Based on Heart and Doddle Board by HollyPolly - http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/hearts-doodle-drawing
I love how the backgrounds all drawn in that project but i know i wouldnt have the patience or the skill to recreate it and i had loads of old magazines kicking around so i used ripped pieces of writting instead.
First i draw the design of the coloured areas onto some coloured paper (Shouldnt have used permenant marker because it seeped though the paper but hey-ho call it a lesson ive learned)
Sort of wish id used to stars instead of hearts but hey whats done is done, i have more notepads so next time.....)
Cover the surface of the notebook in a thin layer of glue, prit-stick will do, it doesnt need to be strong. Place lots of pieces of ripped paper on the glue.
Put glue on the back of your coloured shapes and glue them ontop of the paper.
I then covered this in sticky back plastic that i bought from my local super market for about 50p a metre. This will protect your cover from peelin and general wear and tear. Just watch out for air bubbles.
This is it next to one of my other books ive done.
And the other side.
Hope you like =]
