A Little Witch Kraft

The Challenge over at Simon Monday Challenge is: Witch Kraft. Wow, I love kraft paper and of course, I always love a little witchy. Here's my project:

My project started with a kraft glassine pocket that I embossed with the Bubbles folder from the Waves & Bubbles Set. I wanted the bubbles to resemble the bubbles from a boiling pot of witches brew. I originally thought I was only going to make a pocket of spells but that soon changed into a scrapbook layout. 

Once I decided I wanted to create a scrapbook layout, the theme was perfect, I love to use kraft paper when I scrap. I selected a couple of different kraft papers and I was happy. Next I misted the paper with water and started applying Distress Paint - picket fence. 

I love the look with the paint on the kraft. 

It tones the paper down.

Now I can stamp a little witchiness. I was a little leery that my stamps might now show as good as I wanted them to so I stamped on tissue paper then adhered them with Claudine Hellmuth's multi-medium matte.

I know you are wondering about these two cute little Wizard of Oz characters "Toto" and the "Lion."  The are my grandsons!

The matte for the picture was made from another piece of kraft glassine that I crumbled up then distressed with gathered twigs. I did pat the glassine after I inked it to remove any excess ink then heat dried it.
