I was poking around an antique mall with friends a few weekends ago, when I came upon an old photo that just spoke to me. It was a photo of four women, and the two ladies on the ends happened to have pretty creepy eyes. With Halloween approaching, I knew I just had to make them into a small coven of witches. I trimmed the cardboard the photo was mounted on and added a border made from Dazzles thin line stickers.  The two creepiest ladies each received a nice broomstick, and all were adorned with witch hats. I added a few dark black "buttons", and one skully badge.


Usually, I would scan a photo like this and use the reproduction, but I do feel that using the original photo makes a much better result. It's a little scary gluing things down when it's a one of a kind, but the result is definitely worth it. Below, I enlarged it for you so you can see those eyes, especially on that witch on the left. She's definitely working on a spell.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

WOW! I like to think these ladies are at a witch college reunion and decided to get a group shot in the photo booth.

Has it ever crossed your mind that they could be dead?  Very popular practice to preserve their image

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

No, I didn't think of that. I guess there's no way to actually tell, but I like to think they were both just concentrating on not squinting. Cheesy
