Ahoy!! Tilda

Good morning my friends, i have an altered item i would like to share with you all.
I started with an ordinary notebook and layered it with punched card and paper. I then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Paint and added some metal corners. I also made a bookmark to match and used the same MS PATP, card and paper and distressed the edges also. I added buttons and bows to both, on the book and bookmark, the images i coloured with Promarkers and i punched out holes and added eyelets and layered onto cheesecloth and card. I tied the book closed with some lace and added some pearls and a metal seahorse. Finished off with some matting and layering at the top and added some diecut letters. I hope you like them!!

Here are a few pictures!!
