Day 23 - 31 Days


The Wicked Blogger Roll is on the left side bar <-------
Scavenger hunt rules and guidelines can be found HERE for 31 Days of Halloween.
You may have just arrived from the ghoulish Wicked Blogger Kapree and are now here at Shoni / Crafty Inknik.  The next frightful blog is Altered Pages.
I have decided to make some Spell Books.  I am still working on the covers so you will see those and more pages this next week, maybe even one finished book...kinda.  You know how it goes when you need to add more pages, or accumulate more stamps that need to go in.  Yes, another book that will never be quite "finished".
Now that I have made a couple, I am hooked.  Watch out after Halloween sales, I am  ready!!
Okay, on with the post.  I am showing two sets of pages from the altered phone book.  

Section 13 - The Deets

Pages were found on GOOGLE, saved, and printed out on full sheets of copy paper.

Cut to measure phone book.

Pages are slightly thicker because when I Gesso-ed the outside, did pages as well and many stuck together.  So pulled apart the width that I liked.
Printed pages were Tombow-ed to the book pages.

Maya Red Mist Spritz in centers.
