Wicked heart, fun witch!

She was inspired by a dress makers stand at my friend's store. The stand was originally white. I swiped it, painted it black and sculpted the head out of paper clay over a Styrofoam base. Her wicked heart is paper clay as well, stamped with Martha's Gothic stamps then both head and heart were airbrushed. The cape and fringe around the heart are sewn crepe paper. Her hair is black raffia combed out to a fine texture.



Glitter and skulls and crepe paper =

The skull wreaths were just for fun, I did some similar last year for Halloween displays. This year I added the crepe ruff collar and fringed party hats. Kinda fun to see what you can do with some spray paint, foam skulls, glitter and crepe paper! The black pine wreaths are available at Michaels, I believe they retail for $3.99. The white skull was coated with diamond dust glass glitter, the orange with Martha Stewart Fire Opal glitter. Both have Martha Black Onyx glitter eyes and noses. I did a couple matching skull batons to accompany the wreaths, they do not hold a candle , however, to Melissa Valeriote's....if you haven't seen Melissa's work, check her out http://theholidayqueen.blogspot.com/ . She has some very cool pieces available on etsy!!

One of my resolutions/ambitions for 2008 is to start a blog. Had I known it would have been as simple as the few steps I just followed, I would have started long ago!!

I have admired so many creative individuals for so long and visited their blogs in awe of their talents...
