Scarecrow Pumpkinhead Boogies in the field and More Blue Wildflower ACEO/ATCs ~
Sometimes I think I have a weird imagination to paint something that looks like a scarecrow with a pumpkin for a head dancing around in a field! Maybe it's because Halloween is almost here, a fun time of year!
I've been picking those little blue petals out of the flowers in the fence again and I've made a total of 6 of these so far. I researched, and finally found the plant I've been picking on. They are called Asiatic dayflowers and each of the little blue blooms only last for one day. I'm hoping the petals will last a whole lot longer than that in my aceos, since I have at least 3 thick layers of gloss medium over each of the cards I made. Numbers 1,2, and 3 are gone but 4, 5, and 6 are available and listed in my ebay (link in the upper right of my blog). I am going to try and make some more to list in my etsy store this week! I'm thinking of trying out some different pastel colors for the backgrounds. These have been so fun to make and I may try to make some as Christmas gifts this year.

Hi Chewy, thanks so much, those scarecrows are still boogying hehe!
Thanks suki, there probably was, I know I've seen that somewhere before (somewhere in my imagination and memory)
Haa Babs, that cat is so funny... I was trying to sit on the bed in the spare room putting something in an envelope and the next thng I knew, she was squeeqing in that box. Of course I had to play with her through the box for a while (and get pics), she's a kitten at heart! Thanks and I hope your little flower card arrived. I got Lynn's and it's so gorgeous!!
