altered note book.

Happy Saturday everyone,this is a new one for me.I have seen alot of people alter things but never got round to doing it.So i thought i`d do this for my sister as when we went up to see her,she didn`t have a pad to write her lists on and kept using scraps of paper.So i have used the pink papers out of the papermania henbury lane set,distressed the edges with scissors then went over them with worn lipstick distress ink.I stamped the gorgeous image from mo and coloured her with promarkers.Now i did use pink pens but it kinda looks abit purple.Then comes another new thing,the crackled glass effect.I used a holographic EP,i hadnt watched any tutorials on this i just tried to wing it as you say!Next time i will buy some clear and do another one.I then went over it with the worn lipstick,but it didn`t take to well.I think i will see a tut just to make sure i was doing it right,this may help hey!!!
The chipboard letters were embossed with white then sanded, distressed with worn lipstick,then embossed again with the holographic.Ideally i would of wanted to use crackle paint,but i haven`t got any so i was just playing with what i did have.Flowers are from wild orchid craft and swirl from marianne creatables.Pearls and gems from the hobby house and phew is that the lot!!!I think so.
Ok challenges.
