Hey there crafters, It is Sunday today, anddddd you know what that means....

Today there WE HAVE a brand new challenge over at the 

Our generous sponsor is Premium Art Brands and wow she has a fabulous prize for one winner 

The theme for the challenge is


This is what I have made......

I made a Notebook for the daughter of my colleque, she is an intern in Costa Rica and now she has a little notebook where she can write her adventures in....

the Front of the Notebook was made with Gesso, second layer is Light Modelling Paste.

I worked with a stencil to create the background.  The 3th layer is Crackle and after this was dry I worked on the Notebook with the White Coarse PanPastel and the Black Pearlescent Pan.

What the crackle combined with PanPastel does is give the background a nice crackled look. You can see the tiny cracks they are filled up with the PanPastels.

And this is what it looks like from upclose....can you see all the tiny crackles....I just love the way it came out and what the two products combined are doing on paper 

This is the backside of the Notebook. This was made the same way I did the front With Gesso Light Modelling Paste and a stencil. Crackle on top and when that was dry I Painted Matt Gel Medium on top.

So the last thing I did on the front was, place the drawing of  the girl and underneith the Costa Rica letters. They were stamped on paper and than I cut the letters out of the paper and placed them on the Notebook.

On the inside of the Notebook I stamped 2016, since it is the year 2016 when my colleques daughter is an intern and is going on a Journey to Costa Rica. 

So Laura is on an adventure now and if you want to go on an adventure I suggest you come over to 

And join into the fun and you can even win a fabby prize.....while your there you can see my amaazing teamies creations too....it really is worth your while to visit their individual blogs guys......so don't wait any longer and come on over ......
