31 Days of Halloween Book

I really had a wonderful time taking part in the 31 day Halloween hop over at Smeared and Smudged. I managed to write a bit of a story each day and had so many lovely comments that I printed a book of the projects and the comments without any names or personal details.. to keep as a muse. So, I printed each project A5 size with the comments and used my Cinch binding machine to punch the holes I set the pages onto the wires whilst I made the covers. I cut the chipboard to A5 and punched the holes. I had some ordinary 3ply tissues. I separated the tissues and used single thin sheets all scrunched up and stuck them onto the covers. I gesso'd them and rubbed distress ink all over. I was astonished at the result.

An example of the inside of the book, the project and the story then a page of some amazing comments.

Inside the front cover is Rick's bio, I owe an awful lot to him. He is so generous and very supportive.


  1. I think this is a brilliant idea! The scrunched up tissue paper adds so much texture - looks amazing!
