Practical Magic Altered Art Book- Page Spreads 2 & 3
I took snatches of time to run down and look at the different Party goers blogs and I still haven't made it around to every one's. I loved all I saw and I have to say Anna, you are a wonderful hostess.
By the way thank you for letting me use your party invitation in my Altered Book.
I worked yesterday on two page spreads. I decided to start with the Aunts and their love spells. I wanted to give the page a Victorian feel, using laces, hearts, stamps for and from love letters and the mourning dove feather I found on a walk about the neighborhood last summer. I also included a pink pearl end hat pin.
I posted two photos of this page spread as I wasn't sure which one would give you a better view.
The aphrodisiac drink recipe is copied from the original Practical Magic Book of Shadows.
The book I am altering I found at the Goodwill. It is a little book of Irish recipes. I'm saving some of them as I rip out the extra pages. One of the recipes I am using for the book is for Buttermilk pancakes.
Don't you think it needs to be included?
