Rejoice! An 'uplifting' altered notebook

For my dt project this mth, I personalised a regular notebook. An extremely simple project with clean lines and lots of open spaces. Yet, I think it's pretty in it's own simplistic way. 

I can't wait to get it back from rotation so it can serve as the memory keeper and story teller that it was meant to be.

Mixed media job

After Papier resident artist Amelia gave a live demo on how to do this, I decided to give it a shot. I used an 8x8 canvas as opposed to 12x12 just so I didn't intimidate myself.

Only 2 cans of real spray mist. The third I made using Martha Stewart paints; cheap eyeshadow and a spray bottle from daiso. It turned out remarkably well.

The findings are a mash of whatever was available in my drawer. It was hard finding enough; I kid you not. I suggest if you'd like to try this - do raid your local hardware store first.
I don't think I need to tell you who's in the picture. ;-)
