Halloween Spell Book Tutorial

Hi Prim Girls, 
If you remembered in my giveaway post, I mentioned that I will be adding more items, one of them is a Halloween Spell Book. Yeah, I know that was a long time since I shared a Tutorial in my blog, well,  I decide to make a new tutorial and show you the steps that I followed to make my book.

 Steps :
* Use the cheaper book that you could find. ( Mine is a 10 cents Thrift Store book)
* Sanded a little bit and then give a  base coat, I painted it black.
 * Give a  second coat of paint, I choosed  a mix of Barn red, Light Cinnamon and Country Tan. Apply them randomly using an old sock.
* Once it is completely dry,  sanded again to give a worn look.
  * Now use an ink pad, tags and alphabet stamp set.... make your own book tittle. ( You can hand paint it if you want, be creative)
 * Then give the final touches to your  Halloween  Spell Book, I added a  drawing, attached the tag, stained and to give an old look you can used cinnamon rubbed in ( not only looks old but smells good too)
 * Now, your  book is ready for display it....
 Remember ..... My Giveaway Winner will received this beautiful book.
Hope you enjoy this tutorial and please if you make one, let me know and shared your pictures .

Bye, bye and see you soon,
