This one was for hubby last christmas - using lots of white rub ons. (actually made a whole series of these for friends - all in all, used about 6 packs of different rub ons for about 12 people.) Made this one recently for my sis - with her favourite paper from Sassafrass Lass. The little girl on the tricycle actually reminds me of a photo of her as a little kid - very cute, with curls)
Thought you might like to see it more clearly without the frosted cover...
1. Notebooks with plain covers - I got mine from Borders (more expensive but really nice. You can use cheapo ones for people you don't like so much...haha)
2. Scraps of patterned paper, and rub ons.
3. Layer, layer, layer in the corner.... - you might find it helpful to cover the corner with word paper (like in my sis's book) to have a 'base' that will cover any of your empty spots. Also, I find it helps to just layer in one long element going along the bottom edge and one on the right edge to help me get started. Then all the big elements go in first, and then after that fill in little bits with rub ons or little images you like.
Note: Its quite nice if the rub ons get 'broken' as you work too - it's texture! (All my mistakes are texture)
This is a nice way to use up some of your old rub ons and bits of paper... Enjoy!
