She's faceless, but she still watches over my craft haven. After all, she's a witch. Made from an old paintbrush and a rather uninspiring doll body she now has painted, but laced up boots. She's decked out with bloomers, an old lace petticoat and a scrappy witch skirt. Keys hang from her zipper belt and she holds knitting needles to ward off evil. The feathers are just vanity! Don't cross my craft room threshold with bad thoughts!!

And I made this for me, just me. She's hanging on my wall and I smile every time I see her. I may add a face someday, but then again. Maybe not.

So cool!  A little crafty witch!  She is adorable.  And I see a face.  She has a nose and two eyes just at the edge of her steal head band Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Eyes are the window to the soul. My idea is to add at least that for a face. Do what you like. Neat project. I like it.
Very creative. I like the purple one best, but that is my fave color. And valentine kissy lips wouldn't hurt, either  Grin

Every studio, craft room, stash closet or crafting corner needs one. And we all have old brushes laying around. If you don't have one, keep asking, someone does. Or buy a cheapie and doll it up! Also look up altered paintbrushes on craftster...there are some doosies.
