ANYTHING BUT A CARD AT BUGABOO STAMPS

It's Monday, it's ABaC Monday

ANYTHING BUT A CARD


I covered a store bought index book using an offcut of dp, and then added n strip of kraft over the spine.  All the edges were inked, and I tied some twine around it too.


The featured Bugaboo image, Farm Critter Stack was coloured using alcohol markers and a white gel pen 

I used the following

store bought index book
dp offcut
kraft offcut
twine

When the project was finished I used a clear lacquer aerosol over all it, to make it stain resistant, because this little book will be a RAK for Ainsley, my 'adopted' son, who is now working at a large butchery, and he will be making lots and lots of notes as he moves from department to department as part of his training programme.

This week I will be taking you on a tour of the City Halls in various cities and towns in South Africa.

Thanks for spending time with me today - we're visiting the City Hall in Durban, my home town.
