Hello one and all,

Well it is nearly the New Year and if you are anything like me, a little time on your hands to tackle some new projects.


For you today, I have altered a children's picture book that I picked up at my local 'Op' Shop.  I applied this beautiful Collection 'Paris Chic' mixed  with a few  small elements from other of Meg's Garden Collections,  such as , Watercolours Garden, French Chic, Spring Pastels and Parisian Gardens. 
 I also added book pages, along with music sheets to Meg's Collections.

 For the edges of the book itself I used Atlantic Versa ink, which I always find a perfect match for some of these papers.   To the cut and create items I applied a little Inca Gold to the edges, which gives them a vintage feel.

 Finally some well placed doilies and here is the front cover.
 Meg's Gardens beautiful ribbon lace with chiffon ribbon, all teamed with  Lock and keyhole.

As you would have noticed in my last month's post, this journal pack is jammed pack with lots of paper, so I set about making up some cards for my stash.

 Now for a close up of the special extra ribbons and metal embellishments from Meg's Garden.

 Well I hope you have been inspired to get creative over the holidays and remember to 'think outside the box' for altering simple items.
Thanks for taking the time to look and until next time.......Happy New Year  ......Love Liz
