Altered journal for my sister

 Hey everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely christmas! This is an altered journal I made for my sister Aghna for christmas. It is packed full of Tim Holtz goodies. I'm not putting up pics of every page because there was lots of pages in this one!

 This is the original journal book with chipboard covers & pages
 I used distress crackle paint along the binding side of the book, a Tim Holtz tag & for the title I used Tim Holtz lettering masks

 Inside front cover- Attached to the back of the tag chain from the front cover I used a graphic 45 envelope just for my note to Aghna
 For each alternating page throughout the book I used a mini Tim Holtz page-on this particular one I added crackle accents to one of the tags just to add interest
 I also used some prima flowers throughout which I glimmermisted in black chaclkboard
 On each of the original pages of the book I stamped an image from the Tim Holtz mini muse collection
 I also added in a pocket page covered with Tim Holtz papers
 This pull out mat & mini journal are from inside the envelope
 Back of the envelope
 Another larger envelope page I added into the book
 Pullout from the larger envelope with journalling paper & another prima flower
 Tim Holtz adage ticket & Prima!!
