Altered notebook

Today I have an altered notebook that I would like to share. 

I was inspired by this month's mood board over at Dusty Attic

Ironically enough, I had a Dusty Attic notebook sitting in my stash just waiting for some paint and chippies.

How did I do?

I made the background using one of those Tattered Angels paint systems. Remember when we all just HAD to have them? Yeah I finally bust one out to mimic the barn in the photo. The bauble on the side is a cork from my collection of corks. Yes girls....you know you have them. I've always wanted to make SOMETHING with them and this is as good as anything else right?

The butterfly is a spellbinders die and is cut from the metal sheets from Add A Little Dazzle. 

I wanted lots of layers and goopiness and stampiness and just good fun. And of course....I love to layer my canvas.

The clock is a DA chippie that I have been hoarding and I've covered it in Lindy's embossing powder in Spanish Moss gold.

Since notebooks get a lot of wear and tear on the back cover, I used the paint and left it plain

well, about as plain as THIS FABULOUSNESS CAN BE!!!!

Hope you enjoyed my latest and greatest. If you're looking for a little inspiration, check out the monthly mood board at Dusty Attic.
