31 Days of Halloween: Beware the Witch! Especially the cute ones!

“My world, my world... How can such a good little girl like you destroy all of my beautiful wickedness.

- Wicked Witch of the North” 

As many of you know, Altered Pages is participating in the Smeared & Smudged 5th Annual 31 Days of Halloween Challenge! The goal is to post a Halloween or Day of the Dead project EVERY DAY with some sort of stamping on it!

So, as promised from the AP Blog, here are some close-ups & instructions to make your own banner panel! (PS - These panels are so affordable! $3.25 for 3 & there are 2 different shapes if you want to make a large banner & mix them up!)
  • Enlarge images as desired & print (the raven & the girl were enlarged to 5x7 & my printer was acting up, so I had to color in her hat with a black marker & then I embossed it here & there.)
  • Type or stamp "Wicked Spirits" on white card stock for bottle.
  • Type or stamp "Are You a good Witch or Bad Witch?" onto metallic paper - ink will be wet enough to emboss if desired. Cut out with a label die or by hand. Stamp & emboss with Grunge stamp (Tim Holtz).
  • Paint banner panel with red paint; let dry
  • Stamp & emboss with Grunge stamp in black (Tim Holtz) & Chicken Wire stamp in yellow (Christy Tomlinson)
  • Loosely cut raven from collage sheet & glue onto chipboard; when glue is dry, fussy-cut raven out
  • Cut girl & skull from collage sheets. (She's holding a cat, so cut the cat away & snip thru her fingers a little to slip the skull through.)
  • Stamp & emboss with black onto metallic papers the bottles from Red Lead; cut out. Cut lid from larger bottle.
  • Arrange images & bottles onto the panel & adhere.
  • Add glue-drizzle from largest bottle to simulate pouring of the "Wicked Spirits" & apply glitter.
  • Attach lace seam binding to holes for hanging.

That's it! Now you have a fun little wall hanging for Halloween!

Thanks for stopping by & be sure to finish the Smeared & Smudged Hop for the day to qualify for the big prize at the end of the month!
I'll be back on the 21st with another project (if not before!), so I hope to see you then!
Cheers & Happy Haunt-Hopping!
