I am an idea thief,...and an image thief,...oh and such a tutorial thief. (but aren't we all really?) A magazine or catalog never escapes my house without being torn apart or cut to pieces so that I can harvest the fresh images or ideas. So here was my latest...I wish I could remember what catalog that I thieved this idea from so that I could give credit where credit is due, but none-the-less....I regret that I am not a better photographer, these pictures are all yellow-y. sigh...I digress...These fantastic little pumpkins that I fell in love with had to be mine. Desperate times call for desperate measures, so I purchased three foam core(?) pumpkins from Micheals. I sketched out my 'BOO' and once again when the hubby wasn't home I sneaked the exacto knife. (That man has got to find better hiding places.) I carved out the letters, and a few little stars. I hoped that this close up would show the depth of the carving. Once they were carved I painted in the indentations with black acrylic. Easy as pie, and just too cute.
