Gorjuss Notebook

Something other than a card today, a little notebook, featuring a Gorjuss girl in shades of purple for Fibromyalgia Awareness.
 The notebook started off as a bare chipboard blank; I covered it with purple pearl card on the outside and patterned purple paper on the inside.  I used torn scraps of Papermania Capsule Collection papers in Heather (I used a sheet of this on the inside too) on the front cover, and stamped and heat embossed a Sheena Douglass sentiment with purple glitter embossing powder.  I used the same paper to add some tiny punched butterflies.  The edges of the book were rubbed with Imagination Crafts Alchemy Wax in Silver to cover the bare board and add a bit of shimmer.
The Gorjuss girl was made with my new Xcut die set, all the pieces are simply die cut, embossed and layered up.  I used papers from a Papermania Gorjuss paper pack, and added some seed beads for eyes and a little coloured pencil for rosy cheeks.
The notebook is held together with metal rings, so, to decorate these, and, as a nod to the Fibromyalgia purple ribbon, I knotted on a selection of different purple ribbons.
