Altered Notebook on the Ranger Blog (Tutorial)


What a treat to be featured on the Ranger website today with another back-to-school project.  I’ve used Dylusions Ink Sprays with five of Tim Holtz’s new layered stencils, plus Sizzix dies, distress paints, Wendy’s embossing paste, distress inks, Idea-ology, etc.  My Xyron® 9” Creative Station holds my altered book cover in place.


Details and many step-out photos are on the Ranger blog.  Thanks for the visit!



Your comments are very much appreciated!
