Another week , another little project, another idea to share with those of you who like crafts and love creativity , for those who want to make things at home , without spending a fortune, using simple materials that we all have in our drawers and shelves .
This week’s project is the transformation of a diary.
I prefer diaries with just the basic things: important dates , telephones, some maps and plenty of writing space in each page.
I started by painting the black cover white, using acrylic colour.
I chose two napkins, a black and white and a burgundy one , with purple and golden details. I cut out wide stripes of napkin and used a decoupage glue to carefully stick the layers on the cover of the diary. You need to be careful at this stage to stretch out the napkin , firmly but smoothly, in order to avoid creases .
I am very happy with the way both the front and the cover of my new diary look J
I think I’m going to take it now, snuggle in my sofa, with a cup of tea and my favourite pen , to write down some of the events and thoughts of the first days of 2016!:
