Who Doesn't Love Witches? My New Hildegarde Ann and Hildegarde Brie Mixed Media Collage Art Dolls With Paper-clay Faces



As a reader of my Linda's Blog you know that I absolutely LOVE Halloween and all the wonderful creatures that can be made like witches, ghosts, goblins, Dracula, Frankenstein, jack-o-lanterns, bats, spiders and spider webs, skeletons, mummies, and so much more. With all that what's not to love abut Halloween.

With all the wonderful creatures that can be made for Halloween out of cloth, wood, cloth and wood, paper, clay, needle-craft, etc. my favorite has to be witches.  So, when I was doing a little cleaning of my craft area I found some 3/4" wood shelf sitter shapes that my husband had cut out for me a few years ago.  I had intended to make a painted figure of some sort out of them.

Well, in looking at the wood I thought they might make perfect mixed media shelf sitter witches with paper-clay faces and collage outfits.   So, I decided to make two of them.


Hildegarde Ann - 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" x 3/4" Handmade Mixed Media Shelf Sitter Paper-Clay and Collage Witch

Hildegarde Ann and her twin sister, Hildegarde Brie can hardly wait for Halloween.  Not because they love scaring people. but because they're good witches and love handing candy out to all the trick-or-treaters.  In fact, they're known in their neighborhood for having the best candy.


Hildegarde Ann is a 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" x 3/4" mixed media shelf sitter wood doll with a painted paper-clay face with black bead eyes, sponge painted wood body and paper collage embellished outfit. Her sides and back are sponge painted in her favorite Halloween colors and her outfit is an embellished paper collage adorned with a jack-o-lantern, clock, bats, a scary insect, raised dots and a ribbon bow. Her gray thick alpaca yarn hair from Masquerade at Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber is barely controlled under her witches hat.  Masquerade's yarn is also wrapped around the band of her witches hat and adorns the brim of the underside of her witches hat.

It's only a couple months until Halloween and Hildegarde Ann can hardly wait.
