Below are two journals I have altered by covering in papers I got from Lakeland and some assorted threads and ribbons.
Above is the front of the book I added 3 flowers and put small buttons on top of the flowers and just cut a butterfly and a 'Z' out which I put some green and red glitter glue on.
This is just the inside cover and the bookmark which I used a 'Z' again.
This is the front of the book which I put3 pink buttons and a dragonfly charm and just added a 'J' and some jewel brads.
Again this shows the inside cover and the bookmark.
