Altered Book - Bombshell Style

Well those of you that know me in "Stamp-land" may not know that I love making altered books!!
So when the Bombshell Challenge by Ms. March was put up.....I was so excited!

The Challenge is called "Booty Log"
and you need to make some sort of altered book, journal, etc..

I decided that I needed a way to catalog my Bombshell I made an altered book catalog.

It is not done, but I wanted to share what I have done so far!!  Keep in mind the pages need a lot more coloring,
embellishments and work!

I started with a great book from the 1920s that had seen better days.
First step.... reinforce the sad spine (it is kind of like mine...hahaha)
Then I glued the pages together and painted the pages white. 
One thing I like to do is look for words on the text that fit with what I am doing and make sure not to paint over them.  This book happened to work well!  I also left the pages with pictures. 
The book was made into a movie in the 20s, and there are pictures from it.

I am waiting for the Bombshell Angel stamps set, and I will stamp the cover with the word "Bombshell" from that set.  It will read " Secrets of a Bombshell Addict "

So, here are some preliminary pics!!
