Yes a little mystery from me, today, now getting closer to Halloween .

The base is a Chunkie  from That`s Crafty
where I just did not use the front. 

Apart from that, also the brick stencil , texture paste and spray colors --
, Lynne`s stamp of wildflower, and text  ,-plus the raven ,
are all their own products. The sweet Tim Holz girls are also bought there.

I used Lynne `s wildflower as background , together with old lace,  
combined with torn sacking , the sweetest mini pumpkins, and
some favorite nature finds , and it was finished .

I hope you like this little and not too scary Halloween creation.

Wishing you all a very lovely weekend , dear friends .

Hugs and love

What a fabulous mixed media piece Dorthe, a great idea to transform the chunkie into a shadow box leaving those edges exposed. It's full of intrigue and lots of little places to explore. I can imagine those sweet girls having so much adventure discovering it all.
A incredible expressive play with words and images. Thank you for sharing with us all.
Have a super weekend dear Big Hugs Tracey xx

Halloween doesn't always need to be scary … cuteness may be the way to go and you nailed it, Dorthe! I love everything about this piece.

What an original halloween project. I love the idea of these two little girls at the bottom of the garden harvesting their mysterious pumpkins. The colouring on their dresses is lovely. xox
