The Induction Module recommends that I keep a notebook/general diary to record exhibitions, hours spent on a design, recipes for dyes etc in other words all the notes that aren't specific to each chapter. I bought a cheap notebook for 99p but that's exactly what it looks like, colourful but CHEAP!
So I decided to cover it with some of the leather look paper I've made before. I knew all that paper (I think it's called sugar paper) would come in useful that I'd kept from deliveries from Great Art, they put a load of it in to protect your order. I was going to put it out for the recycling van but I straightened it out and put it away.
I got the idea from an article in Stitch by Jane Wild. You start by crumpling a piece of paper up, opening it out then crumpling it again, you keep doing this until it is soft and creased.
Next I gave it a coat of 'Burnt Umber' acrylic paint.
Then I lightly painted 'Copper' acrylic paint over the top to give it an aged look.
Then all I had to do was cover the notebook with it. I decided to take the notebook apart to cover the front and back properly. I think it took me longer to take it apart and put it together than it did to make the paper but it was worth it.
