If you've been visiting my blog for a while, you know I love steampunk. I found a class presented by Kelly Hoernig who is teaching five projects that include steampunk elements.
This first week lesson was painting a cheap composition notebook to give it the look of leather, and add an animal and some gears and things to give it a steampunk look. Kelly actually demonstrated painting a squirrel, but I wanted to use a mouse instead. I'm really happy with the way my notebook turned out! It definitely doesn't look like a drugstore composition notebook.
