Olivia Notebook

Olivia by Daniel Torrente
Carol's Flower By Janet Klein
Sentiment by Janet Klein

This is a notebook I made from a few large sized tags because I always feel like I can never have enough notebooks! I used 'Olivia' by Daniel Torrente and 'Carol's flower' by Janet Klein.

I used ink sprays to create my background before adding a few splats with more spray inks as well as a bit of acrylic paint, and then stamped the flower randomly all over using two colours of Distress inks:

I stamped Olivia and coloured her in using distress inks:

After binding the book together with my bind-it-all, I stamped a few images on the inside pages of the book using distress inks: 

See more on my blog here. Thanks for looking!

Fabulous and thanks for sharing how you did the background. I love the stamping on the inside pages too to match the cover - great idea.

I love it. I'm now waiting for the postman to bring me my first Stampotique stamps! They must arrive today. Can't wait to ink them up.
