This started out as an old Reader's Digest book.
It looks a little scary and serious,
but look again :)
I painted the real cover of the book and then waded up a piece of faux leather paper and glued it to the cover. I sanded it to give it the worn out look. The cover of the spine is a faux suede paper which I also sanded a bit. I used tiny beads along the edge of the suede.
The title of the book was printed onto a cloud vellum. I painted the frame black and dry brushed on the gold.

Love that Venom bottle!
Carter's Little Liver Pills, ever heard of those?? :)
Scary huh? :)
Thank you for looking at my altered book.
