Altered Art - Halloween book

 Hi creative friends!

It's not new I love books and not only to read, as you can see again today, nothing is safe in front of my creativity ­čśë 

Mystical imaginative stories have always stimulated my fantasy, I can still remember on a Halloween poem of a friend, which moved me to create an old haunted house already infested by tree roots.

I saw the new month theme at MTW Challenge and was inspired to create  a spooky Halloween night in an old book and even in color, which is less typical for me, because my middle name is rather monochrome ­čśÇ


I was inspired to use a lot of Halloween themed cutting dies (Sizzix) in combination with decoupage technique for the background and some suitable natural materials (tree fungi, moss, branches, and lichen).

use a real old book as base 
and some bookpages for the little handmade book 
in the bottom center 

Happy crafting!
