Autumn Notepad (by Gerrina)

This week sees the last post for this time from our lovely guest designer Gerrina.  She has already shared with us two beautiful projects and her third is no exception. With her wonderful reminder of Autumn I shall hand you over to Gerrina.

Hello I am back again for my last post this month for the Guest Designer Team here at Chocolate Baroque. You will find this one not only here, but also at my blog.  This week again I didn't make a card. I made a cover for a notepad:

Materials used:

Stamps: Chocolate Baroque Autumn Poppy and Artistic Affirmations

Ink: Versafine Onyx black and Distress Ink in a variety of autumnal shades
Other: Notepad, aquarelpaper, water brush, brush and water

The cover of the notebook was stamped using Onyx Black with the mushroom stamp from Autumn Poppy. This image was coloured with the Distress inks and a pale colour wash of Hickory Smoke for the background. Finally I stamped the words from Artistic Affirmations again with the Onyx Black. This makes a sweet little gift I think, how about you?

Hope to see you back here next year,

Creatieve groetjes,

I think this would make a fabulous gift for a Teacher this Christmas.  Thank you Gerrina for your wonderful contributions over the past three weeks, we definitely look forward to seeing what you have in store for us next year.

In the meantime please drop by again to catch up with our regular design team girls, who always have something amazing to share with us.
