DSC #128 - What's in you Bag - 20 February, 2015

Our sponsor this week is 
Stitchy Bear

You will find lots of wonderful artists at Stitchy Bear, I chose an image from Ken Benner Designs called "Grey Elephant"

This week's challenge was a new one for me, "What's in your bag" have a look in your handbag, craftbag etc and find something that could do with a facelift.

I chose my dull dark blue diary.  Grey Elephant had to become Blue (my favourite colour)  I have coloured the image digitally, adding a title, and printed onto canvas photo paper.  You can see from the photo below, that the image is darker on one side of the paper than the other, I chose the darker image to work with.

I took off the vinyl cover and found I had a good cardboard cover to work with, using Modge Podge I attached the image around the book. One side at a time, to allow for drying, after it had dried I added some ribbon, flowers and gems, I then modge podged over the entire cover to give it some protection, after all it has to last until the end of the year.  I've already found it easier to locate in my bag.  My diary is now my Elephants Never Forget Book, lets hope that helps me to remember things.
