If I Had Wings (Decorated Notebook) by Lynne Moncrieff



I really am enjoying stamping up the Sam Poole Art Sayings, this time to decorate a small notebook.


Distress Paints Broken China, Tattered Rose and Spun Sugar
Extras:- Small kraft hardback notebook, wooden birdcage embellishment, lace rose trim



Apply Gesso to notebook. When dry apply patches of texture with the stencil and texture paste. Leave to dry before randomly applying paints. Speed up drying time with heat gun before adding sparkle with the Luna Silver Flakes which I applied with Gel Medium.


Apply paints to the wooden birdcage and also a touch of mica flakes.

Apply Spun Sugar to white cardstock. Stamp Art Saying. Cut words to create word tiles, sponging Black Soot onto edges. 

Decorate the notebook front cover with the birdcage, lace roses and Art Saying.


Until next time,



  1. What a sweet little notebook. I love your colours and those words look great. I love also how you've added texture with the stencil and the mica flakes. A pretty and poignant little book. I've been thinking a lot about the symbolism of wings myself lately. Have a lovely, creative week. Julie Ann xxx

  2. What a lovely gift idea Lynne. Love the texture on the front and the sweet birdcage and sentiment.
