My Altered Creation

Hello peeps hope you are all fine & dandy. This is gonna have to be a really quick post cus its nearly 1 0'clock in the morn & I'm tired & running really late tonight. I'm running late cus we have had family up from Manchester & over from Australia.....really worth running late for it was fab seeing every1. Anyway onto this creation I have made an altered book which is actually a 1st for me, I've never altered anything to be honest!! I brought some LOTV stamps last week so thought I would ink this image up & use this on my book cus she is so cute & it sort of fit the theme.....altho none of this project has actually gone to plan, but I will try harder next time. Here is the image....

Isn't she adorable wearing her mummy's hat & shoes along with her bag as well, she even has everyhting colour co-ordinated.....thats my kind of girl lol. She is of course coloured with Promarkers & the nestie that she is on is distressed with Worn Lipstick distress ink.

This is the front of the book. All of the papers used are from K&Co & they have been distressed with my little distressing tool. The flowers, ribbon & buttons are from little shops on Ebay & the love heart is from my jewellery stash.

This is the inside of the book, the middle has been cut out & all the pages glued together around the edge. It has been covered in K&Co paper again which has been distressed with Worn Lipstick ink & Tumbled Glass ink. The idea is that Mummy has made her little girl a secret treasure trove inside a book which is just hers. There is little charms & chains & flowers & pearls, all the things that little girls love. All of which is from my jewellery making stash. There is even a mini bag & hat in there.

This is the front & back & for the edges I used the paper which I cut out of the middle, I inked them up again with Worn Lipstick. I have put all the rest in a container cus I know it will come in handy for other creations.

This is the inside back cover which I thought once it was covered in paper it should be left like that. This book is going to sit on my daughters dressing table when her bedroom is re-decorated. I initially made this project for PFP whose theme is Distressing, well there is certainly plenty of that on this lol. Well thats it from me hope you like what I have made I certainly honor all your comments good or bad. Thankyou to all that spare the time to look at my little blog I appreciate it very much, hugs to all that visit me <>

Take care byed-d-bye.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx - Distressing - Anything but square (hope this counts) - Anything goes (2nd entry) - Something flowery - Vintage - Anything goes (2nd entry)
