VideoTutorial: Altered Weekly Planner Cover

Hello to everyone, Giovanna here, and today my story and my artwork is all about friendship and cats.
When I moved to Milan, last year, I met a wonderful person, that later she became a true friend, that opened her house to me for a couple of weeks. She has also two wonderful furry friends, a large ginger cat and a sweet mackerel cat. At the beginning of 2017 I was again struggling with personal issues, and she came to rescue me, again. Now that I leaving Milan to come back home, I made a little gift for her, featuring, obviously, cats. Ok, we are a couple of crazy cat ladies, no way.
She daily use a weekly planner on her desk with a plastic cover, so I redo it a little bit. Hope she likes it!
Here's the video tutorial, you can apply this technique to any no-porous surface, like plastic or metal or glass.

Let me introduce you those little fellows, Leo and Pippa (Birba for friends):
