Book of Shadows

This page is my contribution to another Collab book. We generally have 6 months in which to do this one, it is 15 pages and we have an extra book to auction on ebay with the proceeds going to our charity of choice.

This year the theme was Book of Shadows with the direction that we needed to include a "spell" in the layout. I will admit that the thought of "spells" put me off somewhat however I found a lovely one about friendship and would have to say that all the "spells" in the book are of a positive nature. Nothing dark or intimidating.

The tag at the bottom is what is held in the pocket. Ophelia is looking into a crystal ball seeking friendships.

The background behind Ophelia is torn book pages painted & then swiped with a black stamp pad. The background to the left is embossed with a cuttlebug folder & swiped with a black stamp pad. The background of the pocket is Alcohol Ink with a gold embossed stamp of various ladies. I love the image of the three friends on the tag, it is frame is done with my nestabilities.
