altered tin notebook

So here I am still on the theme of notebooks or notepads whatever you want to call them.
I bought a few of the tin notebooks in the january sales, you know the sort they have a thin metal cover usually a gold colour, but very flat and bland ...
So I decided to try and jazz one of them up. I used Adirondak Alcohol Inks and a blender mixed up my inks and began to podge all over until I had the desired effect.
Left the inks to dry which didnt take long just a few minutes. Then stuck on the butterfly embellishment and a gem ...
Certainly looks brighter than when I bought it .....  lol
