The colors for this month’s projects are brown, orange and gold: a beautiful color combo if you ask me. Perfect for Halloween and/or Thanksgiving.
My project for today focus on Halloween: I have made the books that witches and wizards use for their daily routines. 🙂
I used some thin dies to cut the shapes of my books. I decided to add some texture with embossing folders and embossing powders.
After they were embossed I distressed them to get the wrinkles on an old leather book. I used another shape of the thin dies for the distressed titles and used foam squares on them for dimension.
I then used some sketch paper, torn them to look like old pages and stamped an assortment of Halloween images on them.
I also distressed the pages for the well-used/old look of the books. As the last step, I stapled covers and pages together but then I changed my mind and bound them with rustic twine.
and…here are the finished Witches and Wizards Books. Totally awesome!
You can always change the theme and colors for your needs.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
