The Beginning of the Great Pumpkin Adventure...

Well, yesterday was a day of fun, learning, fortune telling, tears, laughter and pain..........LOL Joycee of Enchanted Productions, Brenda of Little Dollings and I all three got together to try our hands at paper mache pumpkin making! Now let me tell you......we were all "paper mache virgins" heading into this adventure. And basically of right now.....still are! But what fun we're having learning!

It all started when we saw this website by Scott Stoll! If you are a Halloween lover, then you have to go see for yourselves!

Below is a pic of the 3 of us after our long day of Pumpkin making and man were we ever tired and achy! We had no idea that pumpkin making was such a back breaking job! lol But a little Advil and a good nights sleep has made me forget about the pain..........kind of like giving birth.........LOL!

Only these babies pictured below are still waiting to be born! This was the first step of stuffing the garbage bags with crumpled newspapers, then using twine and masking tape to define the ridges. Cardboard tubes were used for the beginning form of the stems.

And here's my pumpkin at home today trying to get it dry out in the sun and the wind. Only problem was, while it was sitting out there, the skies began to darken and I heard rain!!! OH NO!!!!!!!!! Now the sun is shining (again) and I have it sitting stem side down on a large sap bucket to dry it's bottom. IS like having a baby! LOL

A special "Thank You" To Laurie Hardin of Monkey Cats Studio for throwing us a lifeline while we had our hands deep in glue, water and liquid starch! She has been a wealth of paper mache knowledge these past fews days and we love her for that!

So stay tuned for the continuing WIP of the Great Pumpkin Adventure and make sure that you visit Brenda and Joyce's blogs for more pics!

EHAG Frightful Fete 3rd Anniversary Giveaway!

Make sure you hurry over to the EHAG Art Blog to sign up for some wicked cool giveaways in honor of their 3rd Anniversary!

Pictured above is my donation to the EHAG blog giveaway. I painted this Halloween/Fall wood candle holder that measures 6" square. I painted it black and distressed it, then painted on bittersweet berries with leaves and curly vines. It has a textured black painted brass knob in the center on which to hang the candles. The black nubby taper candles measure 7" long.

Good Luck everyone!!
