A fancy mixed media witch! 43

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, September 27, 2012 @ 8:47 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there! So happy the weekend is here! I have a fun Halloween mixed media canvas project to share. I combined various MFT stamps, felt, Die-namics dies, a few embellishments from Pink Paislee's Vintage Vogue collection, fun Halloween paper from Webster's Pages Once Upon A Halloween collection, paints, inks, stencils, etc... and came up with what I am referring to is my fancy Halloween mixed media witch :) I combined techniques that I learned from both Julie Nutting and Christy Tomlinson. 
I cut the owl from a piece of Webster's Pages paper and perched him on a die cut branch that was made using Die-namics Branch with Leaves. I randomly stamped the smaller diamond pattern from MFT Distressed Diamonds (LJD).
I am so proud of her hat because I drew this by hand then used some of my favorite products to fancy it up ;) The rolled roses were made using Die-namics MINI Rolled Roses along with Gumdrop Green felt which are layered on top of a flourish made using Die-namics Fancy Flourish. The purple jewel at the tip of her hat is from the Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue collection which I had in my stash for nearly a year! 
I stamped the sentiment from Primitive Pumpkins (LJD) on a strip that was cut using a die from Die-namics Sentiment Strips and the shimmery spider was made using Die-namics Spider Web:
I hope you enjoyed my project as much as I enjoyed creating it :) I can't wait to show you the next one ;) Hope you have a great weekend! 
Be Sweet :)
