Work Diary 2015

I brought a work diary for myself this year, with the intention of altering it. It has taken me until this weekend to do so. The original diary was black - note to self buy a lighter colour next year, took a few layers of chalk fresco paint to cover.

I used grunge paste through a JoFy stencil, and then painted the diary with Chalk.  I painted some white card with Bougainvillea, Dusty teal, and Guacamole mixed with Limelight. I then used JoFY stamps over the paints, and then out the flowers & leaves.

I then die cut some numbers to make the year and painted with Bougainvillea, I also stamped the small bee from the JoFY new plate. 

 I am not sure how long it will last in my work bag, but we will see.

I am entering this into the Paperartsy challenge which this time is - paints.

Thanks for looking
