Crafty Thursday: Two Little Witches

I recently made two witch dolls inspired by the books I enjoyed as a child. An Amazon recommended book-list helped me remember that one of my favorite books was Little Witch, by Anna Elizabeth Bennett. Other books I really liked were The Resident Witch and The Witch Who Saved Halloween, both by Marian T. Place, The Wednesday Witch, by Ruth Chew, and The Witch Family, by Eleanor Estes. I was also fond of The Witch Next Door, by Norman Bridwell, and am sad that this book is out of print while Bridwell's large rouge canine continues to thrive.

Love your "little witches"--and the backdrop and scenery.

Thank you, Tanita, LSM, and Elaine. I enjoyed creating them. I'm also pleased that I finally know how to tinker with colors in Photoshop so that the purple in the photo matches the purple as you would see it in person.
