I am seeking funds in order to publish a large format, full colour book of my Faerie artwork and step-by-step guide to creating personal magic spells and enchantments.
Explore your world in new and inspiring ways with this in-depth guide to Faerie Magik. This lavish book contains all you need to embark on your personal journey into a realm of wonder and enchantment. You will learn how to create your own magik spells, charms and runes in order to establish spiritual intentions and affirmations. The process focuses on your personal creativity, being a framework in which you can develop your own magikal skills.
The Faerie Enchanters Grimoire is devised in such a way that you need no previous understanding of spellcraft or magik workings. It is a means to establish your own magik, in your own way, and to renew your deep personal relationship with the spiritual beauty of nature. The simple instructions allow you to craft spells of love, strength, knowledge, vitality and protection, to name just a few, and to explore your personal creativity and spirituality.
My desire is to inspire others on their life journey, to see the magik all around us and within each of us! To help create this community I have also set up a Study Group Facebook page, where you will be able to interact with and share your experiences as a Faerie Enchanter. You are warmly welcome to join the group at https://m.facebook.com/groups/1527744933934711
This satin finished cover 150 page book will measure 12 x 8 inches and include full page reproductions of all 40 paintings from my Faerie Enchantments Magik Divination Cards. These colour paintings feature Faeries, Gods and Goddesses from Celtic mythology, as well as over 20 additional artworks, along with descriptions, accounts and myths of these beautifully bewitching Faerie Enchanters.
The Faerie Enchanters Grimoire is also to be a luxurious collection of my oil paintings, watercolours and drawings. Packed full of glossy images this large format publication is intended to enchant and inspire. Within you will discover paintings and drawings of Faerie Queens, Pagan Gods, bewitching Celtic Goddesses, along with Faerie Animals and Nature Spirits. The images are also intended to be used in visualization and to inspire your own creativity.
How does it work?
The book will introduce you to the Gods and Goddesses of Celtic Mythology, each with an account of their enchanting stories and a full colour illustration. Each of these 'Faerie Enchanters' represent a particular energy that can be combined and structured into a personal affirmation or spell by use of magik symbolism. These elements will include particular gemstones, colours, trees, animals, images and simple items which resonate most deeply with the chosen energies. This symbolism, drawn from Celtic Faerie tales, Druidism and Tarot tradition, is a framework of the subtle spiritual workings of all nature - including each one of us.
Each God and Goddess presented in the Faerie Enchanters Grimoire represents an aspect within the wheel of life. All these aspects together create the cycle of life, they are universal energies that represent all aspects of life, from the flow of the seasons to the journey of the human heart. These energies, represented in the book as the Celtic Deities, correspond to the ancient esoteric wisdom of the Tarot, which means 'wheel'. Within the book each of these 'Faerie Enchanters' is represented by words and meanings conected to their aspect. By combining these words you create an affirmation or statement, which is the purpose of your spell. In order to form the structure of your desire specific items, symbols or imagery make up the process of your spell. This active structured creativity plants the seed within your subconscious. The very act of creating the spell establishes a connection with a deeper realm via your subconscious, which in turn aids you in fulfilling your desires.
The Faerie Enchanters Grimoire will include step-by-step instructions on how to create magical spells, charms and enchantments from the Faerie Realm. Featuring the complete magical system from my Faerie Enchantments Magik Divination Cards, along with new illustrations, more sample spells and card spreads, the magical properties of gemstones and additional magical exercises.
The Faerie Enchanters Grimoire can be used as a companion to my Faerie Enchantments magik divination cards, as a larger reference book with full colour images of the Gods and Goddesses to aid visualization when working with the Fae.
The book can also be used independently of the card deck as it contains all the instructions required to create your unique enchantments along with the magical correspondencies and imagery of all the Faerie Gods and Goddesses.

SIGNED ART PRINTS

Each print is presented in a protective sleeve with backing board and an insert with descriptive text. These can be framed with or without the rose border.
I have also created 3 'Spell Cards'. These 6 x 4 inch cards are for writing out a special one-off Enchantment in order to enhance its potency. They can also be given as a written 'Spell -Gift' to a loved one, where you create a specific Enchantment for them. Each has a gloss finished image on one side (related to the type of spell) and a place to write your spell and rune on the reverse. I decided to use a black backdrop for the writting area, because it will look extra special with gold or silver writting :) (just means you'll need a metalic pen, 'Sharpies' pens work wonderfully).

Risks and challenges
As with any new project there may always be unexpected obstacles or delays. I have undertaken a great deal of research for the project, and have had extensive talks with the printer and various shipping and fulfilment companies. The fulfilment company I am working with have given me detailed information regarding shipping rates and costs for worldwide shipping, they work extensively with Kickstarter project distribution. Having worked in publishing for some time I am used to meeting deadlines, and will do my upmost to deliver your copies the Faerie Enchanter Grimoire, Faerie Enchantments deck and the art prints on time. I will also be sure to keep you updated should any delays arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
