Altered Journal – Joanne Simmons

Hello!  Wow!  How nice is this months moodboard??

I have created an altered notebook.

To start I used one of my embellishments.  I like to make these up just for fun and then add them to a page or card.  This is what I started withSo I created this embellishment using a chipboard doily as my base and then adding the broken numbers, bits of the heart attack panel then a flourish.  I did change the blossom as you will see in the pic.
Next I covered my notebook.  I painted it first with some extra body acrylic paint.  Added a little extra texture using the gradient texture stencil.  I then added some wax over the top.
Before I added my embellishment I added some perforated mesh.
Finally I added my embellishment and splattered with white paint
Here are some close ups
