Painting Party and a Wicked Witch Sign

Have you ever gone to a painting party? We've gone to Painting with a Twist several times, but yesterday we went to a local shop here in Crosby for a party and had an amazing time! This was an early birthday present from my Mom and she couldn't have given me anything better - love you Mom!

Anne with The Antique Trunk, was an amazing teacher and since there was only 5 of us there it was so much more relaxed and fun. Anne even let us choose a painting that I found online. Thank you Anne for such a fun day!

Halloween, easy Halloween painting, painting party

None of us were sure of painting the witch, so we decided to let the Cricut do the work for us! So much easier and we all loved how it turned out.

Here's the painting that I found online and sent to Anne - 

Our paintings are pretty close to the original, except for the man in the moon. We didn't think we could get that level of detail so we just placed the witch over the moon. 

Of course, I couldn't wait and had to hang mine up today. But it looked a little lonely and I decided it needed a little Wicked Witch Sign.

The witch is a stamp from Inkadinkado that I picked up from Michaels a few weeks ago.

I stamped her on colored paper, but in hindsight, I think it might have been better to stamp her on white paper and fill in the white with colored pencils? Hmm.... next time I'm going to try that. 

It's hard to see in the photo but she has a bit of orange tulle over her skirt and ribbon trim that was hot glued on. Next time, I think she should be purple with a black tutu skirt? The combinations are endless and I know that there are going to be many more versions of her by next Halloween.

The arrow sign came from Hobby Lobby and was painted and covered in a piece of scrapbook paper.

The black and orange bakers twine came from the Dollar Spot at Target and was the perfect finishing touch.
