So I made this cool book over the weekend. I began with an old Readers' Digest book and gutted it. Then I spent the majority of the weekend splatterpainting the pages. It took quite a while but it looks so amazing. <3

Are the water splats only on the outside or did you paint the actual insides?

I did water splats on most of the pages and some of them I made solid. I should have taken some pictures of the inside. Oops.

Readers Digests are my FAVORITE books to alter!  Looks like it came out great!
