The Monday weekly challenge for #SimonSaysStamp blog http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com is any craft that begins with an “A”. I created an altered mini-journal for my “A” challenge submission. The background paper was created with blended distress ink #rangerinks. and stencils #rangerstencils. I added a vintage black and white photo that I colored with distress inks, textured rick rack ribbon and embossed two corners with textured embossing powder. A small piece of dictionary page, a word banner and a glossy accent tiny heart complete the altered cover. Time to start writing!
