More altered book art

Here's another spread from my altered book. The right side  is the front of the bag insert I showed you yesterday with the tombstone and Shakespeare saying. I sprayed the bag to make it orange, and added this boney hand which is an image from Rubber Stamps of America. You can see the tag I made inside of it just poking out the top. On the left side I painted the book page black and then sprayed it with some white Tattered Angel's spray.
The bottom of the page is a strip of black and white striped 7Gyspies Gaffer Tape which I painted the white stripes orange. And the moon is a Sizzix die cut. I added some silver Stickles dots to make stars in the night sky.
Then I die cut 2 rounded ATC style tags and embossed the top one with a Sizzix embossing folder. These cards were white so I could easily rub black ink over it to make the web pop out.  I added a little  appropriate cameo.
Here's a close up
You can see it better here.
And when you flip up the top card

The witch saying is from stamp cube I won in eBay several years ago. Maybe it is from Northwoods.
And the tag that is popping up on the top photo-
here it is.
Since it is about the witches ball, this tag addresses the big party. I purposefully smudged the embossing powder here and there to give it a rough look. Think the rest of it is pretty self explanatory.
Don't you agree?
Happy Thursday!
Week is winding down.

What a great book. I love Halloween and the crafts that go with it. I've been making some tags but they're not finished to post yet. Hope I can get to them before the 31st.

The painted bag is a great idea and I love that tape. Got to get some.

So great that you are teaching your hobby to other teachers. Hope it goes well, have fun.
