Q&A with Bluejem13

Adelestad22363 asked:
What kind of paper did you use?
Bluejem13 answered:
I used a very old dictionary, from the 40's I think, it was very fragile. The pages were crumbling away. I used dye and chalk inks to tint the pages.
franstamper asked:
How did you do the center feature?
Bluejem13 answered:
The center feature is vintage book pages tinted with dye ink stamp pads, chalk ink stamp pads. Then I cut quarter circles out of the pages and rolled into cones and glued. After I had enough cones, I started arranging them into a half ball shape, glued them in place as I went.
