the left overs Liesbeth, this would be an ideal last minute gift to have stashed away. Thank you so much for all your creativity, techniques and inspiration this semester, it has been a joy watching you create. x

Another great project Liesbeth. Funny that Lucy should mention bonfires because I thought that this was another fired tin at first. I have really enjoyed your projects. X

What a brilliant way to use that shirt stamp! I have thoroughly enjoyed your lovely projects, Liesbeth. I've been playing with peeled paint today and you're right - it works brilliantly with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints! I hoped to link up my project soon. Julie Ann xxx
