Altered Journals

After a conversation with my niece I knew I had to make a couple of journals for her to keep track of the things her kids say.  When I say the Unity kit with the little boy vest and little girl dress I knew I had to add that to the journals.
 
 
I started with a couple of Composition journals.  I wait for them to come on sale for a $1 at Staples then I pick up a selection.  I always have a hard time of do I get the ones with the lines or the graph paper, so I grab both. I made a separate journal for each of her kids.  

 
The doily is cut in half and is from another project so I don't know which products I used on it.  but I cut it in half and added to each journal.


I used foam tape behind the picture frame and matted it onto gray cardstock, then cut around leaving a little bit of gray frame.


Thanks for stopping by.
