My Other Creations: Re-purposed Notebooks using Dina Wakley's Giant Funky Silhouettes

This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme is "B is for...."  I went with two brightly-colored books made with a boy stencil cut into different shapes.

I started with a collage that I made using Dina Wakley's Giant Funky Silhouette stencil, some patterned paper, stamping, more stenciling and lots of paint.

Then I got brave and got out the scissors and cut up my collage!

I liked how cutting this piece up gave me several smaller pieces of imagery to work with.  I added two of the panels to my notebooks.

These two notebooks came from one tall notebook (a Prima Traveler's Journal) that I cut in half.  Guess I was going all sorts of crazy with the scissors on this project!

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