My first altered book

This is my first altered book.
I found a little old lockable diary that was just crying out to be altered.
Found this very enjoyable but very messy to do lol.
Used acrylic paints in black and metalics to paint it and yes my new fav toy to coil the wire and added beads to the wire on the front.
The image on the front is one of my new stamps my mum brought me back from her hols in oz.
I stamped it into clay and cut it out left it to dry the painted it black then used metalic rub ons to colour it.
