Da agenda a block notes (riciclo)

Per questo progetto mi sono ispirata ai challenge di Newton's Nook e di DoubleD
che propongono il tema "plaid". Trovo che il plaid sia perfetto per l'autunno.  :D
Ho riciclato una vecchia agenda inutilizzata (una di quelle agende regalate dalle assicurazioni). Le date sull'agenda non corrispondevano a quelle di quest'anno, ma la copertina marrone era nuova, così ho tolto le pagine interne e al loro posto ho incollato un block notes.
L'interno è così:
Ho riciclato una vecchia cartellina di Manila per ricoprire l'interno lasciando un bordo bianco attorno e ho grattato la carta con il paper distresser per aumentare l'effetto vissuto. Ho usato i D.I. Vintage Photo e Carved Pumpkins per sfumare i bordi.
In basso ho attaccato quattro strisce di una vecchia stuoia (riciclo, tanto per non smentirmi... LOL) per simulare un pavimento di legno. Mi piace moltissimo l'effetto!! :)
L'adorabile gattino che dorme sulla pila di coperte è lui, Newton! (set "Newton's Naptime).
Ho colorato l'immagine con i Graph'it markers; ho fatto anche delle righe per simulare il "plaid" su due coperte. Ho ritagliato Newton e l'ho attaccato con il foam biadesivo.
La carta "plaid" sullo sfondo è un avanzo di Friendly Forest- Doodlebug Design, distressata sui bordi; le foglie  sono tagliate con un set di fustelle trovate in una rivista, usando alcuni piccoli scarti di cartoncino; le ho colorate con i Distress Inks. Il sentiment fa parte dello stesso set di timbri. L'ho tagliato con un punch e colorato con i Distress Ink)
Questo è l'esterno
La carta "plaid" è la stessa che ho usato all'interno (Friendly Forest- Doodlebug Design); ho usato anche un pezzo di carta patterned Merineva che ha dettagli glitterati. Le foglie e il sentiment sono tagliati da avanzi di cartoncino con un set di fustelle trovato in una rivista (vedi sopra). Sul sentiment ho passato una penna gel bianca.
Il frame con il timbro (Gorjuss - Love you little rabbit) e la sua cornice sono tagliati con Spellbinder Label Height; il frame è colorato con il DI Scattered Straw, mentre la carta patterned arancione è Merineva.

Con questo progetto intendo partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

  25. This is a useful item which you've decorated beautifully in autumn colors and details. The design feels very warm and cozy. Not only did you do a great job on the outside, but the inside is well designed as well.
    I did receive your email, thank you so much, and I did get in contact in time. It's been some hectic days back from holiday and we've changed the clock so it's dark when I go to work and when I leave. Early bed times. Yesterday it started snowing here. Still many yellow leaves on the trees, unusual to see that in combination with snow...

  26. This is so beautiful! I love the way you colored the plaid on teh blankets! So pretty! Thanks for playing along with our Inky Paws Challenge!
