Witches Graveyard


This is not the greatest picture because I don’t know how to use my cousins camera very well but my camera is on its way home from California! Please notice the scary eyes in the keyhole of the rusty backdrop. This backdrop and the rusty things piled up on the corner is from a doorknob mechanism that I took apart. The spider web and spider (plastic) were rusted with the new rusting technique that my son came up with for me. This is one technique that I will cover in the Halloween workshop. It is such a cool technique and only takes a few minutes so it is instant gratification. The little ghost witch is printed on transparency and then I cut the point for her hat from the background I cut away. I draped the cheesecloth across the back for the picture so that the little witch would her transparency but it did not work so great. I will try for a better picture when my camera comes home.

You caught me in your web with this piece. It is great! Love the rusted spider web and spider. The stamped fence is a great addition as well. This piece would definitely cast a spell on me and get me in the mood to creat Halloween treasures!

this is brilliant. The gothic railing along the bottom is the most perfect touch. I am definitely going to use that with a hallowe'en project now.
