My GDT project for AALL & Create this week is a sticky note holder using Olga Heldwein's fabulous stamp set (Flowers & Gears #195 and Steam Cogs Stencil #71). Olga's beautiful stamp set appeals to both masculine and feminine tastes with gorgeous flowers and also cogs and gears.
I started by creating a background, directly onto mixed media board, using several colours of Distress Oxides (I wanted rusty tones) before stamping the beautiful cogs and gears in brown Archival Ink. I then die cut the Notebook using Eileen Hull's new Notebook die.
I stamped a few more cogs onto lightly gessoed Kraft card and coloured these with Quinacridone Gold acrylic paint before fussy cutting them. The gessoed card gave a nice texture.
I added some metal cogs and gears from my stash to the fussy cut ones and glued these to the front
of the finished notebook.
I used AALL & Create stencil #71 on the inside cover of the notebook and then created two pockets to hold post it notes, again stamping cogs onto the pockets.
Finally, I added an elastic closure to the notebook and some charms from my stash.
You can find a list of worldwide stockists for the stamps and stencils I used along with the full range of stamps, stencils and new dies HERE.
Thanks so much for your visit, I hope to see you again soon.
Hugs, Anne xx
