I'm not dressing as a zombie, but I figured it couldn't hurt to title my Halloween album "Zombies." I really couldn't come up with a good sentiment that wasn't too long, like "Halloween" or too silly, like "Boo!" (not to mention the lack of black sparkly chipboard exclamation points... which would make it more like a sentiment of disapproval rather than a ghosts cry...) Someone's bound to come as a zombie, right? If all else fails I'll find a way to print the photos from the Mud Run and make an entirely new album, which is OK with me!
Of course the lettering is a little wonky, but I like it that way.
I used studs from a studded belt and safety pins. It's so metal ;)
Next is my first attempted painting in a long time! I never paint because I usually never finish. It's hard to come up with a subject, draw it out, figure out the lighting... Basically the whole idea is intimidating. But then last weekend I was checking out Margaret Keane paintings and I had some inspiration. I decided to do a big-eyed girl painting. I still need practice!
The face needs to be more dimensional, but if I kept going I'd muddy up the paint too much (like I did under the neck) Practice makes perfect.
