Practical Magic -- the Book

A few months ago, I accepted a challenge to create a work of art around the book or movie, Practical Magic.  I chose the book (haven't seen the movie) and here is my entry....a collage, representing some of the critical elements of the book.  I used Photoshop, Olioboard and a few other tools to create this digital image...

Now I can't wait to see everyone else's!  Thanks for the challenge!

If you click on the image, it will render slightly larger. Please leave me links when you post yours! :-)

I have only seen the movie. Perhaps I would like the book better judging by your lovely art.

Sarah, I got my copy from Amazon...no one local had it. Hope you have better luck in Idaho :-) If you want to be patient, I could send it, but my daughter is reading it now.
