Reflection Altered Journal

This is my second altered journal that I made over the weekend. I call it Reflection.The colors are all soft tans and greens with a bit of black.

Reflection Altered Art Journal


Again I used some cardstock 12x12 paper that I cut to size and Mod Podged to the composition book cover for the background.  The background paper has a distressed and worn look about it, which I love. I then tore out a piece of another piece of cardstock paper to work as a background to my vintage fairy photo. On top of that I created yet another layer of paper, but instead of torn edges I used some paper edger scissors for a different edge effect. After gluing them all in place, I added the "reflection" sentiment. Then I added the fairy image, to make her appear to be sitting on the paper strip with the sentiment. Then I created the layered fabric flower and attached that with a brad, after punching a hole through the journal cover.

I think I may do a Halloween themed journal for the next one. I know it's early, but hey, is it really ever too early to get your witchy-ness on?!
