Fix Your Eyes

So I was going through my cabinets and found this notebook and figured I should do something with it, who knows how long I have had this sitting around waiting to be altered. I personally do not use notebooks much but figured it is a good back to school item for the ABC Challenge. I used some black/gray paper that had some awesome swirls on it. Then I took some crackle paint (black) and put it in sme areas- heated it up and scuffed it up. Then I took some grunge die cuts and covered them in black again- spritzed the entire book with licorice spritz. I do actually love the way the book looks. I thought I would enter again in ODBDSLC26 as I did use die cuts and the sentiment is ODBD.
Have a Blessed day!

This turned out so well and has given me inspiration to cover the one I have in my supply box. My oldest granddaughter saw the one I made a few years ago and realy liked it. I have been looking for just the right paper to cover her's so your black & white may work for her...
