as most of you know my life has been pretty stressful these past weeks and creating is my way of getting away from all of it even if it's only for a short time. I have worked when ever I felt the need to escape which was almost every day some times only for 10 minutes but now I have completed my creations and can't wait to share them with you.
I told you about my witch's hats that were made from muslin a few posts ago. They sat in my craft room for over a year being some of the few remainders of my primitive times. I used one of my old primitive techniques with this project which was painting the muslin hat with acrylic paint before embellishing it and it worked out very well. These would be called make-do's when it comes to primitives. You use anything you have and just make do with it almost like it is with altered art.
I was going to do a project with these hats involving "good and bad" witches but my daughter Ashleigh made me change my mind about that. Now they are about "light and shadow" witches. Both hats belong to good witches - one that loves the day and one that loves the night. Both believe in God, are gentle and kind and love everything good in this world.
Today I would like to share my first hat with you ~ it belongs to Florence ~ the Witch of Light.
It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, so I will let my pictures speak for themselves.
I hope you have enjoyed my newest creation today!
Tomorrow I will share my other hat creation with you ~ it belongs to Mabel ~ the Witch of Shadows.
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
