Altered Notepads by Alison Hall


Hello Everyone! I've been making use of one of my many Gelli Plate prints, to alter a couple of plain notepads. They made perfect Mother's Day presents, but would equally work as a birthday present for a friend!
 
 
 
 


Here's what I used...


Ink Blending Foam 
Red Buttons (2)

 

Here's what I did...


1. I cut two pieces of printed paper to fit the front of the notepads, then stamped the designs on them using the black pigment ink. I embossed the images with detail clear embossing powder.
 

2. I inked the edges of my designs using blending foam and the black Archival ink, then glued them to the notepad covers with Glossy Accents.
 

3. To finish, I used the Glossy Accents to glue on a couple of red buttons.
 

So, a very simple way to liven up a couple of plain notepads! I also glued some magnetic discs to the backs, so they could be kept on a fridge, and used as shopping lists.
 

Have a creative day!
