* Vera Lane Studio: Matilda Note Book


I'm back with my second post of the day for Vera Lane Studio
This time I used Matilda 2 to alter and decorate the cover of a kraft, spiral bound note book. I'm going to use this for my important DT information for Vera Lane Studio in 2019.

I used Graphic 45 design paper and ran scissors around the edges to distress it, then I applied some Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I die cut some border strips from kraft card and inked these also with Vintage Photo, then attached them around the design paper. Matilda is coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut. I also coloured the Numbers with Copics and added some white Posca paint highlights. Matilda is glued onto a piece of contrasting design paper.
The Numbers are overlapped slightly to fit with the whimsical feel of the cover. I added some daisy, lace flower trim along one side and popped a tiny pearl into the centre of each one. Some hessian trim was added to the opposite side.
