Altered Notebook

Challenge 31
Alter Something is our new theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges for the next fortnight.
Please pop over for all the details. my team mates have some fantastic projects to share with you.
We do ask that you remember to show us some stamping in your entry.

First of all the cover was painted with  cream acrylic matt emulsion tester pots from DIY shops are great for this. Then the Distress inks blended over the surface, shabby shutters, peeled paint and wild honey.
The background stamping is a selection of clock images by Paper Artsy.
The Sizzix die cut clock Tick Tock] was covered with Yorkshire Dales flakes [from Indigo Blu].
Sitting on the clock pointer is an image from Stampotique, she looks quite comfortable to me.

This is another scheduled post, thank you for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated.


  1. Lovely alteration, love your clock, too! Valerie

  2. Hi Meggymay...The altered notebook looks sooo different to the original. The finished look is so relaxing to look at. I love the combination of these DI inks, they really work well together here.
