Sugar Creek Hollow Vintage/Shabby Chic Challenge

Hi there!
Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow. This week we want you to make a vintage or shabby chic project ...with the theme...

Alter something in a vintage or shabby style

Woohooooo! I've been loving working with Dylusion Sprays, Gesso AND acrylic paints...so pulled out a plain ole brown notebook and went to town with the acrylicpaint, stencils and stamps...
here's what I came up with

the back is done also...

Used an old favorite stamp set from Stampin Up called "Long Time Friend" for primary image..the rest of the stamped images are just random stamps (some you can see clearly but some are "ghosted" and didnt show in picture...also used stencil from Dylusions for the leaves down the side, image is colored with Copics. Also used some Gelato sticks for the orange areas, white craft ink and a white Sharpie pen...stash lace.
The entire cover (front and back) is sealed with Modge Podge

I had so much fun creating this!!!...going to go back to Target and get some more notebooks!!

hugs,

Hi Linda,
I have never tried the Dylusion Sprays, but it sure looks fab. Mixed media is something I haven't tried at all, and yesterday's piece was the first time I altered something, but it's fun, so I might get into it some day. Really love the look of how your notebook turned out.

Hugz,
Sandy

How funny, I've just 'done' a notebook/art journal too :) Love this arty cover you've done - I have that Dylusions stencil too - don't you just love getting messy with ink sprays and gelatos?
