Sunshine Studio: Mixed-media notebook/Микс-медийный блокнот с разделителями

Как же я рада, что наконец таки собралась и сделала микс-медийный блокнот с разделителями. Я очень люблю краски, очень люблю с ними эксперементировать. Только вот почти все так и остается в состоянии черновика, не доходит до стадии готовой работы, а значит и вам не показывала. Блокнот с нуля. Твердая обложка, размер блокнота 15*21 см. В блокноте 4 разделителя, на форзацах есть карманы для разных бумажек/записочек. Использовала краски, спреи и пудры от Lindy's Stamp Gang и Luminarte. Мне вот сразу пудры для эмбоссинга Lindy's Stamp Gang как то не очень понравились. На обложке обожаемые Silks. Девочки, все фото кликабельны, нажимайте и рассматривайте в большом размере) Обложка блокнота(и не только) очень красиво переливается. Остальные фото прячу под кат:) Вот такая задняя обложка Первый разделитель Второй разделитель Третий разделитель Четвертый разделитель Форзац с карманом) Marta Lapkowska: Freedom of my journal pages + HOW TO TUTORIAL.
