Halloween

BOO!

I love Halloween, so I have 2 tags to share.

AN OLD, OLD WITCH

The first is The Old, Old Witch. My mom taught me this song when I was little and it is the only Halloween carol that I have ever heard. I used the Dylusions spray for the background orange and the yellow to tint the Tim Holtz moon. Then I wrote the lyrics of the song on the tag.

An old, old witch, believe it if you can, tapped on my window sill and ran, ran, ran. She ran helter skelter with her toes in the air, corn shucks flying from her old witch hair. Who-o-o went the owl, meow went the cat, flop went the hop toad sitting on her hat. "Whe-e-e-e," chuckled I, "what fun, what fun."  It's Halloween night when the witches run.

 

 

UNDER THE SKULL MOON

This tag is painted with a blue paint and then Dylusions black spray is on top of that. On top of that, I sprayed black again, over a mask of dots. The color is really beautiful, far prettier than it shows in the pictures. The moon used the Dylusions orange and yellow spray over a little skull I cut out and used for a mask and then highlighted with markers. At the bottom I drew a haunted castle, complete with faces for windows and tiny bats flying around.

  12. Both great, but think I like the sing best. The white writing makes it seem really mysterious.
