I had made a halloween mini, but have decided that I need to make another one - more grown-up (if you get what I mean?). Anyways... here's the original try:
I made the cover first (the cherished chipboard from HobbyCraft) - the paper was red, then I inked it up with Red Lava and a bit of Plum Cosmic Shimmers... scrunched it, dried it, ironed it - way to shock the family - I haven't gotten my iron out in years - if the tumble dryer can't get the creases out, how am I expected to? Anyway... the family are now in tune with my way of thinking - i.e, that papercrafting is more important than housework (and ironing paper is more important that ironing clothing). I also used a bit of Distress Embossing Powder to create the dusty aged effect.
My favourite page was a sixteen page mini-mini that looks like a miniature spellbook, hidden inside a pocket - inked and aged pages sewn together for binding - but my camera is out of battery, so can't show you that one at the moment :(
