i know a magician never reveals his secrets... but i am DYING to know how you were able to fade the words on the page, if you ever feel like disclosing some info... :) but that aside, this is excellent. beyond well done. :heart:

Happy to disclose! I take the ink off the page with regular Scotch tape - Scotch Magic is what I usually have on hand. Masking tape works too. These tapes will pick up ink off any unvarnished paper (magazine interiors not covers - try it with newsprint and you'll see) and when you have old thick paper that the ink has soaked into for a long time like I do here (it's a book from the early 20th century) it leaves some behind and gives this nice effect.

And thank you most kindly! :aww:

Thanks very much!
I use tape to take words off, on old thick paper it works well. Scotch packing tape for big sections and Scotch Magic tape for details.
