Hi there! I just wanted to share a quick DIY I did a while ago. I had found these blank little notebooks and wanted to create some kind of fun pattern. I’ve been seeing (stupid pun intended) a lot of snazzy eye-patterns around lately, so I was inspired!
To be honest, I’ve been working digitally for so long that I started missing drawing by hand, so I may share some more DIY’s now and then (though working “analogue” is not always my strongest skill, so bear with me). Here are the steps:
- Find a blank notebook.
- Use a (spray)paint of your own choice and spray/paint the notebook cover very lightly.
- Let it dry for about 10 minutes.
- Draw on your pattern with black acrylic paint.
- Let it dry once more and you’re done!
Once completely dry, you might want to spray on an additional type of protective transparent layer, but I didn’t have any available, so I didn’t (and it’s holding pretty well still)!
