More Magic and Supernatural

As my Dark Side AB RR continues, I got Becky's Magic/Supernatural book again.  This time, I had alchemy on my mind as it is the theme I have chosen for my own book for a new AB RR starting up next month. 

I like the images that are associated with alchemy.  I gathered up a bunch of the symbols for the elements and put together this spread for Becky's book.   The flag pull-out was the perfect way to showcase each of the 16 different symbols.

Fears Revisited

A few of us in my Dark Side AB Round Robin wanted to continue for a second round.  I got the opportunity to work in Sue's "Fears" book for a second time.  Since I had recently worked in her book, I wanted to take some time to decide on a fresh approach to this theme. 

I stumbled across a quote I had written down (wish I could remember where I saw it) and wanted to incorporate it into my spread.  It poses the question, "What if your fears and dreams exist in the same place, would you still go there?"   I know I would!  I loved this image of a woman diving in, taking the plunge and it complimented this quote perfectly. 

I used the packing tape transfer technique for my spread.  The clear tape allowed the words of the pages to show through.  As you can see I had a bit of a challenge getting the spacing of the quote just right.  I had to abbreviate some of the words, but the message still comes across.  So would you?
