It’s that time again! Time for the Smeared and Smudged member’s blog hop.

The theme is CONFESSIONS SMEARED IN INK! With this month’s Mother’s Day celebration we thought it would be fun to have a few confessions from our members….Use your art to show us something you have never told your Mom about yourself…or about something you have done. Step outside your comfort zones – the smudgier the better!!!

Okay all here is my confession:

Since I was about 13, I have wanted to be a witch, a real witch. I wanted to be able to fly and cast spells. I even tried to do spells when I was younger. It didn’t work because I understand now, I was doing it all wrong. I use to watch the “Bewitched” TV show and wanted to wiggle my nose and have my room all clean without lifting a finger he he.

My mom told me that there is not such thing as a good witch that all witches are bad. I didn’t believe her then, and now I know the difference. For example the Pentagram if the point is facing up = Good. If the point is down= Bad/ Dark craft

Here is a closer view of my art piece for today. I painted with acrylic craft paint on an 8×10 piece of canvas first, then added my elements. The “Witch” is from Ike’s Art (Follow the link to get yours She is having a SALE)  The “Alter Candles” are from Smeared Ink. (Follow the link to get yours) The other items I retrieved from the web.

I colored my digi stamps with Prismacolor pencils and baby oil (as a blender.) The reason for the different colors of candles is:

White candle= Clarity, Purification, Protection (7th Chakra)

Green candle= Healing, Prosperity, New Beginning, Growth (4th Chakra)

Blue candle= Meditation, Tranquility, Peace (5th Chakra)

Lavender candle= Intuition, Dreams (7th Chakra)

Close up view of Ike’s Art “Witch” digi (Symbolizing me.)

My mom does not know how many stones and crystals I have either. And she does not know that I have Witchy books.

This one here “The Way of the Green Witch” is a pretty good book IMO. The way of the witch is Harm None!

The Chakra Bible is a really good book IMO. I have have just rented from the Library two other “Esprit” type books. That I am going through now. One of them I am finding very intriguing.

So that is my confession when other girls wanted to be Ballerinas and ware tutus, I wanted to fly on a broom. I even tried to fly on our house broom when I was younger. With that said I have a confession to make about my confession, when I was a child my mom did put me in Tap, Dance, Ballet, and Gymnastics. I was very flexible and I did do great in class my favorite was Gymnastics, and the balance beam. My teacher would use me as a “show and tell” doll, meaning she would be like “Okay Kristy do a back-bend, now class this is how it looks.” (I am using back-bend as an analogy) It didn’t matter what it was she was always calling on me to show the class what she was talking about.

Well I hope you like my confessions for today, and that it wasn’t too long and boring for you! Thank you for stopping by and Thank you for your comments. If you have questions for me I do not mind a bit, ask away. If you want to email me your questions on the side that is fine too. There is nothing you can ask me that I would get offended over.

It is time for you to visit Lady Brayton!

    You know that I love you no matter what. I love your art & I think you are a fantastic artist!!! Now I can’t wait to hear about the “talk”. LOL

  2. Fabulous witchy creation Kristy. Fly your witch flag high and proud! I can’t imagine being told that good witches don’t exsist. But then again, my grandparents were magicians, so magic was always a part of our lives. My Mother dabbled in Wicca a bit too. And I turned out perfectly fine! LOL!

  3. Kristy says:

    See you turned out fine, and I grew up in 1st in a Baptist church, then mom converted us to Catholic.My brother and were always in one church or another. And I have turned out a bit F’d up LOL! My mom always told me that Wiccans/ Pagens/ Witches were a cult.

  4. Jane says:

    A great witch piece love that you tried to fly on the broome when you were young lol xxx

  5. kemperneck says:

    That is an awesome art piece. One of my favorites cause you are talking about you..
    I’m like you I always watched Bewitched and wanted her power’s too. I also like that Jeannie show. Your books look very interesting. I get into the stone’s and stuff. I have 1 amethyst stone. That’s all I have. Maybe someday I will get a few more. Not much stuff like that is offered here in this small town. I’ll have to get with you for places online good for things like that.
    It’s hard for alot of our older ancestor’s to understand stuff like that. Maybe they just lived alittle closer to the Salem witch times than we did. Glad they dont still believe like that today. Be a bunch of us stoned huh?
    I think White Magic stuff is very interesting to read about.
    Thanks for sharing

  15. torisearcey says:

    Me too Me too me too! I’ve always wanted to be a witch as well and envy those that are. The only thing holding me back is time. I would love to do research and have ordered loads of books but have never gotten the time to read them. I actually just downloaded one from Kindle to my tablet so I might actually get to read that one since it’s easier to keep with me for the extra spare seconds in my day. 😉

    This is a beautiful canvas – I really love the background! Thanks for sharing your secret with us and I hope you don’t get into too much trouble if your mom finds out!!
