Fun Things

Makeshift Month!

October rules for several reasons, the pretty scenery makes me wish I painted landscapes, and I can finally wear my favourite jumpers… but the main reason that I love October is because I find myself making more things than ever!

Here’s an update of some of my arts and crafts of the season… (Christmas ones to follow, shortly!)

My Halloween pumpkin 2014:

For the first time I added black ink on the outside of the pumpkin to allow a further shade to the final image. Unlit it wasn’t all that impressive, but I’m very happy with the lit result!
