Me and my big....

hahaha - caught you're interest there?  I just want to show you my altered project for Magnolia Down Under Challenges 100th challenge which happens to be "Alter It".  This adorable little Tilda is "Tilda with Ponytail" and she was just perfect for this purpose. She looks like she is deep in thought.


I decided to alter a note book that I found at a local craft store months ago which has been sitting on my desk waiting for my attention. The note book was sitting all alone in a reduced bin for $2 waiting for me to come along and adopt it. I wanted a little book I could jot down ideas for sketches or projects to keep me organised and inspired when feeling a little lacking in the old mojo. However, Mr Mojo had gone walkies and I almost didn't finish altering my notebook in time for the challenge.

I covered the book with MME papers "Good Day Sunshine"  and gave the raw edges a coat of 'vanilla' acrylic paint.  The lace and ribbons on the binding are just little short bits I had left over from other projects that I couldn't bear to throw out, they came in handy afterall!  I raided my button collection for some cute little buttons and tied on some string. The little frame that Tilda is sitting on is just some heavy board that I cut with nesties and painted, distress inked and glittered. There is some cheesecloth and a paper doily too. The glitter heart is by Melissa Francis.

On the inside cover I have made a little envelope to collect little bits and pieces. You can also see the detail of the gorgeous paper a little better :)


I hope you have time to join our challenge this week! Tickled Pink Stamps are sponsoring the challenge with a fantastic prize of Fishing Tilda and the Easter issue of Magnolia Ink Magazine.

I would like to enter my notebook into these challenges:
