Artful Thursday- Paper Pumpkin Girls
My very favorite holiday is Halloween. And although I am in no rush for the holidays to come, I find myself thinking of fun things to make for this magical holiday. Earlier this spring I found the cutest Halloween cross stitch pattern. A sweet pumpkin girl with a quirky cat. I don't cross stitch but I purchased the pattern anyway knowing I would turn the art it into a paper doll. I thought I could just whip her out but she took just a little longer than I thought. The hardest part was painting the face. I didn't care for the face on the pattern so I had to come up with my own face design. In the end I think she turned out pretty cute. But my question is- hair or no hair? I can't decide which I like best!
There are so many fun Halloween papers to choose from. I loved putting together the paper outfits.
My quirky cat!
The details are always the most fun in creating paper dolls. I purchased this tiny skull last year from Stampington and Company. I used ribbon and tulle to add a little whimsy to their dresses. I used black glitter from my BFF- Martha Stewart's products.
I thought a little Halloween Giveaway was in order since I was a complete DUD and missed last weeks Artful Thursday! Leave a comment and tell me which way you like the paper doll- hair or no hair. I will pick a winner next Friday when I make my Artful Thursday Post.
