How to Make a Little Witch to Welcome Halloween

Meet Ginger: my little Halloween Witch.

She was created entirely of farm produce - gourds and corn mostly. Well - there IS a bit of help from felt tip markers and hot glue - so MOSTLY all farm produce!

Actually, something quite similar could be done using fresh squash or pumpkins - but once cut, your squash will likely only last a couple days before it begins to mold. But that is true of pretty much anything made with fresh squash or pumpkins.

Gourd Jack-o-lanterns! AND Gourd Ghost Pinatas!

Sharing a couple new ideas I came up with for playing with gourds!

This one - my totally cool jack-o-lantern face - could also be drawn onto a fresh pumpkin! Just use sharpies and set aside a little quiet time to doodle to your heart's content.

Definitely will be decorating fresh pumpkins with doodles - they will last a LOT longer than they do when cut!

Even fresh gourds in weird shapes are good candidates! Think about it!

My friend TeriC introduced me to zentangles years ago and it was love at first sight - especially the colored ones!

You will better understand why if you go to her Zentangle Flickr site and see for yourself just what magic she weaves with her zentangles.

Playing with gourds and making Matryoshka (Russian Nesting Dolls) again! But this time the inspiration comes entirely from my friend and brilliant art teacher, Gail over at "That Artist Woman".
