Every few months, our school librarian cleans house, meaning she goes through all the shelves and chucks the books that haven't been checked out in several years. I understand why she must do this to make room for new reads, but seeing those orphaned books on the give-away cart makes me a bit sad. So I have made it my duty to rescue a few of these discarded treasures and put them to new use. I've already used several as visual journals and others I have cut apart to harvest their illustrations. The spread below uses two quirky (and somewhat disturbing) images that came from a children's book on the paranormal. Inspired by the countless ghost-hunting shows that I've seen over the last several years, I created this spread as a warning: don't mess with forces that you cannot control. In other words, if you go looking for other-worldly adventures...you may just get what you seek.
