Day of the Dead Notebook by Mandy C


Blank notebook
Flourish Stamp (Kaisercraft have some lovely ones)
Black Archival


·       Firstly, apply gesso to your notebook blank… this one is a craft card one. Leave to dry.

·       Add some Distress ink in Old Paper across the middle of the front and back of the book. Blend with some Chipped Sapphire. Rub the inks and paints together so it is blended. Keep adding Chipped Sapphire around the edges of the book cover until you are happy with it.

·       Stamp using the Ellen Vargo set and the ‘Watering Can’ Archival, over both covers.

·       Add some Tarnished Brass Distress paint around the edge of the covers and rub in. Then add some of the metallic lustre. Set to one side to dry.
·       Stamp your ‘Day of the Dead’ gent onto some white stamping card. Colour with your watercolour pencils or any colouring medium of your choice. Cut out and adhere to your book cover with the Cosmic Shimmer Glue.

·       Add some flourishes in black, on the front cover and a small one on the back. Use the Crackle Accents on the flourishes and the teeth and sword of the man.


et voila!
