Tim Holtz Curiosity Shop - His Notebook

Hello my friends, I'm sharing the His and Her Notebooks I made for the YouTube Live launch of Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous new release of stamps and stencils decorated with images from the Curiosity Shop and Wheel, Labels and Spots Layering Stencils.

I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to 4.1/4" x 6" to make covers for notebooks I found in my local bargain stationery store.
Let's begin with the "His" Notebook
I applied Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink randomly over the front cover panel using the Labels Layering Stencil and a Tiny Blending Tool.
I repeated the process using Scorched Timber Distress Oxide ink with the Spots Layering Stencil.
I stamped the numbers image on the side of the panel inked with Black Soot Distress Archival ink.
At this stage, I realised that the background was too white. I sprayed Old Paper Distress Spray Stain on my Glass Media Mat, picked up on a slightly wet piece of cloth and pounced on to the background. I stamped the lightbulb, moustache and sentiment on to the background and the hat on to a scrap of Distress Watercolor card, inked with Black Soot Distress Archival ink, fussy cut and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium.
I coloured the images with Blueprint Sketch and Scorched Timber Distress Watercolor Pencils and a Detailer Water Brush and flicked the Water Brush off the Scorched Timber pencil to create splatters.
I placed the Spots Layering Stencil over the original stencilling and added a shadow by drawing inside the stencil with the Scorched Timber Distress Watercolor Pencil.
I decorated the back cover in a similiar manner, inked around the edges of both covers with Scorched Timber Distress Ink, flicked on water and dried. I fixed the covers in place with Distress Collage Medium and added Idea-ology Design Tape over the spine.
As an afterthought, I inked the "Just A Note" sentiment with Black Soot Distress Archival ink and stamped randomly over both covers to fill in some of the blank spaces.

I'll be back soon to share the "Her" Notebook.
