My grimoire/BoS/altered book/art journal/smashbook/collage scrapbook-ish project. Base book was a university library discard. 

Alphabet stamps and a Krylon gold paint pen are my friends - the first, because my handwriting is shitty, and the second, because I can’t draw worth a damn but no one notices when everything is gold and shiny!!!

Made a very long index (to be filled in as I go, bullet journal-style) because this book is hella thick. 

More pics will come as I start filling it up. :)

The final scene of Book 3- as it should have been!

“Does she still love you?”

“I don’t think so,” Magnus said dryly. “She wasn’t very pleasant the last time I saw her. Of course, that could be because I’ve got an eighteen year-old boyfriend with a stamina rune and she doesn’t.”

Alec sputtered. “As the person being objectified, I … object to that description of me.”

Continuing work in my grimoire(-ish) project

1. Spine details

2. “Gilded” the page edges with rub n’ buff (“gold leaf” finish)

3. Beginning a color-coding key with washi tape

4. First real entry in the index :)

5. Collage and journal space for the Strength card (my signifier)

Collage reads:

Oh pure and radiant heart

that led her to claim

The Value of Small Things

where the only relationship that matters is the one between

patience and skill

muscle and backbone

Needing all their strength and agility,

Nuclear dragon tamers

avoided hunting

In the belly of the beast

Making friends with a killer

Rider on the 

Sacred Heart

it’s the only one that can support 1,800 pounds of mean, hungry lions

It shows the creature being led, swaying gently, to the reason for hope

There is perhaps no more powerful force than kindness.
