Book of Shadows Ostara page 4 of 6 by Brightstone Book of Shadows Ostara page 4 of 6 by Brightstone
The 4th page of the Ostara (Vernal equinox) celebrating spring. The border began as a pencil drawing inked with technical pen .30, base color laid out in Photoshop CS 5 extended, printed out on Canon iPF5000 printer at size 16 x 16". Then using a combination of Prismacolor colored pencils detail was added and a Prismacolor premier fine tip pen was used to blend the drawing. I chose the Peace Rose because that was the first rose I ever planted while I was a teenager in middle school. I have always been in love with the story of how this rose was smuggled out of France just before the Nazi occupation. The body copy is papyrus, an Adobe font. The background is scanned parchment.

The Ukrainian Easter eggs were created by a dear friend Richard Barnhill who is no longer with us.

Source of text mostly acquired from the Internet with sources given.

I would be interested if aspiring book of shadows author would like to collaborate on future pages since I am more of a visual artists and less of a writer. If you're interested please contact me.
