once i saw this idea on flickr, i was on the look out for the perfect book.
i just happened upon a taller old book with the top of the pages inked black at an estate sale a few weeks ago for $.50. i love it!
she makes my heart so happy it is almost silly! i have wanted to create something like this for a while, so when i saw this kit here, i had to have it!! it is amazing the detail that went into creating mixed media piece. so many of these pieces use creepy looking photos, but boo girl is too cute. i love how she fits into my theme. do you think it is too much if i leave her up year round?? maybe they will have a christmas kit. i hope so.here is another picture that includes the pumpkins and gourds. after i painted them black or white, i striped or dotted them and white washed them and put them in a glass jar.
of course, i have more, but it is not finished and might not be. we will see. our weekend is full of festivals and the like. happy halloween!
(fyi: all photos were taken with film by my incredibly generous husband, who only gets slightly annoyed when i ask him to photograph such things ;)
