Prissy Witchy

Not every Witch is ugly & dark.

I am here today to prove that theory with a prissy missy Witch.

I began with the darling Witch Poo wooden hat from Foundations Decor, it comes complete with a playful spider!
The raw wood is high quality, fully sanded and ready to go. Paint, paper, inks, Gel Press monoprints all work with the delightful project.  I thought that we should give a good vibe to the gal who will wear this hat.  Therefore...glitter and prissy was in my mind.  

BUT  there is also a dark side to this project.  Good Witch or Bad Witch?

  • Paint the hat and both sides of the spider with black paint
  • Use Aleenes glue to sporadically place glitter
  • Sprinkle one side with very fine iridescent pink 
  • Sprinkle remaining with med. weight black glitter
  • Coat hat band with med. weight pink glitter & add a gem.
  • Coat one side of spider with pink medium weight
  • Coat the other side with lime green glitter
  • Cut collage images and adhere with pop dots

Assorted Halloween Ribbon

 Here is another rendition of the hat in a more traditional look.

Thanks for stopping today, please leave a comment to let me know you were here.

 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.
