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.
