That went by in a blink! I created more fall goods than I think I ever have and they actually sold, so I just kept making it. I pretty much sat down at 8 to paint and create and did not finish until 10 pm every day, stumble bleary eyed in to bed, get up and do it all over again. In between all the pumpkin paint, I ordered massive amounts of bottle brush trees, the most expensive being the tiny little guys on wood blocks. Most places I looked wanted $38 a dozen! I did a little better, but they were still crazy expensive. I bought some large trees in grays and browns, decided they are a little too somber, so will be trying my hand at dyeing trees, I will let you know how that goes. I decided I would absolutely not make any paper doll creations this year, then Mr. Tim Holtz showed up on youtube giving demos of his new Halloween and Christmas lines, and the next thing I knew, I had ordered every single thing in the line and then some. I cannot put those dolls down, they are so much fun to create with!
Here is a bit of the Halloween I did with my purchases:
This is "The Spirit Merchant", my paper doll fortune teller, loved creating this little spooky room for her to work in.
