I had lots of lovely Madame Payraud papers left over from a previous magazine commission so used those.

I had a friend from Glasgow (Via Lincoln) visit me for the first time today. she wanted to see my craft room and have her first go at "rubber stamping"...
As it was her first time at this sort of crafting we kept it simple by making a little notebook each.
I have one of those huge big block pads that sit on your desk so we took a small section off and divided it between us.
We cut out a piece of stiff card for the back and a piece of normal card to ink up and stamp on to make the cover.

I am sharing the "outside" of an altered book box with you today. (the inside will be in a future post).
the step by step tutorial on techniques used to get the look are on the DecoArt mixed media blog HERE .
On here, I will simply share a few photos of the finished item. I have not done a tutorial for the "page effect" on the sides as, although it is not exactly the same as Candy's technique, it is close enough. so for a tutorial on that, have a look at Candy's post HERE (well worth a look as the project is beautiful).
So that is the outside. a tutorial for the effects on the inside will follow on the DecoArt mixed media blog very soon and then I can show you the inside in detail here. but here is a wee sneak peek at what to expect...
