Altered Journal Project


So I love to alter things, right?  One of my favorite things to alter is a journal.  There is just something about creating a special book to write in that excites me.  This is my latest altered journal made with some pre-made embellishments and a beautiful Cricut layered butterfly?  Notice the swirled design on the butterfly?  The top layer is cut from a transparency and then stamped with permanent brown ink on the transparency.  I also added wire antennae's to my butterfly using some copper wire.  I think the more textures you can add to a project the more interesting the project is!

I also used some Prima bling on the journal along with a fabric covered button by K and Company.  So many fun elements on this journal.  This is actually the journal I took with me to CHA so I could keep notes in about my meetings with manufactuers. 

Remember to watch Craft Test Dummies for my posts from the show!  Don't worry, I will remind you here as well as on my Facebook and Twitter pages!
