Little Notebook

After stamping and watercolouring the octopus image, my paper was so warped that I almost threw it away. Then I had a light-bulb moment realising that all it really needed was a good firm base and some strong glue to hold it flat. My answer? Chipboard!

At this stage it was still my intention to use the octopus on a card. If I'd have thought a little further ahead I would have realised that the chipboard would be much too heavy for a card. But since I didn't think ahead I ended up with a piece of chipboard decorated with a watercolour octopus that was of no use for a card. What to do now? Believe it or not, I had a second light-bulb moment (I'm pretty sure that's it for the rest of the year) and a little notebook came into being.

It was between these two photos when I realised my
octopus would be much too heavy for a card.
