Grungeboard Valentine Notebook


A couple of firsts in this project.... my first time using grungeboard, and my first time using the bind-it-all to make something with more than just 6 holes in it!

The covers are white mountboard, inked with fired brick, aged mahogany and walnut stain distress inks. The crackle pattern was stamped with walnut ink too. The edges were distressed with my new needle file set from B&Q - a real bargain, a set of assorted small files, very like the Basic Grey file set but with 6 files rather than 4, and under £3 - perfect for distressing paper/card/board etc.

The hinges were taken from the plain grungeboard elements set, coloured with a brown marvy brush marker and fixed to the covers with d/s tape then bradded at one end for an accent.

The heart and wings were from the same set. The heart was inked and stamped in the same was as the covers, the wings were painted with white acrylic paint, edged with walnut stain ink applied with cut'n'dry foam and accented with a grey brush marker. The gold board was a remnant from a previous project, coloured with moonglow spritz ink.

The pages inside were taken from a pack of 5x3 record cards I got in a £ shop.

I hope you like it! Click on any image to enlarge it.
