The Scottish Play

 By the pricking of my thumbs
Something evil this way comes
Open, locks
Whoever knocks
 These are my three MACBETH witches! They are a bit confused as they have Russian hats!
They are my inspiration piece for this weeks 
STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS CHALLENGE....the theme this time is FRIGHT NIGHT, this time it is STAMPOTIQUE stamps only.

 Apparently in the play the witches don't have names but in later works Shakespeare refers to them as URSULA, GLENDA and MEDEA, now is it just me or does a witch called Glenda not sound in the least scary? Ursula is Ok but not that scary, the only one that is even vaguely a witch name is Medea!
Now.......maybe there is something to this whole curse thing (you know the one where you not supposed to say the word MACBETH inside a theatre as it brings bad luck to the production and the actors in it).......after I finished this piece I closed my journal to discover that I had worked in it upside down........spooky or what!!!

Beautiful journal pages Sue (upside down will only add to making it more interesting and spooky LOL).
Gorgeous vibrant colours - what inks /colouring stuff do you use?)

Rosie said...

Oh my that IS a bit spooky, but what a great thing to remember when you leaf back through the journal!! Love your spooky pages.

Sarah Anderson said...

I think it was the effect of including some 'white space' on that page - it was all too much for you;) Great journal page, love the stampotique faces as the three witches
