The notebooks are appreciation gifts for two lovely colleagues. To create the look, I used a lot of masking tape on the (paper) covers.
The method is simple:
- Select a minimum of four styles of masking tape in complementary and contrasting colours.
- Tear off tape, varying the length, overlapping and criss crossing for texture. Cover the entire surface, leaving no spaces.
- Use a pen or marker to outline a shape.
- Add contrasting tape to fill in the shape.
For best results, I suggest pressing the finished project under something heavy or leaving it alone for a few days to set. After that, transparent tape may be used to protect the edges if you use the notebook a lot.
Good luck, warm light and love, my friends, until I see you again.
