Who lies beneath your spell?

Todays post is a little one with only one card. You know I love the story telling element of my craft and today  the sentiment  I found said  "Who lies beneath your spell?"   Imagine what the story could be, especially when you see the image I used and the fragments with the numbers...maybe she's a fortune teller?
The jewel tone colors and the gold filagree (from an upside down doiley and german scrap) fit the color challenge for Gingersnap Creations GC# 92. This week I painted the background, not something I usually do, a shimmer green color and added glitter, plus I colored the gold papers to add additional jeweled accents. Using the plastic fragments was for the "Compendium of Curiosities" Challenge at Studio L3 CCC#34 called Dimensional Collage Fragments check out page 63 from Tim Holtz's book. Well that's my little project for today, hope you found it mesmerizing........  Artfully yours, Gerri.

  16. Ooh, this is absolutely enchanting, Gerri! I love that mysterious lady with her rich colors and lovely shrine. The Fragment collages are PERFECT for this piece. She's either a fortune teller or a physicist, that's for sure!
