Sunday, March 6, 2011 TUIC Challenges - Altered Notebook

Christy of Lone Pine Designs was one of our hostesses for our blog group's, Tangled Up in Creativity, challenges for the month of February.  Please visit her blog, here.  This time we were to alter a notebook.  This was a cute journal I found in Michael's $1 bin.  The original cover had a picture of a wheel barrow filled with gardening tools and plants.  I decided to make it cuter with this little gardener image.  I believe she came from an image swap.  I colored her with a combination if Bic Permanent and Copic Markers.  
Here's a close-up of the image:

  2. What a terrific journal. It would be good to keep a record of what you put in your garden because if you are like me you buy the same plant a number of times!

  6. Monica your paper and image is just perfect for this Challenge. I think everyone likes to get out into the garden at the start of spring and see if they can get something to grow. Great Job.

  15. Hi Monica!

    I love altering journals...but your amazing coloring really made this incredible! I love the image...so cute! That flower really pops!
    You were really thinking when you took the back-ground of the journal and chose an image to match it...rather than repapering the whole journal! WTG!
