A Wiccan of 25 years, Sage likes to put her background as a writer and teacher to use by helping people learn about this NeoPagan path.

Blank Pages for Your BOS

Book of Shadows free pages, anyone? After all, who doesn't want their BOS to look beautiful?

Like my last hub on free printable Book of Shadow pages, these are decorative pages that you can resize, print and add to your own book. You can insert it if you use an album that allows for adding and subtracting pages, or you can paste them right into your blank book.

You can use photoshop to add text, or you can print them and write by hand on them.

You can add your favorite content with photoshop, then pass it around to your friends on social media, or use it on your web page-- even if it's monetized. As long as you offer it as free content, you are free to use it-- please provide a link back to this page here as a courtesy.

Great Book of Shadows Cover

This post-bound album cover allows you to expand your book, use drop-in slip covers, take it apart and re-arrange it as you see fit. It's very convenient for keeping your BOS organized over the years, and you can personalize the cover by decorating it!

 

Tips for Adding Text in Photoshop

  1. Copy and paste the image into an 8-by-10 document in photoshop. Save it as a blank document so you can use it again if you wish.
  2. Choose a decorative font in the size and color you desire.
  3. Click layer>new to create a new layer.
  4. Type in your font, adjust it as desired to make it roughly fit the writing area.
  5. When you're ready, move or tilt the layer with the font to get it to fit perfectly on the writing area.
  6. Make the font look old and worn, so it looks like part of the page. Click on the font on the layer menu and click 'simplify'.
  7. Go to the eraser tool. Choose a thick heavy brush. Adjust the size to about 250 px.
  8. Reduce opacity to 10 percent.
  9. Hover the eraser tool over the font and 'scrub' the tool back and forth while clicking slowly on the left mouse button. When the font looks sufficiently faded, stop. Don't do it too much or you could erase what you've written (simply 'undo' if you've gone too far).
  10. Merge the layers. Save it as a new jpg file with your content so you can now share it.
