Witches Cabinet by Dianna

Hi, Everyone! Dianna here with my Halloween inspired by Gina's Designs cabinet and Graphic 45's Rare Oddities Collection.

First I painted the cabinet black and then laid the pieces out on the Graphic 45 Rare Oddities - Brews and Potions paper to get the sections of the paper that I wanted.  The cabinet was glued together, without the paper on, with Beacon 3 in 1.

I ended up cutting and piecing sections in the order that I wanted, so that it does not look like the original paper anymore.  The paper was then glued on the cabinet. Black ink was used on the edges of the paper.  

I then fussy cut matching bottles and scroll work, inking the edges. I used chipboard strips to pop them up.  

The owl and butterfly were fussy cut from the Graphic 45 Rare Oddities - Ghostly Greeting.  I inked the edges and used a gold paint pen on Gina's Wooden Decorative Key.  Black ink was used to distress the key and used a bronze Sharpie on clear stones then placed the stones on the key. Chipboard scrap was used to give the owl some support.  Then I glued the owl and butterfly to the key and the key to the cabinet. 

I painted one of Gina's spiderwebs black and used purple Stickles to give a little bling.  I labeled the bottles and put some glitter and micro beads in them as frogs eyes.  I then labeled the books that I had gotten on clearance. 

I can place everything in drawer for storage when the Holiday is over. 

Lastly, I painted Gina's new three witches (the pretty one) white, then used markers to draw her hair, skin and top. I used the back of the Rare Oddities to create the skirt.  

I did not want to glue her to the cabinet so I designed a stand using chipboard strips and strips from an envelopes that were mailed to me using priority mail.  Yes, I save everything.  

Thank you for looking!
