I started by brayering different coloured acrylic paint onto a piece of copy paper and stenciled some leaves with acrylic paint, I lightly drew round the leaves with a black pencil.
After covering the notebook I added some frayed fabric and a piece of a Sizzix die cut with some ribbon threaded through it.
The image was stamped onto coloured card two times and I fussy cut one of the butterflies and covered it with stickles.
I embellished the cover with a couple of stick pins that I'd made, some roses and some tiny butterfly charms.
I'd like to link my notebook to the following challenges.
Artist Trading Post Exchange Anything Mixed Media Goes.
Altered Eclectics Anything Goes.
Rhedd's Creative Spirit Halloween or Not.
This is the notebook before I altered it.
I then covered the notebook with the paper.
This is the back of the book. I'm not sure who made The Indian Butterfly Legend stamp.
