  1. Cover the front of a notebook with assorted rectangles of heavyweight card and attach a few screw head brads.
  2. Die-cut the three gears from mount board and trim to size before mounting onto the notebook as shown.
  3. Paint the notebook cover with a dark brown acrylic. Blend some grey and deep red paint onto the cover, apply with a sea sponge for a more random effect.
  4. Use the same sponge to apply the lighter shades (greens, oranges and blues).
  5. Once the paint has dried, apply a little gilding wax to enhance the detail in certain areas.
  6. Take one of the metal word bands and apply various alcohol inks to give a distressed, weathered appearance. Attach to the notebook with thin wire.
  7. Finally, use the gilding wax to bring out the raised detail of the die-cut gears.
