'Forever' for 13arts

Hello crafty friends, I'm back to share a page I designed for
the brand new challenge over at 13 arts called 'INKtober'!
I saw Olga's awesome theme in the design team group and thought about
making a page with an eerie, haunted feel.


I started with a paper from the 'Aria' collection by Aida called 'Lyrics' and from there added
lots of mediums, paints and inks to my background. On top of that some different laces,
some feathers, flowers and some silver tiny beads and silver mica flakes.

I was just amazed at all the talented designers and guests work for this challenge, 
so wickedly inspiring!
Please go here to find out how to enter, you MUST use 13 arts inks!

Here are a few close ups:

I really love working with these Pearl Pigment powders, what a beautiful shine!
I used one called 'Luster Black on the 13 arts title chipboard, and 'Warm Gold'
on the 2 Crafty Chipboard round vine frame. The powders when mixed with just a
little water give a really worn metallic look to the chipboards.

“When down her weedy trophies and herself
Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide; 
And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up: 
Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes; 
As one incapable of her own distress, 
Or like a creature native and indued
Unto that element: but long it could not be
Till that her garments, heavy with their drink, 
Pull’d the poor wretch from her melodious lay
To muddy death.
