Hallowoonie do's here at Casa de Cuckoo.................
Having just gotten my energy back (a little bit at a time), I'm back to crafting, so I have been working on some projects.
I made this string art from old barn wood, the back seat springs from a 1930 something car my neighbor put out for the trash. I am going to do more to it with glass beads and bits but then I needed to get ready for Halloween.
Made these glass topped canning jar captured creatures. A witch with her familiar, a fairy with mushroom, and a lovely moldy dragon. I saw this idea at Pixie Hill Studios, the uber talented Nichola aka Knickertwist made these wonderful fairy jars and I just had to do some as well. Here is a link to her tutorial.
Then I reconstructed an old plastic collection doll that I found in a group of old new stock at a garage sale. I used to play with my sisters collection dolls and always thought they were so cool. So I recreated a Halloween doll that ultimately became the "Veil Keeper" for my entry into Ms. Magaly's Witches in Fiction 2016, spelling and healing into a rotting world. I asked my visitors to name the doll. They didn't know but I am in process with yet another of the "old stock" girls and have drawn a winner for my own giveaway. That announcement will be on Friday.
Google just died and wouldn't let me post any more photos. But I will live to fight the good fight tomorrow and finish this post.
