Floral Notebook

Hello, and if this is your first time here a very warm welcome to you! I hope you will enjoy your visit, please leave me a comment as I would love to visit your blog too. I hope you have escaped all of the nasty winter bugs going around, I am so looking forward to the spring! 
Today I would like to share my Floral Notebook with you, which I created for Indigoblu. Indigoblu make amazing, unique and very high quality rubber stamps which are all manufactured right here in the UK. Their new floral stamps are just gorgeous and are a joy to colour !

This is how I created my notebook. 

I removed some pages from an old book, this one happened to be “Wind In The Willows” I tore the pages into large strips, and adhered them  to both sides of the  notebook covers using Super Thick Slap It On.

Using a Versamarker ink pad I stamped the flowers and heat embossed them with brown embossing powder.
After colouring the flowers with Indigoblu paints I fussy cut them.I added some Mulberry Bush (this is my new favourite colour) paint to the edges of the notebook.I used sticky foam pads to adhere the flowers to the cover.I also added some pressed flowers to the cover.

I tied ribbons and twine to the book rings, and then stamped the anemones on the bottom of each of the inside pages.
