Wicked Witch plaque

This is a plaque that I just finished. I will be hanging it on my front porch (it represents how I have been feeling lately, LOL)

I took 2 pieces of wood that I found while taking my dog for a walk one day. I saw them and thought, huh, I could make something with that. Come on, you all know you have done that before!

First I started by sanding them then Then I used some white craft paint from Apple Barrel and painted both sides and of each piece. I then took Americana acrylic paint called Pumpkin and painted the outside edges. I found some images on the internet and traced them and then painted them with DecoArt Carbon Black. For the green areas, I used Faber Castell Big Pitt brush and the orange around the rim I used Faber Castell orange Gelato. When everything was dry I went over it with DecoArt traditions satin varnish. I then used some raffia to make the broom and used small twigs from my yard. I then glued them on using Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue.

Here is the finished product, side 1 when I am home and side 2 when I leave the house LOLOL

Seems I need to wash my siding this spring...
