Mini book- school days

I Love finding different things to alter. In this case a mini composition book.
Stamped the image from Artistic Outpost on tissue paper
then used multi medium to collage the background papers, some of Tim's tissue tape.
Then added a metal corner and a vintage pen nib. Easy Peasy!
Leave a comment if you would like this little book and I'll
draw a # on Sunday and send it to someone!
