Every so often I imagine that fall is here. It is my favorite time of year. If the breeze is cool enough and the sun is low in the sky, it's no longer turning in to summer. Instead...the seasons are moving directly into fall! I take advantage of those special moments, when you smell wood burning and hear leaves rustling, to work on Halloween pieces. Watch for more listings on eBay, as we head into the warm days of summer, on our way to fall!
I love mixing paper and fabric to come up with original folk art for Halloween. My Victorian paper doll witch is the perfect example! Her skirt is filled with tulle to make it full and then I've used vintage-style millinery netting over it. Don't you think it gives it the perfect gothic feel? And she is a favorite image of mine from my collection of Victorian scrap books. This spooky gal is about 17" tall, and has a unconventional glass glitter witches hat. She is the perfect door greeter for Halloween! (She has a hook in the back for easy hanging.) If you like her, visit my page on SpookyTimeJingles.com where she is currently available.
Also, if you're in Southern California, look for me at Glitterfest on Saturday, May 22, 10 am - 3 pm, at the Elks Lodge in Santa Ana. I always have a bit of Halloween available, no matter what time of year. Hope to see you there!
I am a mixed media artist living in the oldest, continuously occupied city in the nation, St. Augustine, Florida! I love to create with paper mache and paper, as well as paint watercolors. Halloween and Christmas are favorite holiday inspirations, as is nature. Remember, each day is a gift.
