As soon as I saw this paper, I knew I wanted to use it for a notebook, so I created my own. This is the new DSP Newsprint and new stamp set called Artistic Etchings (available from 1st September). The front and back cover is just Basic Black cardstock, and I stamped the Newsprint paper with the elements from the stamp set in Basic Black and Riding Hood Red ink. I gave the front panel with the Eiffel Tower the suede effect which gave it more of a worn look. The letters were cut using the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Sizzlets and the Big Shot (my favorite tool).
I also decided to make a matching pencil, by covering it in the same DSP. Unfortunately I had forgotten to stamp the element in Riding Hood Red, so I used the Color Spritzer Tool to add some red colour to it.
Back with more soon.
