Lisa here with another Splash Of color project to share with you. I love tags and I love little notebooks. I decided to combine the 2 and create a little tag notebook The cover and back is thick chipboard covered with pattern paper and then adorned with Splash of Color product. The inside are die cut tags made from plain white card stock. I added 9 pages.
Here is a closeup of the flower cluster and my title. The flowers all starrted out white and I painted them with Splash Of Color Silks Acrylic Glaze in African Jade. The Mulberry paper leaves were a beige color and I painted them with Silks Acrylic Glaze in Pretty Peridot. The brown leaves were die cut and painted with Silks Acrylic Glaze in Nutmeg. The flourishes were die cut using Kraft paper and painted with the Nutmeg as well.
Here is a side view of the Tag Notebook. I thought 9 pages gave it a little bulk and plenty of space to write in. Once the cover was done, I used a toothbrush, Silks and a little water to spatter the cover and the back with the Silks glaze in Pretty Peridot. For the edges of cover and back of the tags, I rubbed some Splash Of Color Viva Colour Inka Gold in Steel Blue. Then using Luminarte Twinkling H20's in Bashful Blue, went over it lighty to get a 2 toned faded out effect.
Here you can see how I fanned out the papers. The ribbon is actually Seam Binding that I spread in a little puddle of the same Silks colors I used on the leaves and flowers. I misted the Seam Binding with water before I added the paint. The paint wicked into the Seam Binding with ease. I added a couple of strands of Bakers Twine as well.
Thank you for coming and taking a peek at my little tag notebook. This was a quick and fun project to do.
