First, the crafty stuff — I wanted to try something different. This is my first project using the Zutter canvas covers. I was really apprehensive at first because I didn’t have any good ideas to emphasize the canvas texture. I decided to ink it and after some aggressive inking and massaging some of the ink with my fingers into the cover, it took really well. Maybe I’ll try painting them next time. This book is meant to be a notebook or journal of sorts and is packed with pages. The Prima stuff is great! I’d never worked with their paper before–soooo pretty!
Second, Twilight loot and link back to my bud, Aimee’s blog (You have to check out her Twilight bracelet!) — Scored some great Twilight loot at Borders and Hot Topic yesterday on the info-sharing of a very good bud, Carolyn. She told me that Waldenbooks had stickers and a pre-order calendar so I faithfully mosied to the mall to check it out. I found the stickers and Twilight Sweethearts at Borders and the magnet set at Hot Topic. Less than two weeks, Twi-fans, ’til the revelry of the DVD release and midnight parties. I so can’t wait!
