Altered Journal - Imagine If DT Project

Here I am again with the first Imagine If DT project for 2015, using up some of the leftovers and other pieces that Jo sent us in out Design Team parcels last year.  Before I get started on the project I would like to announce that Jo at Imagine If has asked us to let everyone know that each DT member has a prize pack to giveaway, which has a value of $20.00 and consists of beach words and things.  All you have to do to be in the draw is to comment on this blog on my project and "like" the Imagine If facebook page . Good luck to everyone who enters the giveaway. It is a great prize.  Here is a picture of the prize you could win.

My project this week is a  little journal made from a recycled book and since I loved the horse with wings I made to put in the Mini album I made and I had another horse I decided to make another one for the front of the cover.

Firstly I took the pages out of the book.  

I then covered the outside with tissue paper and painted everything black.

Using the leftover chipboard pieces from the Advent Calendar I painted them black, covered them with aluminium tape,ran them through the embossing folder and glued them to the front of the book.

I then painted the horse and the circle frame black and embossed them. In the end I used a heart instead of the star pictured below.  I dry brushed them with silver paint, die cut the wings and a Tim Holtz clock, painted some keys and the chipboard word "Live" from Imagine If and assembled them on the front cover.

I also 
made a little charm using an Imagine If chipboard gear and a small chipboard unicorn along with some metal gears.  This was added to the spine of the journal after I sewed in the signatures.

Hope you like this little project and again good luck with the giveaway.
