Altered Art Note Book

Hello all. What lovely weather we are all having. The garden is full of wonderful flowers so my garden is my inspiration for my project. Below I have decorated a Note Book for writing all of my ideas for craft making.

The main topper (Tilda) has been coloured in using Distress Markers. Around the edge I have distressed and used frantage to give the topper abit of depth. I have stitched around the edge using a zegzag stitch. The diecuts I have used are Lala land banner and Joy crafts film strip. For extra embelishments I used Lace, ribbon and pearls. In the corner there is a white dove which I have made using Martha Stewart clay. For the added touch I have used purple mulberry flowers in the corner.
