Now you have to remember that we don't really do Halloween in Australia, despite the chocolate-driven intentions of the children in my street, so this week's challenge at Opus Gluei appeals to the witch in me, as opposed to pumpkins. I hope the Poobahs take their usual relaxed view of things and don't get too cross! Anyway, its taken so long for me to find my work table, not to mention my scissors, paper and double-sided tape that I hope I'm forgiven
So in homage to my favourite Romantic artist, John William Waterhouse, and in deference to the witches of my imagination... here are my three triangles, one circle and one half-circle as per recipe. And I even managed an embellishment or two, if you count the sketchy additions as well as some tiny bits of bling. You might need a magnifying glass to find the half circle, but its there.... follow the line of sight.
I REALLY like the witches in "Hocus Pocus", especially Bette Midler's buck teeth and flaming red hair....and the wonderful Thachery Binx of course (in cat form). I've never been able to look at my vacuum cleaner with quite the same equanimity since..........
Thanks to imdb for the photograph from the movie.

I don't want to think about it, but Christmas is on the way. Yes I've started Christmas shopping (to be truthful, I never really stop), and I've even begun to think about what I might cook for the holiday visitor-fest (now that's a nice thought).... and Christmas goodies have begun to pop up in the nicest places. If you haven't ever visited Taylored Expressions, you've been missing out on lots of lovely things. Click on the badge on the side to see what is in store there for Christmas.... right now!
