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)

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!
