A Jar of Eyeballs

I thought I'd start the week off with something a little different from me.

A notebook.

This was commissioned by a lovely lady from America. She wanted a notebook for her daughter. Something including eyeballs, the colour purple and her initials ND. I love being pushed outside of my 'comfort zone' so grabbed this challenge with both hands!

I started with an image from Meljen's Designs, and built the design up around that.

I chose some dark purple textured cardstock from American Crafts and added a doily design using my Indigo Blu Flitter in the colour.. Gin and Tonic. I layered some teal scallops with some checkerboard paper and finally a bow made with ribbon from The Ribbon Girl. 

I didn't want to go too overboard with the embellishments, so added a button to the knot in the now, and a few liquid pearls here and there.

Easy peasy, and I loved it!!

Happy Monday. xo
