Altered Journal Design Team Project for Purplefuntastick Creations

Today our project for Purplefuntastick Creations Design Team was to create an altered journal using our 3-D flower that we had made previously.

Journal from the Dollar Store --- gotta love it!
Vintage Pin-ups from Far Away Hill
Crystal butterfly
Embossed ribbon on her hair
Stickles to outline her hair
Decorative pearl strand to outline the pin-up on the front
Crystal gem spray from Michael's Dollar Bin --- gotta love it!!
Flat lace from stash
Paper from a $5 paper pack from Walmart - bargains!!!
Butterfly embossed and then inked for that funky look
Blue ribbon from stash
My 3-D flower is on her head-band

I love my funky butterflies and must tell you what I was thinking let alone doing -I embossed these butterflies and these were my first attempts -- got my ink stamps and inked the edges and just kept layering the colors and they came out with this funky tie-died look but still look vintage!

My altered journal actually came to me last night when I couldn't sleep due to fibro not being my friend -- ok, I hear you laughing but honest, it did. I knew I wanted to do something with a vintage flair. I'm hoping you like my vintage chicky Lynnie look and would love to hear your comments!!

Our next challenge for the Purplies project is going to be to create something from a sketch --- come check it on March 1,2012 - sure to be a great project, at least I'm hoping!!

Here's the other Design Team Members -- please go and visit and show some bloggie love as to their projects!
