I want to share with you my latest project which has taken a couple of days. I was surfing the net looking for copic colour charts and came across a blog via Splitcoaststampers featuring a wonderful book which you can see here. I thought it was brilliant idea and just looked so loved, like you wouldn't want to be without it.
Anyway I decided to give it ago. Wanting to put my Copic colours in I couldn't just use any old notebook so made my own then I can print out my charts on the Ryman's paper and add to as and when.
I started with two 8x8 pieces of board and covered with the gorgeous Tim Holtz Kraft Resist paper (which is embossed in places so when you ink over it the embossing resists the ink) and lined with Papermania Kraft, the inside sections were made with card from packaging and again covered. The file tabs were cut on my Cricut.
I inked everything with distress inks in Fired Brick, Barn Door, Rusty Hinge and Dried Marigold then covered in Tattered Angels Pearl glimmer mist. Decorated the pages with Tim Holtz dies and made some pockets for the back of the flaps.
As I said I plan to keep all my colour charts for easy reference, coloured images and all that other stuff we should write down instead of trying to remember where we saw it.
