Altered Antique Ledger Book

Hello friends!
Today I want to share with you an antique ledger book that I altered!



The paper used for this ledger is from the Circa 1934 collection by Cosmo Cricket.
I love this line! It is such fun paper! I added lots of layers and different textures to the cover of the ledger to make it really dimensional.





The grungeboard swirls and hinges are by Tim Holtz and are inked red with Barn Door Distress Ink. The lovely Ornate bracket design is a die by Tim Holtz.





I also altered the inside cover of the ledger book. I added a kraft envelope to hold small ephemera which is by Maya Road.
This ledger book has 25 pages to fill with memories and photos!





This ledger book is now in the etsy shop!

Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey

What a beautiful job you did on that ledger! I have been waiting for that paper. I have not a clue what I am going to do about it. Maybe I will just admire it ;-)
Hugs,

Wow Lindsey! This is wonderful! I love the Circa 1934 line AND Tim Holtz! Did you have a chance to view his twelve tags of Christmas? You'd probably enjoy the inspiration! Of course I'm not sure that you need any, seeing as how your ledger rocks!!!
