Friends with Flair...June 19, 2015

Hey there Everybody!  I just love altering journals.  I have been busy creating a wedding guest book and this journal I am about to share with you.  I still have a bit to do on the guest book, but when it's complete, I will post it.  This journal actually came together pretty fast.  I created a similar page in the guest book, but with a neutral palette.  For the journal I mixed gesso and Dylusions vibrant turquoise paint.  I applied this mixture to the cover of a black Piccadilly memo book.  I have altered Moleskines before, but never a Piccadilly.  This memo book has a soft, vinyl like cover; has 100 pages and an inner pocket.  It features sewn binding.  These flowers are very large.  The memo book measures 5" x 8".  So now, you get an idea of how large these flowers really are.  Both flowers and the sentiment come from a Unity Stamp Co. set called wild & free.  The pink paint is also Dylusions, bubble gum pink, and the yellow is Dylusions as well, lemon zest.  The flowers and sentiment were stamped in black Staz On ink.  I am entering this notebook in Friends with Flair over on the Unity blog.  Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing week-end.  Here are the pics:
