Altered Journal





I just finished my latest project, and I had a blast doing it. It feels so good to get the creative juices flowing! I started out with a chipboard album and used some great 7 Gypsies papers to cover it. Then I took advantage of all of Tim Holtz's metals to embellish it, and the computer to add a custom book plate. I love inking around almost every edge, even the gaffer tape. It gives a great distressed look. I made a pocket in the front inside cover, for little memorablia to be tucked into. This is a present for a special someone, with lots of symbolism thrown in for him...hope he likes it!

Can't go wrong with Tim's metal stuff! It looks great, and I really like what you have done.

Plus congratulations on your new blog. I adore the background and header - so original, bright and cheerful, and I love your button too. Very nicely done indeed. I'll be visiting often!
