Forgotten Friday Number 8- Tattered Angels

Hello folks, it's Friday, which means that it's time for me to rummage through my vast masses of forgotten stash, and make a project with something forgotten or neglected. This week, I have chosen to use some of my Tattered Angels products. Some of these have never been used, I am ashamed to say!
I decided to decorate a lovely Kraft book from Paperchase that I picked up for about £5, it has Kraft pages inside too, and could be used as a scrapbook, or as an ideas folder, a journal, whatever you like, really.
I chose some masks to go with the unused stamps that I was intending to use, and got out a mixture of very neglected Glimmer mists, Crafty Notions sprays, and Adirondack sprays. I sprayed the front and back covers, removed the masks, and dried off both covers. I stamped the areas that had been masked, and unfortunately, my Butterfly is slightly off centre, but there you go, they can't all be perfect!
The back cover is a lovely greeny blue, to echo the dragonfly stamp.
This is so shimmery, and the photo really doesn't do it justice. I have also added a couple of swirls, and picked out parts of the design in pencil. I would like to add some Tim Holtz corners, and one or two other pieces to the book, just to finish it off, and once I've finished faffing, I'll show you the updated version.
If you feel like joining in with my Forgotten Friday challenge, please leave a link in my comments, and I'll pop along to your blog, and have a look. Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

Judith this project is stunning. I didn't know about forgotten Friday challenges till I read this. I think it's a superb idea and would love to join in but for the next few weeks I'm going to be meeting myself coming back so it might not be possible.
I will add it to my favourites though.
