Hello all. Nicole here with a fun project to share with you. I finally got a chance o get messy with this travelers notebook. Have you gotten yours yet? I think there’s one more in the shop if you are interested. Snag it now, (here) quick, because it might be gone by the time you get finished seeing what I did with mine.
I am relatively happy with how this turned out. However, I did make a mistake. I did NOT apply gesso to the travel notebook BEFORE I applied the paint which means that it didn’t take long before the paint started to peel off the notebook. So before you do anything with yours, do yourself a favor and apply gesso to your travel notebook right now.
I added some scraps in the supply case to have on hand whenever I feel the need to decorate a page. I love blue so I gathered a few blue pieces of embellishments. 🙂
I used lots of acrylic paints and watercolor paints to decorate my travel notebook inserts. I love the acrylic paints by Ranger. The colors are so vibrant. I used watercolor paints by Prima and Shimmerz Paints as well.
For the folder insert, I decorated it with blue and green acrylic paint. Once dried, I used a paint dabber to make little white circles on the cover. Then I painted a thicker word and applied it to the front of the insert.
Thanks for visiting today!
