" Dream Journal" for June 'Arts a Flutter

Here is a a 8" x 6" Altered Book..I needed a little break from clay..LOL.
This book is natural brown paper inside. I covered the front & back using various papers, inks, words..I used vintage typewriter keys to spell out the word "Dream"..I also used Tim Holtz "grungeboard" for the swirls at 2 corners and for the wings ( I Love Grungeboard)...
I also used green glass glitter, and some of Annies green vintage seam binding. The inside pages are mostly blank, I have ran some inks over some of them and added a few inspirational words here and there..But left plenty of room for Journaling. This book will be available on ' Arts a Flutter, June 1sy!

Hi Robin...
I don't know how to describe Grungeboard except tp say , you must try it..LOL.It can be painted ,inked, sanded etc..and it's very pliable yet strong :)..
Look it up on the Tim Holtz website! You'll want some! :)
