Birthday Journal

I recently was made a trade for a vintage children's dictionary (Thanks, Laura!) and I have been working on this project off and on for a few days. I just love the pages of the dictionary they have cute little pictures on every page. This journal will be for a birthday coming up in October. I made the flowers using satin and a candle flame. I added some big bling to each of them and some felt leaves. I had the metal frame in my stash and I used some sandpaper to sand off some of the paint so that it would match the bling a little better.
I added a butterfly rub-on to a Tim Holtz fragment charm.
