First I had a picture in my head of what I wanted the base cover to look like, so I gathered what I thought I would need for supplies. Tissue paper, inks, mists, glue, string and book board to work on.
Next came the layering... Starting with the twine. I glued the twine to the book board in the pattern/design I wanted. Then layered on pieces of tissue paper. Once dry, inks and shimmers were added until I like the way it looked.
After all that was dry I added embellishments. Some fabric flowers, brass key and leaf, and a filigree button with black rhinestones.
Then it was a matter of assembling the final note book with lined pages and a black wire spiral.
It is currently available for purchase at my Etsy shop.
