Instructions

Other Supplies: A3 paper, Mod Podge, Assorted acrylic paint, White gesso, White gel pen, Silver elasticated string, Eyelets and Crop-a-dile, Mini notepads, Large button

  1. Take two sheets of white paper and scrunch each one into a ball before opening out again.
  2. Take a length of mountboard which is slightly larger than the area of the journal die. Use Mod Podge to apply the paper to both sides of the mountboard retaining most of the scrunched creases.
  3. Die-cut the journal and apply a coat of white gesso to both sides.
  4. Paint the cover in a shade of pink before using white acrylic with a dry brush technique to enhance the creases.
  5. Die-cut the flower in the centre of a square of stencil film and use the resulting stencil through which to apply different shades of acrylic with a sponge creating the floral pattern.
  6. Outline each of the stencilled flowers using a white gel pen.
  7. Apply silver eyelets through the holes die-cut in the side of the journal.
  8. Secure your chosen notelets by threading elasticated string through the eyelets and tying them in place down the central spine.
  9. Apply a generous coat of Mod Podge to a large plastic button, sprinkle with the silver glitter and leave to dry. Seal with a further coat of Mod Podge.
  10. Punch a hole in the front of the journal and thread your button with silver elasticated string before passing one end through the hole and wrapping around the journal/button to secure.
