Altered Notebook

Hi there πŸ™‚ It’s nearing the end of this month’s Aurora Wings ATG Facebook Challenge. We would love to see anything you’ve done with one of Mitzi’s images….old, new, complete project or even just a coloring πŸ™‚ There’s something for everyone in either of her stores ( here and Etsy), plus she has a sale going on on some fabulous images πŸ™‚ I chose to work with Winter Lullaby, found HERE in the digi store, and HERE on Etsy. I printed the image on kraft paper, and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils. After adding some accent touches with a white Posca pen and some sponged gold and silver ink, I set it aside to work on the rest of the project.

I have so many things on my “alterable” shelves, that I figured it was high time to do something with one of them. I chose a notebook that I picked up at the dollar store, it’s made well, but had an uuuuugggggllly cover!! First, I trimmed a piece of dark plum CS to fit the cover, inked the edges, and sprinkled some chunky silver embossing powder on it and heated it up. Then, I took another piece of kraft which I stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder before die cutting the corners with a Tim Holtz die. I finished this piece off by inking the edges with Distress ink. I cut 2 corner pieces with a die from Cheery Lynn. I then layered everything up, placing a distressed piece of the dark plum CS at an angle under the image. A few small silver blingies finished this project off.

I’d like to enter the following challenges with this:
