I have not updated my English blog for couple month since I decided to focus and put energy more on my Thai blog. However I miss writing in English sometimes especially when I just wrote DIY tutorial for my Thai blog and would like to share them here.

I have been finding a planner that would fit my lifestyle for a while then I found Midori Traveler’s Notebook which is a notebook system that allow you to collect  smaller notebooks in one place. At first, I’m not sure if I would love it or not so I ended up DIY it. I found it so fun to created your own #Fauxdori. Now I got 3 Fauxdori and 10 small notebooks to put in my Fauxdori.

And to make my Fauxdori more interesting, I have an idea to decorate my A6 notebook that I put in my Fauxdori. I choose to decorate a notebook from MUJI that I planned to use it as “Idea book” to write down all ideas I have.

Before get started, you might need a few materiel to make it.

  1. Acrylic color
  2. E600 glue
  3. Cork
  4. Craft foam
  5. Brush
  6. Notebook

Since I didn’t know what color combination to use here, I tested them on paper first. Today I decided to go with pink neon and gold.

Let’s start the first start. I painted pink as background color and repainted again when first layer dry.

While waiting for color to dry, I draw star on craft foam. It could be anything. If you want small stamp, it shouldn’t be too detailed because we’re going to use acrylic color as stamp color. Then cut your drawing and glue it to a cork. Waiting for 5 minutes you will get a stamp!

Next step is the best part!

Use your brush to paint gold colour on your stamp instead of just dip it to colour so colour will not stick to star corner which you will not want it. Then stamp it! You can create pattern as you want.

BONUS!

You can paint front edge of a notebook with gold colour too! Don’t forget to using washi tape to masking your paper before painting it will help you shape your painting.
