Summer Sunflowers Notebook (HLS – Watercolour)

P1080326 (2)

Hello and welcome

Today I’m back for a project for HLS Watercolour Challenge for October 2019 with an optional twist of BOTANICAL !  However, anything  watercolour is just fine.

I hope you can find time to join in the fun this month!

This month, I have chosen to go with a notebook rather than a card, just for a change.

It was a perfect gift for a friend.

To begin Penny Black – Summer Sunflowers was stamped on a piece of watercolour paper. This is a very old wood block stamp, one of my very first purchases maybe 15 or more years ago. I just like the various elements included in this simple scene. However, it hasn’t seen the light of day for a while! LOL!

The image was watercoloured using a variety of inks.

After trimming, the panel was added to a piece of  light coloured kraft cardstock, before being adhered to the front of the kraft notebook with a neutral button and raffia tie.

I thought it all tied in together perfectly.  The notebook pages are all made of kraft stock as well, giving it all a very natural earthy feel.

Please head over to our blog and check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team!  I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month.  Good luck!

Thanks so much for visiting. I really appreciate you taking the time.
Happy crafting

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
