Little Birdie Crafts Succulent Garden Altered Journal Tutorial
Hello, Friends! Do you have a boring old notebook or journal lying around the house? Not very inspiring to write in, is it? Today’s Little Birdie Crafts Succulent Garden Altered Journal Tutorial will show you how to take a journal from blah and boring to fun and fabulous in no time!
I snagged this 8″ x 10″ faux leather journal off a clearance shelf at a local Tuesday Morning. It was great quality…but kind of ho hum in appearance. The perfect piece to alter!
First, I stenciled the cover with a design from Little Birdie Crafts and some LB Sparkle Paste. Then I added paint, burlap, distressed papers, fussy cut images and of course, gorgeous florals to really dress it up.
My floral cascade is made with a mix of succulents, beaded flowers, tiny petals and gorgeous foliage, all from Little Birdie Crafts.
Chipboard, sisal fibre, fussy cut elements and some wood letter tiles make all the difference. Now this journal is pretty enough to have out on display! It would also make a wonderful gift for someone who loves to garden.
Would you like to learn how to alter your own boring journal? Then just watch this YouTube video to learn how.
