My new diary...

Being a teacher my mind is slowly starting to turn toward the beginning of the new term, and so one thing I needed to do was get a new diary, as you probably know academic diaries run from July to August the following year. So off I went and got myself a new diary, a cheap black one. It looked so boring and uninviting that I decided to alter it. Hopefully that way I will actually remember to look in it to keep track of things.

Don't forget to come back tomorrow when I will post some new freebies.

It turned out beautifully! Hmm, maybe if I did something pretty with my diary I would remember to look in it more too, lol. I am terrible about that! I'm sure you will get many comments and questions from the other teachers about your lovely diary!

Altering a cheap diary is so satisfying, hope its large enough to enter all your school commitments. Great cover, enjoy the weekend, Annette x
oops nearly forgot to answer your question from today. The background was a combination of Gesso and inks using a roller.

Definitely looks better than my bright purple one! Can't face looking at it yet (for so many reasons currently) but as and when that time comes this could be a fun thing to do with it! Hugs, Buttons x

Your new cover is fantastic Astrid, I love the watch on your flower, the added lace, and the shine- love how you added shadows from the tag and bird, so beautiful.
Greetings from Dorthe

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
