PFATT piece for August

Thinking outside the box...okay, sit on the box and think. Poor little stitched-eyed pumpkin didn't fully comprehend what the theme could have been, and in his simple mind this is what he came up with. This is the August PFATT work to go on eBay. He measures 6.75" x 5.75" x 5.75", is celluclay, paperclay, paper, fabric cording and dyed raffia on a hinged wood box painted with acrylics and sealed in a satin polymer finish. The pumpkin has brown stitched eyes and a toothed grin as he sits atop a border of pumpkin figures on his "Boo" box.













The box opens to display a printed paper lined lid of a halloween kitty, surrounded by black twisted cording and a paperclay bat on a tiny little black ball.






The lid goes from black on the top and sides variegated down to orange near the hinges.



I'm working the rest of the day on trying to get my eBay sales up and running so wish me luck. I will post when both this piece and Jacque are listed!!!
Happy Creating!!

Love your box, Laurie.
I have been doing painted hinged boxes for a few years now and I never get tired of the look. I have over 100 wooden hinged boxes to paint for classes I am teaching in November!

Your box is wonderful! Love the look!
Hope you have a great month at Spooky Time!

Hugs, Nancy

100 boxes!!! Wow, if I get 5 or 6 done a season I think I've really done something. I have another boo box started out of paperclay and with a carnival mask and wire arms so I hope it is something I can make work.

I need a shock-tail Chris!!!!
