Blue Science Notebook

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this Blue Science Notebook. :o)

When my friend saw a notebook I made for myself in May this year (here), she wanted me to make a similar notebook for her boyfriend. Same theme, same image, same size, only two requests were a blue color, as that is his favorite color, and to be finished prior September. :o)

How I made this notebook...

To make this notebook I used stamps from two Your Next Stamp stamp sets: 'Perfect Chemistry' and 'Periodically Nerdy'. :o)

I colored a professor during Kathy's Racoosin 13th 30 day coloring challenge (a preview of all my coloring here).

I stamped the professor on a watercolor paper and colored him in a watercolor technique using Distress Inks. First I colored his tongue in pink, but I didn't like it, so I recolored it with a Tea Dye Distress Ink, same color I used for the skin. After drying, I fussy cut the professor and traced edges with black marker.

I left the image aside until I got a clear idea on how the notebook will look like (ehmmm, two months).

I made notebook covers using a white cardstock paper and a blue cardstock paper. When covers were completely dry, I punched holes on the cover spine and glued magnets on covers.

I selected letters from Periodic Table of Elements which form word 'Notebook', stamped them on a printed patterned paper, fussy cut letters and glued them directly on the notebook front cover.

Then I stamped the professor again, this time on the white cardstock paper, fussy cut him, colored with a grey marker, traced edges with the black marker and glued watercolored professor over him. I did this to make the image thicker. Then I glued the professor on the front cover.

Next up was a pocket. I managed to smear a glue inside of covers and I needed something to cover that up and not to start all over again. I made a simple pocket and glued it inside of the notebook, over the ugly glue stain. :o)

Lastly, I placed binding rings into punched holes on the cover spine, filled the notebook with grid papers and the notebook was finished.

Covers measurements
length: 6 3/4" + 3/4" + 6 3/4" + 5/8" + 2"
height: 3 1/2"

List of supplies:

Although the binding didn't turned out as I planed and pages are not flipping very well, I love how the notebook turned out. My friends also loved it, which made me very happy. :o) Here is a short video....
