Hello all! Lora Mahaffey here in full Halloween mode. My favorite holiday. I know, I have never said that before.
enjoying playing with all the wonderfully rich fall colors. I am
looking forward to rustling leaves, sweater weather and all things
pumpkin (pumpkin muffins!). And tea on the porch wrapped up against the
early morning chill.
The ladies have been doing late night
recon.....flying about, checking on the night birds and woodland
creatures, making sure the forest is healthy, celebrating the night, the
stars and the beautiful moon. All is well, so they've given their
brooms a needed rest and it's time for tea!
I began with the Display Tray Dome (which is coming soon!).
I painted the front frame work black and papered the back with a becoming shade of gray.
the front frame work as a template I lightly drew around it, defining
the spaces and allowing me to work within them without the frame being
in the way. You can kind of see the pencil marks. Sorry for the not very
clear picture, I think you can see what I mean.
then began composing and then gluing the main images into the frames I
liked them in. Trying to be mindful of balance and visual weight. You
can see the pencil marka bit better here.
After all the main players were glued down, I glued the face frame in place. It makes a big difference!
it's time to play! I didn't have a plan for this. I just played with
various things I cut out that caught my eye until they looked right and
the ladies started to take on more personality. I also played with my
favorite tool of the moment...a Sharpie Poster Paint Pen (I like the
acrylic one NOT the oil based one) and added some dots and swirls.
I think this lady really likes her candy corn. And she has pretty fab hair.
And why not a little masked dancing with your favorite bats after tea?
