Altered Strawberry Kisses Journal

Hi all!  I'm sharing a fun altered journal today on the Crafter's Companion blog.  I'm starting this post with a picture of the finished product, but don't worry, I'll tell you exactly how I made the journal.  This project features Friends Forever from the Strawberry Kisses collection.  I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers.

I purchased this mini-Composition book from a local craft store.  I thought it would be fun to alter into a journal.  I didn't worry too much about what it looked like before I started.

I added washi tape to the binding.  Luckily, I had washi tape in the colors I was going to use for my project (black/white - plus pink).  I covered the whole blue binding by overlapping the tape.  You could also use a funky duck tape and you wouldn't have to use multiple tape strips.

I covered the front, back and inside covers with pink cardstock.  Then I started decorating.  I added black cardstock and added sparkly ribbon to my black/white/sparkly patterned paper.

I'd like to enter this project in the following challenges:
1. Really Reasonable Ribbon #46 - black and white plus one accent color
2. Paper Sundaes #116 - anything goes
3. Stamptacular Sunday #159 - freebie week
4. Divas By Design #31 - anything but a card

Don't forget, you have until tonight to enter the giveaway on the Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog.  Be sure to stop by my blog or the Crafter's Companion blog tomorrow to get all the details on the scavenger hunt blog hop.  There will be AMAZING prizes! {Open to US residents only}

Happy Crafting!
