Revamp A Planner Lavinia Style

 Hello lovely people,  I made several Diaries and Notebooks for Christmas pressies for family members and thought I would share one of my creations with you!  This is a Planner/Diary my sister asked me to make for her.  She had quite a  brief such as locked in sparkle so it didn't shed in her bag, a colour palette of her preferred colours, a pocket in the back and a matching back cover.  She did provide me with the planner she wanted altering, so there is photo's below of what I did.

So using the planner below, as you can see I painted the spine in metallic Acrylic paint before covering the front and back cover.

I started by doing some backgrounds using sprays (see recipe below for a full list of products), I made sure the front and back covers matched with the same colours.  So then doing the front I created a moon using some Gesso, I stamped my main images in Versafine Clair ink, once they were in place I started adding the hills by using a mask and the foliage and trees.  Once my scene was set I added highlights and then lots of sparkle.  The back cover was created pretty much the same way.  To seal in the glitters I sprayed each one in Crafters Companions Spray and Shine.  Here's the back cover:-

I hope you all have a nice relaxing day, I've got to get my son ready to go back to school tomorrow, starting with a haircut.
