This was Marie Laveau's VooDoo Shop in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The place obviously attracts a lot of tourist traffic, but look around and you will see that the shop definitely caters to those who believe. "Recipe" books and the ingredients for any sort of "potion" you can imagine are in the back, along with knowledgeable staff who will read your palm and help you choose whatever talisman or charm you need to help ward off those evil spells...or cast one yourself. Voodoo dolls anyone?
Here's how I scrapped that furtive photo:
Most of the patterned papers are from Echo Park's Chillingsworth Manor collection. Other supplies include patterned paper and die cut paper from BasicGrey, wood veneer birds from Studio Calico, alphabet stamps, an old script background stamp, a foliage stamp, date stamp, ink, ribbon, and shipping tags.
Eeek! Do YOU believe in magic?!
