I put a thin layer of gesso over the 2 pieces of cardboard that were going to be the cover. Then using an old credit card, I scraped across grey & black acrylic paint so that there were all three layers showing thru. It made a nice textured effect that I like a lot :)
The two pieces of cardboard were slightly different widths. I was going to trim the wider one, but instead decided to use alternating black & white tabbed pages to fill the space :)
The saying is from a Halloween paper pack. It orginally said "A Night Filled with Fright.. etc etc" but I trimmed off the first part so that it now refers to the contents of the book! :)
Here are some of the fun pages inside:
And a pocket made from the envelope my Walgreens photo prints came in :)
This book is for sale in my Etsy if anyone's interested.
Now I just have to finish this books "big brother" lol
