Bound by a Spell

Morning everyone and hope you are all well and keeping warm-unlike us lol and first of all I would just like to say thenk you all for your comments they are much appreciated even though I have been slow getting back to you all-it's just one thing after another here and we have had little grandaughter Holly has been off all week and ended up in hospital all day Friday she is home now but have all been worried sick-so don't think I have been ignoring you and will get round you all fingers crossed in the next couple of days .
My journal page today is my DT project for 613 Avenue Create "Create Your own Challenge" and we are sponsored by Zuri Artsy Crafts,Di's Digi Stamps and ADFD whose image Bound By a Spell,coloured with promarkers.I made the background using Brusho's and stamped and stencilled through sequin waste with distress inks,stamped some small baby images and stamped and embossed some feet and hands,added some die-cut waste and die-cut safety pins,splattered with some gesso and edged the page with Twinkling H2o's,I also embossed the edges of image in silver and backed on to cardstock.
I used multi media/New Baby/red/black/pink/green/white/silver

  12. I have to tip my hat to mixed media artists... it kinda scares me to read all those steps and products. Bet it takes a long time to get the effect you want! Must admit that brusho sure is tempting! Thank you for sharing your project and creativity with us at Aud Sentiments for our ATG + a Sentiment challenge!

  16. What a way to design a simple notebook. Anyway, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful project with us this week at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with the encouragement of God's Word in Psalm 27:1 which says, "The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?" Hugs and blessings!
