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!
