Be Brave by Lynne Moncrieff


Today, I'm sharing a notebook featuring a stencilled sentiment.






Supplies


PaperArtsy Stamps Sets - JOFY 12, 14
Fresco Chalk Acrylic – French Roast, Chalk
Martha Stewart Satin Acrylic – Sea Lavender
Prima Wax Thread
Paper Trimmer
Extras:- Calico, button, crochet lace, re-cycled old box packaging, brown paper packaging


Instructions


For the cover, cut two panels from a re-cycled corrugated box packaging. Paint with Gesso followed with Chalk and Sea Lavender, I have a very random way of applying paint – I will happily mix them on the same brush. Stamp JOFY stamps with Tuexdo Black, once ink is dry, dry brush Gesso. 






Cut re-cycled brown paper packaging to size, as many sheets as you require, using the covers as a guide. Punch holes into the covers and pages, binding together with wax thread. Lay aside for the moment.

Stencil be (from becoming) and brave onto calico with fineliner pen. Tear a piece of the box packaging to reveal the corrugation, dry brush with Gesso. Layer brave onto this.  Adhere the stencilled words to front cover, embellishing cover with crochet lace and button.





A speedy “junk” notebook, a place to write your thoughts on what you could do that would bring out the brave in you!

Until next time,

Wishes

Lynne

  4. What a nice, quick little note book! I love that everything is recycled! I'm using some recycled card board to make a journal this week. You always inspire me to try something new, Lynne. I AM going to trying stamping/stenciling on fabric. ") You always make it look so very easy. This cover has everything I like: script background, texture stamping, buttons and lace, and stenciling. Well put together, Lynne. Thanks for sharing with us. inkybru xx

  5. Dear Lynne, what a wonderful way of creating your own notebook. The fine liner pen, used with the stencils, gives such a beautiful result, I think you are so clever ,to have such clean and lovely script result!! Also I love the corrugated cardboard behind the stencil, and the color you created mixing straight on the brush. A great notebook, with so many possibilities. Thank you my dear friend, for this lovely idea. xxx
