{Guest Designer} for Something Tattered

Today I am guest designing for Something Tattered, and I wanted to share what I made with their gorgeous stamps! My sweet friend is one of the pastor’s at our church. She is of course super busy, and I thought a small little ‘to-do’ book might be just what she needs. I used a thin journal and decorated the front. I did not add any dimensional elements because I want her to be able to stack this on her desk without lumpy embellishments getting stuck on something. So, the Something Tattered stamps were perfect for adding a bit of design fun to this book.

Pin It

I first painted white gesso on the book. Then I used some matte lime acrylic paint along with the Something Tattered Den Wallpaper Background stamp to randomly add a bit of stamped color to the background. I then layered some Blue Fern Studios Ombre Dreams patterned paper and added the stamped Swirls Stamp set for the title. I fussy cut the image after stamping it. And lastly I used the Brooch Bling stamp set to add a few more design elements.
Journal: Moleskine Cahier Squared 
Papers: Blue Fern Studios Ombre Dreams Ginger's Dream and Shannon's Dream 
Something Tattered Stamps: Den Wallpaper Background Stamp, Swirls Stamp Set, Brooch Bling Stamp Set
