Jotter Pad

When I had a stall at the country fair a few weeks ago I had every intention of taking some altered jotter pads. I had bought a few from Tesco and I was going to put new fronts on and put each one in a cello bag with a pen. I'm pleased that I didn't make them because the country fair wasn't a success. It catered mainly for a family day out and the adults weren't interested in buying, they were there to entertain the children. 

Anyway, on to my pad. On a panel of white Papermill card I randomly stamped the images in Memento ink in sepia. I'd used stamps from two sets, PaperArtsy Clocks 4 and Clocks 6. I then used Distress Ink in Faded Burlap over the entire piece. After I'd fixed the panel to the front of the jotter I used my Cosmic Shimmer bronze pearlescent glue to make pearl drops round the sentiment to make it stand out. I like it and I'm going to use it for my own shopping lists.I might make some more for stocking fillers.

I'm entering my jotter in to the following challenges:
Robyn's Fetish - No flowers anywhere at All
Creative Belli Blog - Anything but a Card
Simon Says Stamp - Anything BUT a card
