I've been waiting a LONG time to share this with you and I finally can! I made this Llama Diamond Art Altered Notebook in February using supplies I received at the FaveCrafts Blogger Networking Event during Creativation. This post contains affiliate links.
Llama Diamond Art Altered Notebook
- Leisure Arts Llama Diamond Art
- Fiskars microtip scissors
- Fox Chapel 'Dog is Love' journal
- Folk Art Multi-Surface Light Blue
- foam brush
- Matte Mod Podge
- Mod Podge brush
- Leisure Arts 'Kindness Matters' coloring book
- Prismacolor markers
- Supertite adhesive
The first thing I did was complete the llama Diamond Art. I see no reason why a llama should be subject to drama, so....
... I used the microtip scissors to carefully cut the llama away from the rest of the canvas. No drama for you, llama!
I grew up with dogs and like them just fine, but didn't see myself using a 'Dog is Love' journal, so....
.... I painted over the design. I used Folk Art's multi-surface acrylic and applied a very thin coat.
When it was dry, I added another thin coat going the opposite direction. I added a third coat going the original direction, though it really wasn't necessary. Two coats gave good coverage.
Next, I cut out 'LOVE' from the Kindness Matters coloring book.
I colored the letters black and the interior of the O and the E a hot pink that matched the color in the Diamond Art.
I applied a thin coat of Mod Podge to the front of the book, then positioned the letters. I added two more coats of Mod Podge over the entire front cover, allowing plenty of drying time between coats.
I used the Supertite glue to attach the llama to the front cover, then used a few of the leftover Dotz to fill in the letters.
No drama for you, llama! Only love.
