I took a huge step out of my box and joined a swap to make a page for a BOS or Book Of Shadows. A BOS is a personal book kept by a witch. A Grimoire is more of a "public" book, containing general beliefs, correspondences, and general earthy knowledge. I would consider this a Grimoire page swap as it is work done by other artists. This is the page that I made for the swap. It's a houseplant blessing!

How I made the background leaves: Stamped with Clear VersaMark, sprinkled heat & stick powder over it, and brushed pearl ex powder on after heating.
 Back page: leaves are die cut, "Grow" is gold marker, brighter in real life

Base is a dark green card stock, lighter green card stock for leaves, white card stock for typed spell with designer paper card stock behind. Pearl ex is a shiny green/gold. All products are from Stampin' Up!, including the gold marker.

I hope everyone likes their page, I am very pleased with how it came out.
Have a Fantastic day!!!

Mixed Media Beach Art

Hey everyone, I back! This is a mixed media paper art project using paper, ink, real shells and those plastic dohicky things, (shell shaped). The images are fussy cut of course, with many of the pieces being 3D using foam adhesives.
