Drummer Notebook (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #56)

Hi everyone :-D 

My second post today...

Today a new Aloha Friday Challenge starts at Kitty Bee Designs.

New challenge for this fortnight is #56 - Make Music.

Our sponsor for this challenge are Kenny K, who are giving to our lucky winner some cute digis.

For this challenge I made this Drummer Notebook, using our sponsor's beautiful image Kenny K 'Buggin Drummer' digital stamp.

First I printed the image on a white watercoloring paper. I wanted to get old photo look, so I decided to color the image in watercoloring technique with Distress Ink Vintage Photo. I like the Sepia look I got. :-D

After coloring whole image and background, I continued aging my image. I splattered background with water, then burnt all edges and distressed them after that.

I made notebook covers from corrugated cardboard I had in my stash. Inside, I added grid paper from an old notebook and tied them with thread with covers.

Then I decorated covers. I glued a piece of Kraft paper and colored image on them and decorated notebook with long fasteners and distressed wooden arrow. I also wrapped thread around the arrow. I wanted this notebook to close, so I added piece of thread inside covers, which can be easily wrapped around fasteners. I also covered inside covers with Kraft paper.

Notebook dimensions are 95 mm x 114 mm (3 3/4" x 4 1/2").
