Spell Book


Today I have a spell book to share with you that I created from our August kit.  This was an old fabric covered lilac note book that I had that had truly seen better days.  It was time to re-purpose.

I started by painting the covering with black craft paint and spraying with black marble Dylusions.  I added some of the black spray to texture paste and created a 3d effect with paste and stencil on the cover.  To add more dimension I randomly rubbed over my Versamark and sprinkled on some of the Lindys Stamp Gang embossing powder.  I used papers from the Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale to cover the binding and the inside of the book.

Prima flowers were sprayed along with some leaves and grouped and adhered.  I also used a Tim Holtz fragment in the center, this was set in place while the paste was still wet.  I finished this with a Halloween charm.

I added lace, charms, painted chipboard and a die cut hinge from Tim Holtz grunge paper.  The aged look on the pages was achieved by spraying  Tattered Angels Simply Sheer in rich brown.  I allowed the pages to curl when I used my heat gun to dry.

Thank you for visiting and looking.
