I quickly altered this notebook the other day before I took off to visit my mom, but didn't have time to photograph or upload it. This is a full size composition book. I started with some Soft Sky dp that I sponged through the sun burst stencil with Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie. I then punched 3 circles in a post it note and sponged through the smallest one first then layered on more color through the successively larger ones. I die cut the bird and branch in the chocolate chip then cut a bird from a scrap of gesso and paint colored dictionary page. I scribbled Rose Red marker onto acetate then used a wet brush to add this to the belly. Used a glitter pen for the beak and a white gel pen and marker for the eye. The letters were sprayed with shimmer spray and also had the rose painted on. I cut two black of each letter to layer behind to add more definition. My grass is gesso over book page with stamped grass with some marker additions. I used a stitched chocolate chip ribbon with scor tape to cover the spine. My flowers are punched from a sheet of Polished stone paper. I also sponged some pink through dry wall mesh tape around the edges. I threw a few punched pink music notes up by the bird. I will re-glue the letter "t" as I see in the pix that it got smooshed in my travels!
