Well I finally finished my notebook! All it took was two attempts at paper marbling, a big mess and a bit of swearing 😉
Why the alien? Well I was looking through my embellishments and found this little guy. He has a sticky pad on his back and when I put him on to see what it looked like, the sticky pad got well and truely stuck… I was going to re-position him but the paper was going to tear so he can stay there lol.
So I have completed the challenge, even if I did it very clumsily. At one point I didn’t think I was going to finish at all, as my blood pressure was rising and I was very close to hurling the notebook out of my bedroom window! Oh well… Bring on the October challenge!
After my first attempt at paper marbling, I was ready to give up but thanks to encouragement from you lovely lot I decided to give it one more go. So did my attempt look like the photo in the book this time? Nope! But it was a huge improvement on last time… and this time I didn’t cover my kitchen floor in wallpaper paste whilst trying to tidy up =)
I’m still not sure if I will use my marbled paper to cover my notebook for the #craftblogclub challenge. Either way I am glad I had another go! Here is a reminder of my first attempt.
Not good… Here are some of sheets from my second attempt.
Not exactly a work of art but I’m much happier with it! So thank you for the encouragement! I have another idea that I want to try out so who knows what will happen to my poor notebook! Haha =)
Bye for now!
