A Trunk Show, Pumpkin Heads, and Greeting Cards...Oh My!

I'm taking part in a trunk show in September that will feature five local artists, each with their own specialties. Mine will be miniatures and paper arts (with a few clay projects thrown in for good measure!). Here's a sampling of what I've been working on:

 These pumpkin head ornaments are made of paper clay sculpted onto wooden bases. I call them the Dead Heads, but really they are Coed Wizard, Count Gourdula, and Monsieur Le Pumpkin. (Don't you love his little beret?) I hope to have time to make a few more, as well as some snowmen faces. A September show is prime holiday shopping time.

I also make original, mostly OOAK greeting cards. My work is mostly collage (either digital or physical, or a combination) using original, vintage and licensed art. I also use quotes from famous people, as well as original writings. Here are a few of the Halloween/Autumn cards I'm doing, plus the beginnings of a couple of Christmas cards. I love making these cards. Does it show?


 

So, these, along with my miniatures, are what's been keeping me busy. Hope your projects are going well this summer!
