First lightly spray your paper- I did front and back. Then wad it into a ball. Unfold and wad a few times until it's distressed to your liking.
Unfold and let dry. Here's all my sheets drying.
Flower Foot Designs puts a nice texture on hers- but I don't own a cuttlebug so this is what I did. I used a brown ink pad and ran it over the paper. This allows the raised areas to pick up the ink. I then tore the paper into random pieces and used tons o' modge podge to stick it to the game board and protect it.
Now, to make it look like a Bible. I cut out Holy Bible on my cricut, but removed the letters and used the vinyl as a stencil.
I then used a gold paint pen to fill in the letters.
When I removed the vinyl stencil this is how the finished book turned out.
I'd say it looks pretty good. Can't wait to see these kids perform this fun musical. I know not many of you will be required to make a large Holy Bible in your lifetime, but I thought this would make the coolest wall treatment. It's as sturdy (if not more) as wallpaper and has the greatest texture. Hope you enjoyed. Love, Kelly.
