I took this pic with my phone, so sorry it's not all that and a bag of chips... not that my pics ever are. LOL
This is my before pic... I am still working on it and I will post another pic tomorrow or the next day when it's all done. This is one of those projects where it just always seems to need one more thing. I just really wanted to share it cuz I love it :)
Onto the good stuff. I saw this tutorial... I'll share the link later or check it out in my SCS gallery. The link to that is on the right. I used one of those smutty trashy novels for my wreath. I can't tell you if it was a good story or not because frankly I never read that book. I don't even remember where it came from. I think it was a yard sale find with a box of Stephen King books. I am more of a James Patterson kinda gal now (though I admit to reading the Twilight series too.)
I edged all the sides of the book with a dark brown cats eye. It really adds definition to the pages. The tutorial used a painted edge. I can't be bothered with painting when I can just dab with an ink pad.
