A Huddle of Kindly Witches (Somerset Studio)

I am sharing a trio of kindly witches, they do not mean you any harm.
The trio are still bubbling over with the excitement of making an appearance in Somerset Studio (Sep/Oct issue).  They are aware that if it were not for some generous people, they would not have the opportunity to make this appearance so shout-outs to Catherine Moore Character Constructions, Redlead Paperworks and Oxford Impressions along with a thank you to Anne Redfern who kindly gifted me some pumpkin die-cuts.

None of the dolls are articulated but I do like to angle the arms, it brings more character to the paper dolls by doing so.fourThank you for your visit to this post.  I hope to share some more drafted posts throughout this week, a mixture of projects.

    Wow, what an incredible little work of art! She’s adorable Lynne. Crumbs there’s so much work gone into making this. I love the whole thing … but my absolute favourite bit is …. her shoes. Aw, I’d love some shoes like that. Just for fun … not for going out in, obviously. But just to sit, with them on and kind of waggle them in a witchety fashion. LOL… That would be enough fun right there.
    GREAT make Lynne. Well done, you clever thing. ~ Cobs. x

    They are wonderful Lynne, each so special and different from the others, and each with its own special details. Love the spools with the tulle, and the skirts -and also their sweet faces.You made them so alive with your perfect adds of stamped fussy cut pieces, fabrics, and flowers.

    Three delightful witches indeed! Apart from the shoes and the scribbled wings, I love the way you dressed the waistbands, it gives each one her own identity, they are wonderful, and so tall too! Thanks for the shout out, so happy to see you embracing the fun of Halloween!! Hugs, Anne xx

    I think they are bewitching!…trying to appear coy and all the while dreaming up mischievous little tricks for Halloween. Oh, but how sweet they are. Staining the cardstock before stamping the arms, faces and torsos is such a great idea. I’m a big fan of handwriting in art work. Love that you wrote on the wings and hat. The skirts are wonderful. And you always have added such beautiful touches of fabric and trims to your creations. All the little bats and pumpkins have put me in the mood to create a little BOO for my grands. Congratulations on another publication, Lynne . Thank you for sharing with us. Injury xx
