Wizard Tilda gets a New Hat and some Exciting News

Happy Saturday,

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! We finally had a sunny day, a little on the cold side but I will take it. Next Saturday is the pumpkin festival which a yearly event. Keene, NH actually made the Guinness Book of World Records 8 times for over thirty thousand carved pumpkins.  My husband and I don't go on Saturday anymore there are just too many people. Keene has about 22,000 and about 28,000 attend the event from all over the country.... So in honor of that I made this spooky witches hat. And lastly, I am so excited I am going to be a guest designer in November for 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog!!!

The hat was fun to make but a bit of a challenge. I bought a cardboard frame at Michaels then I bought fabric from Joannes which I used to cover the hat. I also bought the tulle which I gathered around the brim. Here is a picture of the hat before it was decorated.

Here is a different angle:

How about a closer look at Tilda:

Here is what I used to create my project:
Magnolia Stamp: Wizard Tilda
Copic Markers
Glow in the dark glitter
Liquid glass for her spectacles
Graphic 45 paper: Happy Hauntings
Spider web & Spider
Martha Stewart bat stickers
Flowers, mini pumpkins & broom
Cherry Lynn -Large Flourish Die
Tim Holtz - Clock
Distress Ink - Gathered Twigs

I am entering my project in the following challenges
