Pumpkins | Picture This!

Halloween is getting closer which means it’s time for a themed challenge at Picture This! – we have the below mood board for you to take inspiration from.

I am not extremely big on celebrating Halloween, mainly due to the fact that there is no such holiday in my culture. For us, the 31st November is about visiting the graves of our loved ones and spending time with the family. As you can see, there are no black cats, witches or carved pumpkins with scary faces.

Having said all that, I wouldn’t let my personal traditions stop me from embracing other cultures and – most of all -making art!

Oh, I also decided to enter October Creative Embellishments challenge:

OK… here we go… layers of various chevrons, witch black and pumpkin orange colours and a doily resembling spiderweb… metal embellishments and curly chipboard twigs…

I hope you like it!
