Altered Diary :)

Hello, there fellow bloggers!
I have a very different project today to share with you that is not my usual style of jewelry or cardmaking. I had a request from my sister to revamp one of the year diaries that was looking too bland. So here is how it is transformed into!

For the base, I applied texture paste to the front and spine of the diary and let to dry. Meantime I took a pattern paper and tore off the edges and distressed it using brown chalk inks and adhered it to the centre. The rest of the white space was stenciled with MFT stencils and same chalk inks.

For the corners, I have used two doilies distressed with picked raspberry DIs and added two cute doggies from CraftyScrappers stamp set that was sent over oh so sweetly by Konica!.
For the focal panel I die cut a frame and embossed the word DOLLY using Hero Arts Platinum Embossing powder followed by Ranger UTTE.

The spine was then painted in brown acrylics and the back of the diary was kept simple with a vintage pattern paper.

So how do you guys like this!!

1. Ranger UTTE

  1. That's a really lovely project. However, I am not sure I am spotting any of the Mudra products incorporated in it? Please remember that if you want to play along with the Mudra challenge, you need to use one of Mudra products. Do let me know if I missed it? :-)
