Hello my little pretties!!
'Tis way waaaay early from All Saints Eve, but this year I'm on a mission to surprise a friend with a few gifts for her favorite holiday...
I've locked myself in the dungeon and like a mad doctor have been diligently working away, creating life for the celebration.
Here are my first two offerings I'd like to share with you.
Metalina The Wobbly Witch
Her torso and hat and are patterned out of cardstock that has been covered in metallic tape, sewn, stuffed and colored with Adirondack Inks.
The shoe was designed using a plastic sock insert out of the baby department that I wrapped in tissue paper and formed to a point and then hardened with Mod Podge and finally painted in black.
The bats are cut from my Silhouette machine and powder embossed.
The broom is made from elements I found in the woods.
A little cheesecloth cape and this quirky little witch is ready to fly away to her new home .
But she won't be traveling alone....
Maven - Protector of Pumpkins
Here sits Maven, the round black raven, on his perch keeping watch.
Maven started as a clump of Sculpey clay and metal.
"Mr. DeMille, he's ready for his close-up."
My apologies...I get distracted so easily. Now where was I?
Oh yes...back to the Raven, Maven.
Here he is on side view sporting his wings of cardstock and powder embossing.
The pumpkin patch process....
More of the coloring process. Copic markers work fabulously on Sculpey clay.
And viola...all done
I've even constructed a little nest on a branch for Maven to keep his pumpkins all together safely.
As you can see they are all ready for their departure.
I'm most certain they are going to be warmly welcomed into their new home!
Happy EARLY Halloween to you all and especially to Sandy!
Hugs and Happy crafting,
