Altered Summertime Scrapbook Journal

Last year I found a guest book in the John Lewis sale. It had bright and cheerful beach huts on it, so of course I couldn't resist!

I decided to alter the guest book into a summer scrapbook journal.

I started by adding some texture paste to give the appearance of sand, and then I used watercolours over the top.

The girl is a Phyliss Harris stamp which I also coloured with water colours. I used some pink thread to create the flowing ribbons on her hat.

I glued some real shells onto the bottom of the cover, and finished by laying a ribbon down the side .

The inside pages all had titles on them, but these were easily covered with papers.

I hope I have inspired you to have some fun, and create something for this months challenge at Mixed Media Mojo which is "Summertime" and the Twist is Shells which you can use if you wish.
