My Other Creations: Notebook using Dina Wakley's For the Love of Circles Stamp Set

Happy holidays, Happy 2019 and Happy Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!  The theme is Party Time, which is the sentiment I added to my notebook.

I wanted to experiment with Prima Oil Pastels, so I colored a circle stamp with them, spritzed it with water, then stamped it onto white watercolor paper.  Here's how it looked after I colored on the stamp:

Here are the two circles images, plus some patterns, after I stamped them:

Once my images were stamped, I used watercolor pencils to add some color around the edges of my cover.  Then I laid a polka dot stencil over everything and smeared mint-colored paint onto my whole page.  I added black paint to a mesh stencil and used that as a center line design.  I cut scraps of patterned paper and added them on and then I made the "Party Time" sentiment with my We R Memory Keepers typewriter.

Once the cover was made, I sewed it onto my Prima notebook and painted around the edges with black paint.

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
