Getting a Jump on Halloween

Friday, August 28th, 2009

My favorite holiday is Halloween, so much so my hubby and I got married the evening before. I can’t believe that was almost 5 years ago now :)  I really think I could make Halloween art all year round so I love to get a early start on items for my Etsy shop.

Here’s more of the soldered pendants I’ve been working on:

A couple more dictionary illustration, this time a black bird. On the back I added sheet music and the words “blackbird singing” for a Beatles inspiration

an adorable tiny bat illustration ( I LOVE this one so much!:))

The rest are vintage illustrations from a children’s story book.

 A witch riding her broom in front of the moon, I added the words “happy Halloween”

A big happy smiling Jack O Lantern

a cute black kitten with a big orange pumpkin, I added the word “boo”

Look it up in the Dictionary

Wow, where has August gone?? I’ve been so busy and I’ve really neglected my blog, sorry!

This week I was a soldering fool :) and made a ton of new pendants, I’ll be posting them here and for sale in my Etsy shop ( http://www.PisforPaper.etsy.com ) over the next week or so. I wanted to get a little early start on Halloween so alot of them are for my favorite holiday, Halloween!

I’ve been continuing to cut up the fabulous vintage dictionary I got awhile ago and here are a few pendants with some of the wonderful illustrations.

This is very Poe inspired, plus I have a thing for ravens and crows. The back includes the definition for “nevermore”

Really pretty owl illustration

and a funny one, a concertina with the words “I heart Polka” added :)
