Altered Notebook - Marion Smith Designs Nirvana Collection

Wow - It has already been a week since I was appointed on Marion's Design team, and I'm still pinching myself.  Our first challenge was to alter a notebook, book, or binder in honor of back to school.  I was so excited to use her New Nirvana printed lines that will be shipping to retailers in just a few weeks. 
For my project I decided to alter a three ring notebook.  I'm a total list maker, so I thought this would be a great tool to have around.  I really wanted my cover to stay kind of flat so that it didn't take up too much shelf space, but I wanted it to be PRETTY!  Nirvana certainly helped there!

I started with one of these notebooks from Target.
I gessoed the edges of the notebook, and painted it gold.  Then lined the notebook inside and out with the Nirvana Bliss & Documented papers.   I love how easy the cover came together with the Nirvana ephemera pages. 
Thanks for stopping in today,
