HAlloween Altered Book

This altered book was one of my favorite projects for Stampendous for July CHA.  It began life as a duplicate hard back book (otherwise I could never bring myself to paint it!)

The cover was painted in Hematite Maya Gold paint and after that dried the fun began!

My focal point is the new Mirror Mirror stamp from Stampendous.  I stamped her in Versamark ink on previously painted paper then embossed her in Aged Black embossing Enamel then set this aside.

On the book itself I added multiple layers of paper (Echo Park), stenciling (Copper Embossing Creme through Ronda Palazzari's Quatrefoil stencil from The Crafter's Workshop), and moe stamping with Haunting Background embossed in Aged Spice.

I added some black Mesh ribbon from May Arts...

And lots of fall flowers from Petaloo...

Overall a very fun cover to alter!  Plus the insides began to take shape but I of course forgot to take picture of the inside before I mailed it off, LOL.


  1. WOWZERS! Love this cover! So many great details! Love the webbing and that image is a must have! TFS!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment! Every comment makes me smile :)
