Witches Work Only With MAGIC!

The above is a quote from one of my favorite movies "The Witches" with Angelica Houston. It was based on a book by Roald Dahl, one of my favorite authors! :)

Anyways...These witches are tags (front and back) that I created for a fabulous Tag Book Swap hosted by Megan Hull! Yay Megan! I made 5 of each color combination for a total of 20. I used the same design on each one because I really liked it - rare for me these days! heh! The black flowers on the front are a transparency I had made with a vintage image of cotton flowers. I hope the other players enjoy them in their books! They do of course look much better in person!

Modigliani's Tree Fairies

Hazel - Green
Laurel - Orange
Myrtle - Purple

I made these for an Art Doll Swap. The legs and arms are from Zetti ( and the faces are from Modigliani paintings. The colors on the legs and arms were done with watercolor pencils. I thought these turned out fun. :)

A Dream Come True in 2 Weeks....

4-Letter Words Book Pages

These were done for a round robin journal with the theme of 4-Letter Words. My word, obviously, was POEM. The poem on the second page was pieced together from phrases and words from a vintage book. The technique is called "found poetry". It's one of my favorite things to do these days.

New Itty Bitty for Christy

This is the new, and I think improved, 3x3 itty bitty collage for Christy - although the scan isn't that great on my poor, abused scanner! I wanted to do something more spiritual for her, and this comes closer to what was in my mind before. Sometimes I have a difficult time creating the things I see in my head. I have a "feeling" and a "look" and then I don't seem to have the supplies or know how to express it visually. It is frustrating as I so want to grow more as an artist. Perhaps once I get my new studio set up in the new place things will come more easily. It will be easier to find my "stuff", that's for sure!! Until then, I hope you like this one Christy!
