♥ Basic Grey - Textures

The challenge over at Basic Grey this week is...Textures!
''For this weeks challenge we would like to see some texture on your creations, texture can be achieved is so many ways, but to name a few to give you some ideas, how about heat embossing, dry embossing, flock, felt, glitter, glossy accents, the list could go on...''......
I was in much need of a new 'notebook'. Just for scribbling down things that my little brain cell can't remember on it's own. The last one ( a fabby pressie from Shaz) is full and now has sheets of paper folded up inside which keep falling out! So a perfect time to make a new one. I should have taken a 'before' and 'after' photo but I was busily sticking paper to the cover before I remembered! Doh!
Anyway...it was a 'reduced to 98p', stripy, hard covered notebook with heaps of pages in it...so hopefully it'll last me a while! :0)Papers - Basic Grey - Sugared
Lettering - Basic Grey - Sugared
Inside covers - Basic Grey - Two Scoops (thanks Shaz x)
Edges - Krylon Gold pen
Image - Sugar Nellie - Gorjuss Girls (thanks Tina)
Flowers - Prima
Beads, embellishments and ribbons - from stash
