Daydream Notes by Samantha Read


Hello! I'm super excited today to be trying out a new camera, a very lovely birthday present so today you get two photos from me! 

I'd had this little, plain, brown note book hanging around my craft room for sometime so finally put it to good use, it's approximately 4 in x 6 in so perfect for a little bag or big pocket.

There are times when I don't want to take what I'm making too seriously and just want to try a looser style of working and I've also tried to keep it quite dreamy and childlike.

This second photo captures the sparkle, made using a liquid chrome pen, on the fairy boy's wings, something my old camera may not have shown so well.

What I did

I painted the cover of the book with a couple of coats of white gesso, then added colour using paints and sprays and details using stamps. I drew the fairy boy on white card using the stencil, omitting his crown and moving the flower to his hands. I then coloured using paints and the wings were finished with glitter glue and a pen. To finish I stamped text directly on to the book and on to white card and adhered in place and doodled a black frame around the edge.

What I used

TandiArt Stencil - ID45
That's Crafty! Clear Stamps - Textures Collection Set 1
That's Crafty! Clear Stamps - ATCoin Set 11
Molotow Liquid Chrome pen
That's Crafty! Lustre Spray - Silver
