Back to School Friday FUN: Part 4!

Hello Readers! Today I have a BEAUTIFUL project from Rita Barakat from Design Memory Craft’s design team, displaying some ways to make a school notebook into something stunning! Follow along with her as she explains her progress:

How do you go from this to this?
Every year as the kids go back to school I alter a composition book for me! Notes, journaling, ideas for future projects go in here!
Cover the book with Gesso and then color with your favorite Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gelatos™. The color is soft and easily blended with a dry sponge.

Grab your stencils and some Molding Paste or Gel Medium (heavy), spread the paste onto the stencil like frosting and carefully lift off.
*Clean your stencil right away! Baby wipe or soap and water!
You can use a heat gun to dry or set it aside.
After it was dry I went back and added another coat of Gesso
this step is NOT necessary; the black was still showing and driving me crazy so I did it. It was not necessary as the layers would have covered it up eventually;
I wasn’t sure where I was going with this so I covered it and added more color.
I included this picture because I wanted to show that you can color right on
top of your dry texture with Gelatos™.


Add more paste and more color…
Continue to add color, paper and embellishments
until you are happy with it.
On top of the paste add
You can see it really shines, it was the perfect accent! 
I hope this inspires you to alter your own notebook!
