Clean and Simple

Here is a notebook that I have made using the Bind-it-All and an image taken from the Crafter's Companion Appley Dapply's Nursery Rhymes by Beatrix Potter CD. I am entering it into this month's Crafter's Companion challenge, which is for any project made using the clean and simple (CAS) style.

The notebook was made using two pieces of  7"x9" card covered with white pearlescent paper. I printed the wording for the front cover onto pearlescent white paper before covering it and then sprayed both covers with Crafter's Companion Spray and Shine.

I used the image of Appley Dapply from the dĂ©coupage section of the CD to decorate the front cover, going round the outside of the base image with a Spectrum Noir pen (BT1) before cutting it out.

I want to be able to use my notebook so I stuck each layer using extra strong double-sided tape. This way the image isn't too bulky and won't lift up or get bent while still giving me a good 3D effect. To help protect it I also sprayed each layer with Spray and Shine.
