creating a book of shadows

What I've been working on, slowly, but still...

I've been tea staining paper to create a Book of Shadows. Let's face it. I don't need a vintage feeling BOS, but I want one! So I've been soaking some pages in tea water (chai... because it gives my pages a light, but yummy smell). 

Here's what I've created/collected so far:

I'm pretty sure that I'm going to bind them together into book format by using O rings so that the book can grow as I grow. I'll create hard covers to protect the pages and that'll be that. I may reinforce the holes using those stickers, but that's it.

Decoratively I'm going to add light nature stamp motifs. I'll share more as I get it done!



  1. Oh wow! Awesome! I bought a cool scrapbook album for our family BOS, but won't be able to work on it for a while :( I love the idea of making one yourself though, and it sounds like and interesting project! Good luck to you! <3

    1. Thanks! You'll have to share yours when you start working on it. I'm always curious about what others create!
