Above is a card that I made using ideas from
a book titled Outstanding Mini Albums by Jessica Acs.
I drew and cut out all of the elements myself,
rather than using pre-made scrapbook items.
I saw these spooky eyes on the internet
and thought they were fun!
The negative space suggests the eyes...
just orange card stock glued onto black
with white gel pen highlights...
I drew pumpkins on orange card stock, mounted them
on patterned card stock, then glued the outside
edges onto the card to make a pocket.
The name on the card is covered by the scrap
of black, just temporarily for this post...
I am very pleased with the way the tag
turned out. Skull drawn on white card
stock, cut out & glued onto black;
white gel pen border,
and various hole punch dots from
card stock for the polka dots.
Unfortunately I do not know the designer for these cute
Halloween sculptures. I purchased them at a very reduced
price at a flea market. They are probably 'seconds' or
overstock, but I love their whimsy!
Above, my Halloween boxes on top of the
inevitable electronics. The reproduction sculpture of
Egyptian queen Nefertiti (I had a thing for Egyptian art in college-
and it's never gone away!) has been crowned with a witch's hat.
My son-in-law thought it was really weird to have a black
sculpture of a head in the house. My daughter just said
"It's an art thing."
It was my son-in-law's idea to add the hat...
I liked it!
Some of the pincushions I've made. These are some
that look a bit "fall-ish." I really like the
blackbirds, which I adapted from a Prairie Schooler
pattern. There are a lot of cross stitch pieces in my house!
The pear-shaped pincushion in the upper right came from
a free pattern on the Samplers and Santas blog.
Nefertiti looks lovely in her hat...don't you agree?!
Just had to include one art journal page...
Linking up with T Tuesday today, over at
Altered Book Lover's blog.
And adding my 'virtual' tea mug...
Thanks so much to all who visited the
Notforgotten Farm blog to vote for my
penny rug bag! (#4) Voting ends on Halloween,
so there's still time if you haven't stopped by. There are many
wonderful primitive cross stitch designs in her shop,
and a terrific assortment of Finishes of this
Hope you have a colorful and delightful
Halloween...watch out for chocolate!
