You might have seen my previous post regarding the BOO sign that I made. Well, that got my creative juices flowing. I found some great paper mache' mask. At first I didn't know what I was going to do with them. I painted one black and one white, then I was like, ok, now what? Decoupage! I got out my patterened papers and set to work. I used this new line by Authentique, which, sadly, I don't think is in business anymore. I decorated a the white mask with feathers and glass bats. It's my favorite. The black one, I started by putting a diamond on it's eye with silver glitter. I found a diamond patterened paper in my pack and used it for the other side of the mask. It looks like a jester, but I like it. I added glittered spiders to make it just a bit creepy. Voila!
The last thing I made was a pumpkin wall hanging. I tried to mimic the BOO sign. I used last year's Anna Griffin paper and cut out the design from the orange paper and overlayed it on the black. I used cheesecloth and wax again because I wanted an excuse to use the wax again.
And, lastly, I saw this idea on pinterest. You take puff fabric paint and create a swirly bead design on a pumpkin. I got the vinyl word from a gal I work with at Scrapbook Barn. She cuts vinyl lettering and designs as a side business with her husband. Anyway, I used a small pumpkin because I wanted my daughter to have something she could put in her dorm room. She loved it, of course.
Thanks for looking and happy hauntings to you!
