Ack... the more you ladies talk about Samhain the more jazzed I get about it! I mixed up a batch of Kyphi incense the other day and started some oils. Hopefully the full moon today will add some inspiration to all of our crafting.  Cheesy

Feywalker- This one year when I was around 6 or 7 I wanted to be April O'Neal for Halloween. My mother refused to let me wear a "hideous yellow jumpsuit". So lame! One day I will make her costume.... *wistful*

Danni- AVON>Mary Kay. I love their lotion. Best of luck!

A group of my friends are going as the members of Clue and I was chosen to be Ms. Peacock. It's gonna be awesome... I'm seeing teal colored sequins....

I do a lot of crafts. I sew, knit, woodcrafting/pyrography, paint, illustrate, papercraft, embroider/hand bead.... I also use natural materials in my crafting, making incense/brewing oils, creating altar items, etc. This is the severely edited version because my stash is so big I could go on foreeeever....  Cheesy

I might have to join the swap after all...  Grin

So my nose is runny which is a tell tale sign that fall is nearly upon us! Hope all you lovely ladies are doing well. I might join in this one, not sure yet. Seems that everyone is having a crazy time in our home lives and I'm no exception. It does feel good to be back, however.  Smiley

I am truly ashamed for posting so late. It's true that sometimes things come in threes, whether negative or positive.

This is the lovely chunky page sent to me by Little Green Dragonfly. It's stunning, and I love Pan's little sculpted face. He arrived with his head floating around in the package but that's nothing a little E6000 can't take care of.




To answer your questions on how I did the batik type colors on my pages, I used a combination of watercolor, wax, india ink, and rubber stamps. I used a layering technique and first saturated the page with water to allow all the colors to run into each other. Then once dry, I only filled in selected areas with color. If you drop regular candle wax on wet watercolors it will not adhere to the page fully. This allows for you to paint around the edges of the wax once more, and then lift the wax from the piece later to reveal a small void of color. I don't think this makes much sense buuut it's all my brain will allow me to express currently.

I hope to join you amazing ladies again soon, but for now can't afford to. On top of all the other mess I very recently got into a car accident which totaled my vehicle and I'll be needing to save for a new one. I'm still here and it is my hope things will be looking up soon. I thank all of you for your patience and kindness.

Gentle Breezes and Blessed Be.

I'm so PUMPED for the shrine swap. Truly I am. Only one more chunky page to finish and I'm sending!  Cheesy

Oookay, this is the lovely chunky page I received from Feywalker! It's Seshat themed, The Mistress of the House of Books, the Egyptian Goddess of Wisdom, Knowledge, and Writing. And I'm pretty sure that she wrote my name in Hieroglyphs on that little scroll  Cheesy I love it!
