Merlin's Book of Spells and Potions

Our word this week (week 3)for the Art Journal Caravan is Mystery, our port of call this month is the United Kingdom, so had to include Merlin as part of my tour. I started this as one of my exercises in PhotoShop and it just started coming together, I love when that happens, don't you?  I wanted to add some hand made brushes to photoshop, so I did 3 of them for this page, Mystery is handwritten, the ink splots were done with India Ink on water color paper and the binding for the book is a Zentangle done on a long strip.  The leather string closure is from Tangie's "YippeKaiYay" kit, the bottle and winged heart are from Dawn Inskip "Ministry of Magic" kit.  The background paper is an old splatter sheet I scanned in.  Happy Sunday everyone, may all your spells be loving ones. Hugs

This looks beautiful Sandi, so smart of you to scan your images in so you still have the original too.
