Yoga skellie pumpkin


 Hallo,
   Preposting this for you to see today since I have to be to work early this am....
   I did this for the pumpkin decorating contest at my local Arts Centers Halloween party, which was last night (sadly it didn't win...)
  I took a turquoise hard foam pumpkin and decorated it with zentangle and then added some cobwebs in white. I found this great yoga skellie at JoAnns and added some shading with copic markers and the black cat is a wood cut out that I painted black and then used some silver webbing spray on.
  I had fun with this one and he is going to be in my Halloween decorations box for many years.
  The party was loads of fun - I dressed up as Frida Kahlo - my daughters comment was "Oh good, you found a costume to go with your eyebrow" - cheeky kid - pic at the bottom of the post.....I am the Frida on the right, there were 2 of us Fridas…...

Baby Boy gift box set


 Hallo,
   A quick post this evening as I am winding down for the night. I finished off this baby box set for a coworker today.
  I covered a wooden box from JoAnn's in pretty papers - boy style and did the memory book and card to match.
  I have one more box in the works and then I may have to take a break and get my Christmas cards done, and tomorrow I will show you the last of my Halloween projects.

  The weather here in NW Florida has been absolutely AWESOME!!!!!
I love the cool weather!!
  I pulled weeds today for about 2 hours and only have a little bit to go to get my flowers beds all caught up on the weeding from my lack of weeding over the summer.
   Its been a bit of a challenge to do yard work as I am back to using a cane - I am getting my left knee replaced in January and it has been pestering me a lot lately(If I use the cane I don't limp as much, and if I can keep from limping my hip and back don't ache as much.....) And to top it off I jammed the big toe on my right foot yesterday and it is pretty swollen and bruised. And Yes Klutz is my middle name.....

Another baby gift set...


Hallo,
  Back with another baby gift set - box, memory book and card that I made for a coworker.
  I used an image I found on Etsy from 'pattiescreations' and colored it with prismacolor and polychrome pencils.
  I don't do black skin tones very often so its not perfect but I liked how it turned out!.
  I have 2 more baby boxes in the works - both boy themed so should see them soon. Also will have a day in the studio on Saturday and hope to accomplish something there too.
 
  I am really enjoying the cooler weather here in NW Florida - hope it stays around awhile!!!
   All for now - as the saying goes, I didn't win the lottery so back to work I go....

Coffin treat boxes


Hallo,
  A break from Halloween cards today - showing you some treat boxes that I am sending to my daughter (in Germany), my son-in-law (headed to Korea) and my Niece and Nephew from Colorado(just because).
  These coffin shaped boxes started out plain and I painted 2 black and 2 red and then used some silver webbing spray on them - found the can in my stash and its pretty old so didn't get much 'web' out of it but it looks kinda cool anyhow.
  Added some skeletons, skulls, 3D pictures, covered the inside of the boxes with Halloween papers, oh and some funky eyeballs that I found last year after Halloween.
  Well time to Halloween up my house a bit and maybe get in the pool and take advantage of the hot weather.

Pirate cards


Hallo,
  A couple batches of Pirate themed Halloween cards today. I found the cool xray embellishments at Michaels for 50 % of, plus a 20 % coupon so I was pretty happy.
  I am not sure who the pirate skelly head is from as its been used a lot and the name is worn off - might be Stamps Happen …..
   One of my goals for 2019 is to send out more cards - and I am getting a bit of a head start. I love Halloween and haven't even decorated my house yet...sad I know...but the hubby is out of town this weekend so maybe I will get to it tomorrow afternoon. Today I am taking a watercolor class at the local Art center (ADSO) and then hanging out at the gallery for Artist Day - HH ARTS.
   All for now - more Halloween cards coming....
