Altered spiral notebook

I can't live without my spiral notebook at work.  It's with me at all times and I usually start a new one every three months.  Why, I ask, should it be plain and boring??  It shouldn't!
The girl image is colored with colored pencils and was a free download from e-crafting. If you're not a subscriber, you're missing out!  Wings are from Tim Holtz and stamped on newspaper.  I used some Prima flowers and a Sizzix die cut from an old dictionary.  Added some bling, Stickles, an old heart shaped doily and lots of Glimmer Mist.  The background paper is from My Mind's Eye.

I used Mod Podge as my adhesive and am, again, disappointed.  I want to love it but have bumpy, wrinkled results every time.

Overall, I think it came out pretty nice.


  1. Beautiful work on this notebook.
    Love how you used the doily and made the flowers
