My Journal using Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante Papers

Happy new Year to all of you. Today I am going to share with you the journal I altered using the Christmas present my friend Jessica ( owner of Scraptastic Club) sent me. She sent me Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante paper pad and some Timholtz idea-o-logy Foliage.

I have been dying to play with this line every since I saw it come out and could not find it anywhere around here. I am ever so grateful to jessica and her generosity for the present she sent me. Can I just say I just LOVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEE this paper line. I absolutely adore it.

I was at a dollar store the other day and came across this journal for 2 bux I didn't like the way it looked and new I was going to alter it with my new papers. I have a pic of the before and after of the journal I still may add more to it not sure yet... I also used Tim Holtz distress inks on it the Fired Brick, VintagePhoto, and Weathered Wood to give it a true vintage feel. I also sanded the papers to distress them a bit. I also used some Chipboard letters to create my name and I used Tim Holtz Broken China Crackle paint and , Vintage Photo distress ink and Lime Green Stickles as well on the letters.

Well here are the photos let me know what you think. I think there is something missing off the back but I'm not sure what i want to put on it. I also am working on the inside covers as well.

Such a beautiful collage on the back of your altered journal. And the broken china really makes the title pop. Hope you'll come over and link up to my victorian fantasy challenge inspired by Steampunk Debutante.
