Altered Journal

the theme for this weeks challenge at the Three Muses is Wings on Things, so I made an altered journal with some cute swallows on the front. I covered the journal with some old wrapping paper,glued on some lace,buttons,hearts,charms and odd scraps along with the birds.
Thanks so much for looking,Happy Wednesday!!

I am always in awe of artists able to do mixed media journals and may I say I am in total awe of this one. Nice work.

What a beautiful little journal. I would like to know how it's assembled. My local art group made "junk journals" (from cereal boxes, etc.) and it was great fun, and I know that there are a number of ways of assembling them. This cover is delicate and lovely. Thanks for sharing it with us!
