How To Beautify a ChipBoard Notebook Cover and Giveaway and Winner Announced

Two years ago, when I signed up for the Documented Life Project, I received two Chipboard notebooks.  I never used them in connection with all the wonderful tutorials, and they've been sitting on my shelf of "things to repurpose!"

Recently, on Stencil Girl Talk, I came across two wonderful tutorials by Gwen LeFleur and Debi Adams.  I incorporated bits of both of them to jazz up this book.

You can also watch Fallen Leaves Chipboard Cover on YouTube here.    In addition to my new Fallen Leaves stencil, I used the Women Heal the WorldDots and Dashes and the 9 x 12 Stencil from the January 2014 Stencil Club Kit.  I found that heavy body acrylic paints worked best for this project, and was also happy to have an excuse to use some of my acrylic markers.

I hope this video gives you some ideas, and that it inspires you the way the StencilTalk tutorials inspired me!  

GIVEAWAY ALERT:  I will send one of the Fallen Leaves stencils to one commenter!  Leave a comment below with your email address to be eligible to win.  I'll announce the winner on my blog next Tuesday!
