February 7-10 Bod

This spread was done with a wall paper base and toilet paper casting. The color was applied to the casting with markers and Perfect Pearls. It has yet to be journaled. ( Toilet paper casting: Mix some glue with water to thin it down. Choose a rubber stamp that has good deep pattern detail. Lay one square of toilet paper over the stamp and use a stiff brush and glue mix and "pounce" the glue in the grooves. Do this 5 times. Take a towel and press the excess moisture out of the toilet paper while it's still on the stamp. Carefully peel the toilet paper from the stamp and invert. Put on a pan and bake it on a low heat until the casting is dry. Paint or chalk as you wish)
