I made a little pocket from tuille and slipped in some of my sacred sage.. so that Daisy could use it at mabon to cleanse and protect her much loved Dene Cottage. On the right is a Mabon blessing.. I used some tigers eye crystal hanging from a red thread at the bottom of the page.
next we have Samhain.. or Halloween... rosemary is the herb and it is the time when the veil is thinnest... I wanted this to look dark and mysterious. I stuck black tissue all over.. then painted orange paint, here and there. Once that was dry, I painted it all over with beeswax. The photo of the fire is behind a veil of black tuille and a gazing ball I found in a garden magazine.. representing scrying.
first of all I painted a tree on the left then I used some gold paint to paint borders on both pages.. a Yule blessing which I love and some baubles and mistletoe..lots of glitter of course cause she was the glitter Queen. Poundland will miss Daisy alot !
the last page... I wanted to do something for Pixie... and I went out of my comfort zone and wrote haiku... I am not an expert on Haiku actually I know nothing much about it at all..
Under the haiku I was going to find a picture of Pixie.... but I will leave that for sweetpea to do.. and on the right some Daisy plastic paper.. a little box cut out to show the words... the end
and below is the back cover.
I found a vintage envelope and I am going to stick it on the back cover. My plan was to put little bits of interest into it as Treasures for *Daisy*... there are a few blank pages after Samhain, that I will paint pink *cause pink is sweetpeas favourite colour* and I will leave them for her to put her memories of Daisy, her mum... so there you go.. all finished. now I think I will make myself an altered book... not sure what theme..
*~* I hope your day is filled with butterflies, magick, colour & fripperies! ~*~
