Hullo everyone! 🌙 

Here is an illustrated set of instructions I made on how to make a Positivity Spell Jar for my illustration class this past quarter. 

What you’ll need:

A Jar

Lighter

Salt- for protection

Glitter-for fun

Candle- light and let melt around edges of jar to Cast Spell

Rosemary- for mental strength

Lavender- to keep calm

Citrine- for abundance

Rose Quartz- for love

Blue Thread- for harmony

—–

As you set each item into the jar focus on what they represent to you. Your magick and energy melding with each, coming from inside you and around you. Close off the jar and wrap the thread round the top of the jar. Light the candle, visualizing the flame as the energy casting the spell.  

This can be modified to make absolutely any type of spell jar. Use different ingredients and colors to symbolize different things.

Enjoy!

McQueen created his own ‘museum of woman-monsters’ in his second couture collection for Givenchy, Eclect Dissect, shown in July 1997. In the period leading up to to the show, his art director Simon Costin combined the late Victorian costumes McQueen was then looking at with with a series of animated skeletons and muscle men from the sixteenth-century anatomical plates of Andreas Vesalius in a series of collages.

The last two weeks have been been crazy, so I’m sorry about the lack of posts over the last little while. In the meantime, though, here’s a quick 2am sketch I did early this morning. I was taking a break from a stressful project by listening to some of my favorite tunes, and voila. Out of my fingertips and charcoal onto my sketchbook flowed this peaceful music lover. She’s definitely in her happy place, listening to her best playlist on her massive headphones. :) 

Yay for finally playing around with my #ArtSnacks box goodies! :)

Thanks, @ArtSnacks!
