Welcome to another new release and hop by Creations by AR! This month's new template is called Harvest Pumpkin Set and it's just adorable! My interpretation of this template had a lot to do with Halloween and Graphic 45's Steampunk Spells.
First of all, the pumpkin went together seamlessly (as always!). Keep in mind that I hand cut Adela's templates using the PDF format and love how confident I always am that everything will fit as planned.
My template projects always take me in interesting directions and this one is no exception. While in the middle of working on this project, my sister called and we were talking about MacKenzie Childs décor in a restaurant where she's hosting her 50th birthday party. I happen to love Mackenzie Childs and though I only have a few pieces 'cuz their stuff is way out of my price range, I do appreciate the eclectic, funky nature of their design styles.
Hence, the pumpkin became an ottoman/tuffet once I added the orange pom pom trim! Who knew?!? All it needed was to embellish the cover which began with the woman character who totally freaks me out with her odd expression. (I swear her eyes follow you!) The flower was layered in between with black tulle. Hand torn leaves were inserted under the flower along with curly tendrils.
To add a little more creepiness, I placed the Cheshire cat and Totally Wicked owl dimensionally behind the creepy woman.
Here's a view from the left showing some of the dimensional objects. 3d foam tape and 3d pop dots help with creating the depth.
Here's a view from the right which shows how I curled the Halloween sentiment that is affixed to the shoulder of the creepy woman.
