Ding Dong the witch is dead

Hello everyone! This is my first post for the new term of VLVS! Today is a journal page.

I've been really liking the Oreo cookie ads that Have been in magazines the past few months. I saw the one for the Halloween Oreo's and knew I had to do a journal page with it and VLVS!stamps.:)



As you can see the cookies are legs of a witch.I instantly thought if the Wizard of Oz when the house Fell on the Wicked With of the East. I have to say I should of done this page on the other side, as would of liked the legs closer to the edge of the page, and not next to the holes. But the page turned out great!

The background I used two orange craft paints. a light orange and a bright orange  I put some on the page and with my pallete knife I spread the paint all over the page. I then took a baby wipe to spread the paint out  more on the page. I took the Star punchenllia that I was RAK'ed, with black craft paint put some on the page with a sponge. I then took a brick stencil and some Golden light molding paste(it was one of those little jars from the mediums starter set) and with the CLEAN pallet knife put the molding paste on the stencil. 

After it dried I deiced to leave it white. I took the tree background  and stamped the top pf the branches in Black archival ink pad around the edges of the page. 

I glued the Cookie legs on a piece of lightweight chipboard (cereal box) to give it some sturdiness. I put some foam tape in it to give it some dimension to the page. First time ding that on a journal page. I then stamped the Wicked Witch With Broom on white cardstock with black Memento ink pad. colored her face with green color pencil. fussy cut her out and put her on the page like she is standing on the legs of "her sister"


For the page title I went through my stash of alpha stickers and pulled out these green and black ones. Stuck then on to White glossy cardstock. The cut that out and glued the word blocks on the page. Then they stuck out like a sore thumb with all the white. So I took the Black Soot Distress ink pad and a water brush and painted the white glossy cardstock.
