Instead of buying ready made Halloween masks this year I thought I would create some fun
You only need a few supplies….
and they are probably things you keep stocked up on at home.
Start off with some interesting antique photographs, altered with mysterious little black construction paper masks. Enlarged on a photo copier….
Use crepe paper, card stock, wooden craft sticks, glue, sparkly pipe cleaners, tinsel and whatever else you might have stashed away to decorate your paper paddle masks.
Finally finish them off with a bit of chalk paints added to cheeks and to liven up their dull wardrobe. Lastly don't forget to poke holes where your eyes will go so that there won't be any stumbling around in the dark!
Here's to a Happy, Healthy and perfectly Haunted Halloween!!!!!
There was a single specific moment in time when it struck me, " I just might be an artist!" And I must admit it was quite a relief. This explains everything, it all makes perfect sense now! Those frantic urges to quickly search out paper and pen, a lack of attention for the ordinary and mundane but endless patience and diligence for anything frivolous or whimsical!
Then there are those impulses bordering on near obsession with all things quirky and impractical. As my squirreled away misfit collections of the odd and interesting grew so did the desire to create, the two traveled happily hand in hand. I have always admired my sisters beautiful singing voice, although I try, I can't sing a note. I do however sing through my art! I am a contributing artist, designer and writer to Where Women Create, Where Women Cook, Somerset Life, Romantic Homes, Somerset Studio, Artful Blogging and various other magazines. I've authored several books including Fanciful Paper Projects and most recent Fanciful Paper Flowers. Stampington & Company has recently released my fourth line of rubber stamps.
