inspired by this ~ here's the second half of my pumpkin project tale. :)
once all the pumpkins were at home i started with my "before" photo shoot.
(p.s. forgive me for the lighting of my photos... i am having issues these days :( hopefully i will get into the swing of things soon!)
the little white one was my favorite since it was the most "perfect" (the first purchased)
the big mini one looks like a giant orange to me (second purchased)
and finally our big guy from shawn's pumpkin patch! :)
oh izzy stopped by to say hi ♥ anytime i take pictures and they aren't of her... she manages to walk into the middle of at least one shot before i finish. do your fur balls do that?
next step ~ white wash! in order for me to get all the pumpkins the same white, i spray painted them with outdoor spray paint. sadly i forgot to take a picture before i started the artwork so just imagine... they are now all bright white! *insert image here* ohhh don't they look nice? :)
since i can't wow you with an image of the white "before" ~ here is the fancy "after" with the artwork
it was pretty easy to do...
once the spray paint dried, using a mix of black sharpies and a fine point pen, i did the spider & his web. i should have ONLY used the fine point pen on this one, but i didn't know i had one until after i basically finished. in the end, the spider web is my least favorite mainly because it has my black finger prints everywhere!
the bat was my second project, and i totally screwed him up too. haha i drew him in pencil first, and then started tracing over that. one side came out great, but then when i got to the other side somehow i couldn't tell the difference from my erased lines and my real lines... and it was way uneven. i ended up spray painting over one half of him and starting over. ridiculous and funny... actually now that i think about it, this one was way more messy than the spider web.
for the big guy, i asked the mister to do a pumpkin face because i wanted to make sure he was a part of the project too. (we are a family after all). not surprisingly, he did amazing! in the end, it's actually my favorite one of the three. thanks babe :)
which one is your favorite?
personally i like surprise pumpkin that showed up ♥
isn't she the cutest pumpkin of them all :)
well what do you think of my black & white creations?
