Welcome to Day 15 of the 31 Days of Halloween

The question of the day is are you a good witch or a bad witch?
This witch in training wants to know....

She is perched on a hat fit for a stylish witch that likes a bit of bling while she's out on the town.  The base of this hat is actually a knitting cone, a cardboard circle and a bit of wire (to help with shaping) covered with a layer of unbleached muslin which was glued in place with Aleene's Tacky Glue.  The entire hat was then covered with a layer of black acrylic paint and Art Anthology's Imperial (purple glitter) Sorbet.

The little witch from the collage sheet - Frightful Images - poses the question as she stands among a couple  "Spooky" tombstones (Sin City Stamps) which have been covered with a layer of Trolley Grey AA Paint.

So, what is it.....
Are you a good witch or a bad witch?

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle. Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today. One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer ab
