hello my friends
today I'm sharing my altered journal I made with the papers from
I found this lovely little book at a book stall
it was a very good price
$3.00 bargain !!!!
I glued four pages together then tore out seven to allow room for added embellishments
then painted all pages with gesso
I covered the book with selected papers , then the spine , trimming the join with cream lace & pink ribbon, then added a coloured metal butterfly
inside cover & facing page have random stamping, a sticker frame from my stash
& a fussy cut butterfly
paper, lace, doilies, ribbon, beads & fussy cut butterflies
"TURN YOUR CANT'S INTO CANS & DREAMS INTO PLANS'
Fussy cut hydrangeas, doilies, mesh ribbon, beads & tied bow with tails
'GO CONFIDENTLY IN THE DIRECTION OF YOUR DREAMS'
Papers, scrap of Valencia lace, cream ribbon & fussy cut flowers
'EVERYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE IS REAL'
Striped paper, fussy cut lavender, beads, ribbon, laces & muslin
'AND LIVE THE LIFE YOU HAVE IMAGINED'
I really enjoy making journals with uplifting quotes to give as gifts
