Posing at the Carnival Ball WIP (work in progress)

This will be a quick post today. I have given myself some deadlines to make and I would like to go to bed tonight...HA!!! Below is a WIP that I started about 2 weeks ago and is still in the "I'm deciding" stage. He is part of the Boo Box series and is called "Posing" at the Carnival. This is all of Chris's fault for putting carnival in my brain recently and the fact the theme has such potential for development with Halloween figures!! I had an aw-ha moment last night as I just put my head on the pillow and giggled that I needed one of the new "shock-tails" CK brewed to give me spooky dreams to build on. If you haven't see the "Shock-Tail" yet you have to click on CK Designs on my favorites list and give his work a look!! He does some of the most wonderful linear ink and wash work out there. They are inspired.


Close up of "Posing" at the Carnival below. I'm thinking special makeup needs to be worn by the little pumpkin head and maybe some bling on the mask...feathers, baby pearls and jewels perhaps? We will see!!


Happy creating!
Laurie
