Altered Mini Book

Post by kt_dragonfly on Mon 6 Jul 2009 - 22:07

Mum bought this book for me ages ago & I finally got round to covering it yesterday. Used an idea that was in my craft magazine to add an acetate front to it & have decorated on both the cover & the acetate layer.

Of course not got a clue what to do with it now! Thinking

That's lovely, Kate. Is it plain paper inside? With that on the cover it would be an ideal book to put crafting ideas in: bit like a sketch book but for notes as well.

Ha. Lynda beat me to it. Mr Green
Yep, a crafting book. I have one and when I get an idea, I write it down to remind me to try it sometime. I also do a rough job of my sketches in it before doing them for upload.
(which reminds me, I haven't done July's, tsk, tsk).

It looks great, Kate. Love the acetate. Mr Green

1...not forget about it
2...will not lose the instructions
3...have something to do when the inspiration has left you

very pretty and great idea to use it as a craft book, I scribble in a note book so one like this would look much nicer.

lovely job youve done there Kt. write down some ambitions, dreams, hopes - one on each page and decorate the page. When you feel down you can flick though it and keep yourslef on track.

It's lovely, liking the ideas above, especially the ideas one as it has 'dreams' on the front.
