Together at last... 2 parties, one post... the best duo since Abbott & Costello or at least "Alien vs Predator"

Just a quick post, it's double the action, double the celebration, it's totally party central & I'm already pouring myself a bubbly in anticipation... For those who haven't visited me before & for my totally wonderful friends that I embrace & adore, a quick recap... I've been Celebrating WITCHES IN FICTION over the past 2 weeks & it has only 2 days to go, it has MEGA, FANTASTIC, more numerous than I can count, giveaways... I kid you not, and Magaly is the wonderful creature that has pulled this wonderful event together, do yourself a favour - go win something...

HANG ON!!!

NOT YET my quick little gazelles...

It's also PAINT PARTY FRIDAY, and I am in like Flynn (that Errol) and would like to share one of my paintings steaming hot off the work desk... and this is the absolutely 'stars aligning' part of this post... It's one of the mixed media paintings I did as part of a giveaway...
I am giving away 3 different pieces of art in total over my "Witchy" posts & this artwork was inspired & produced as part of the celebration, is one of 4 that the winner of my random door prize for "Witches in Fiction" can choose to win, (the other 3 are in the previous post) Sooo anyone & everyone that leaves a comment here goes into the witches hat for Mr Random to make his choice, & if you want to put your name on a comment in my previous posts if you haven't already it counts too, this is like a bonus entry ;) The art for "Paint Party Friday" is a mixed affair, I found an old magazine with the 'Blair Witch" shot, tore up papers, found vintage 'wizard' shots from an old ballet book, did a very messy stencil, used stars, little diamonds (not real), glue, yes some on the art, some over the floor, acrylic paint, pastels, & wool & ribbon with a couple of beads & you can hang art as is or tie other little sentimental 'bits' to the wool, it's on plyboard...  and that's it...
So Pleeeeeese make a comment here & Please look at all the other artistic offerings at the Paint Party & head on over to Magaly (links above) to add a little magic to your Friday ;) Have a great weekend & as my old fav Keanu would say... "PARTY ON DUDE!"

Nice to see the work develop. The photo eye adds just the right amount of creepy (of the good kind) : )

Oh mercy - these are some kind of fanfreakintastic I may have to slap someone's child.

It reminds me of my series of Little Loa that I did a while ago. Kiddie versions of the Baron and Oya and Marie and so on... I wonder if I have any pics around here. You'd dig it.

I am going to comment on the other post. I want. I want. I want.
