More Vintage Halloween!

So yesterday I shared the package I received from the Vintage Halloween Swap on Craftster and today I'll share what I made for my partner!

I tried my hand at someone else's prim pattern! I've made lots of prims, but always drawn my own patterns. I got a great pattern from Cyndi Sue's Prims & Whims and set to work. The skelly moon turned out great, but the needle sculpting was daunting!

I really loved making him and can't wait for him to arrive at his new home! He looks so great on my red front door, I just might have to make myself one! Here is a close up of some of the sculpting.Skelly Moon Prim Close Up
For a 2nd item I drew up a vintage inspired picture and painted it with my water color crayons and water soluble graphites.
Happy Halloween

The photo doesn't really do it justice as I was running out of day light and it is framed under glass!

So much fun making Halloween stuff!

the sculpting may have been a pain in the ass, but the result is so worth it! I LOVE it! Your partner is sure to be thrilled.
Your mixed media piece is great too - I especially adore the face on the pumpkin!
