Atered notebook

The new Friday night challenge over at the Just Bex forum was to alter a notebook. Now I'm not a great fan of altered art, it just doesn't 'do it' for me but I don't mind covering notebooks. It must be a throw back from when I was at school when our homework for the first week of a new term was to back all our excercise books! A lot of kids used to used off cuts of wallpaper but mine were always done with pages of 'Jackie' magazine. (no "age" jokes please-I am aware of how old I am ;))

Anyway, mine started off as this

and ended up like this

Papers are Dovecraft Charcoal prints, chipboard letter is cut from a cereal packet 3 times, glued together and painted with household emulsion then coated with Diamond glaze and the ric rac, brads and Primas are from stash.

Must go and dry my hair as it will be all stuck up if I go to bed with it damp.
