I love moleskin notebooks. I had a package of three 3.5 x 5.5 inch notebooks in black. They are a convenient place to jot down ideas, sketches, and to do lists. I usually have one tucked into my purse. But for my word for the year, I wanted something with a little more personality. So I transformed one of them. I delved into my scrapbook paper stash and found a paper with selected verses on it from the Bible. I cut it to the size of the outside of the cover and modpodged it on. Then I embellished with a stamp in blue chalk ink. The words, "to Believe is to have Faith," are a sticker. I also added the butterfly. Everything was topped with another layer of modpodge. When the modpodge dried the cover curled a little bit. I tucked it under a heavy book and it straightened right out.
Decorating my notebook was quick and easy with materials that I already had on hand. I've already begun to fill my notebook with ideas.
Do you use moleskin notebooks? Have you ever decorated one?
