For this project you take an inexpensive notebook and collage it to make it your own. What a great idea! I used one of my hand-painted papers from the 1st project, scrapbook paper, scraps torn from magazines, and a few assorted embellishments, including gold stars(we all deserve some of these!). I also used a great old photo of me that I LOVE because it looks like I'm having a blast riding a rocking horse! This picture makes me smile every time I see it!
Then I found this quote that goes very well with the photo, "We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing". How wonderful is that? I added the word play as an extra reminder.
I took a scrap of my hand-painted paper and formed it into a flower, and added a cute little brown leaf.
Can you tell that I love texture?
Then the final step was to tie ribbon and fibers to the side. Yay! Done!
This final picture is for those of you who questioned whether I would be able to tear up my pretty hand-painted papers (Shona ;) heehee). I wasn't sure myself, but as you can see here, it wasn't a problem! Yay!
