I was at the grocery store yesterday, and had to walk by and feel the pumpkins, ohhh I'm getting excited!!!
I think I'm decorating this weekend, going to a wedding on Saturday, and have a FUN blog hop planned for next weekend. I'll give some details on that here in a bit.
First I want to share a little project I worked on this morning for a Swap coming up, I'd love to show you all the goodness this swap consists of, but I have to keep it secret for a little while longer,so Shhhhh ( as she reads my blog) I can't show all my cards just yet...but soon I will ...can't wait to share all the fall magic for this one!
At Halloween there is something so magical to me about crows in hats! I just love the idea of birds celebrating this glorious holiday with melodic singing and gathering together in festive attire fit for a ball! That may sound a tad bit like a crazy person, (but I'll let you in on a secret)... All the best people are! Anyway, enough about me... back to the project.
I found this new great program that I have been playing with, so I thought I would try it out today and see how it goes. Since Halloween is about magic and Whimsy, what better time to play a bit.
So Here he is! Mr Crow, with his festive new party hat. He's a mini crow, which made it even more fun!
After a little digital sprinkling of magic, I must say I am loving this! It's always fun to try new things, and the more one practices, the better one gets. I used some fun black and white french paper for his hat, vintage tinsel,vintage millinery, and some bits and findings.
I like the softness of this one....
I love this effect too!
Hope she loves it!
I really love metal art,So I have been playing with some new ideas, and trying some new things to see if I like it...
Adding a new trick to my bag... SOLDERING! I will admit this is my first attempt at Soldering, it's a lot harder than it looks, for me at least. I'm being brave by sharing these with you, as I am NOT a professional what-so-ever! Again, my FIRST try.
I'll just keep practicing... I bought a few books, Sally Jean's, Pretty Little Things and Collage Lost and Found by Guiseppina Cirincione. Great books and lovely photos in both of these books. I want to take Sally's Soldering for Virgins class and learn some tips and tricks. But have to finish up the two classes I'm taking right now first. I think It will be a great winter project for me!
Oh yes and before I forget, The blog party is: Le Mysterieux Carvival from Frosted Petunias .
I'm really looking forward to seeing all the photos and gypsy fortune tellers and all the magic that this party is going to be! So I hope you return that day, as it's going to be such fun!
Wishing you a creative week, until next time... Have a Magical Day!!!
