My Black & White Pumpkins

Just a quick post to share my black and white pumpkins I made this weekend. I bought three plain black and white pumpkins on sale at Michael's. I couldn't wait to take them home to decorate - this is how they came out...

I used sharpie black and white pens and some acrylic paint. Finished it off with some bows and done. I'm happy with how they turned out. I think I'll buy some more to decorate.

This is how I bought them.

Happy Halloween!

Shaker Dolls Tags

I enjoy painting with my water colors and painting faces, the style I learned from Mindy Lacefield.
As I've posted in the past, I turn these faces into paper dolls. Well, I took it one step further recently and made the paper dolls into shaker tags.
Here's some photos of how I made the shaker doll tags. I use this fuse tool by We R Memory Keepers and a plastic sheet protector.
You heat up the tool and then you can roll the tip around the plastic to fuse the sheets together.
 Leave an opening on one side so you can add the filler.
 Trim the plastic around the doll.
These are some of the supplies I use to fill the tags with, different size sequence and beads.
I added an eyelet at the top so you can tie a string on.
These would make great tags on top of gifts.
I guess with all those faces I have cut out, I have lots of paper dolls and shaker tags to make. I'll have to take pictures once I have them all done.

Have a great week!
