Halloween Pumpkin Ghost Shadow Box

I just listed my first shadow box on Etsy. I’ve been wanting to make some shadow boxes for quite some time now but just haven’t been sure what my subject should be. But then Halloween rolled around and I thought, of course, ghosts and spooky things would make a perfect shadow box subject.

I first cut some paper to fit the box and then whipped up a moon graphic in Photoshop (you can download a copy here), glued it on and then cut out a tree from glitter paper.

I made some tombstones from grunge paper (find out how to do this here), printed out “RIP” from my computer (download a copy here) and piled up pumpkins from the craft store around them.

The pumpkin ghost is made from polymer clay and painted with bright purple, lime green, and Halloween orange. His fingers are made from wire wrapped with paper tape and are glued on to the back of his body.

This purple pumpkin head ghost is having a pumpkin fight in the graveyard with friends. He’s got two piles of pumpkins and is launching them across the graves and through the trees.

I had so much fun making this shadow box!

Horny Rhinoceros Note Card

We’ve taken a vintage 19th century illustration from our personal collection and given it a fun caption. Two rhinoceros discuss the size of their horns. Typical of male conversation, the exchange is brief. The first asks “Dude…?” The other replies “Viagra!”

The First Sorrowful Sisters

I’ve just completed my first art dolls and I’m unveiling them here first! They are made from paperclay with styrofoam balls and wooden dowels as an armature. They have yarn hair and coffee filter skirts. The large empty hole in her middle of the first one is her barren womb. The second one is missing a breast. Yes, they are expressions of my own grieving for various issues. I call them my Sorrowful Sisters.
