LESSology Challenge #1 - Altered Book


Hey peeps. I had a great day..i'm embracing my inner soul. Hahaha..u wonder what this rambling is all about. It's just that i used to be the accessories queen but ever since the kids and all, i always stick to my usual diamond ring, watch and the occasional silver, leather cord charm bracelet but i break the norm today. I had fun at Diva! Yup i was on fire! Hahaha..must be another hormonal case. I like what i buy and here's a pic of my purchase. Anyway lets get on with the purpose of this entry! lol.



Playing for LESSology first challenge. Here's my altered book inspired by my crafty friend Lynnda Hosni. After reading her entry here. First i had to peel the pages from the plastic cover. After which i applied gesso, mists and distress ink. I used a pattern paper to cover the front and back of the book and add flowers and other embellishment.


So what do u think? Ally was upset when she found out i altered her book! lol..she gave me the sad face but i told her i'll buy her a new ones soon! Wicked mommy!!! lol.

first, glad you had fun over at the Diva.

second, this altered book is so cantek, lovely indeed love the 2 slots for 2 photos. I have done one 2 months ago but halfway thru I throw the altered book. Just because I used thick book and so many pages to glue and it end up wrinkle when the glue dried and the book became like an arch so "project tak jalan" this one really nice with those embellishments are so you! lovely lovely, great altered book indeed and thanks for sharing. See you soon!

Ala, kesian Ally...
