Actually, it's a mug shot of the miniature spun cotton top hat ghoul I have created for the EHAG Emporium, which opens its online doors on August 31 at 9 pm EST. My fellow Halloween artists and I will have lots of October 31 themed art available for purchase. So grab your favorite brew and head on over to the blog at the strike of 9 pm Wednesday this week to see all the new art!
This is a sneak peek close up of the tiny top hatted ghoul who came to life while I was working away on my collection of Halloween spun cotton creations for my upcoming blog sale, Sept. 18, and the Halloween art show Spirits in Sanford.
Every month, the Eclectic Halloween Artist Guild holds a blog sale at the EHAG Emporium. It's always the evening of the last day of the month, and July will be yet another event with lots of Halloween art to be had. My offering for July is "Halloween Revelry," a candy box with a spun cotton Halloween scene atop. The piece measures almost 9" tall and close to 6" wide, with the box itself measuring 5-1/2" wide and about 3" tall. Lots of storage for Halloween goodies!
Price: $125, plus $6 shipping Please email me to purchase.
The scene has lots of vintage flair and is made like all my spun cotton pieces, using techniques from Victorian times. All is affixed securely to the lid.

Using techniques from Victorian times, I have created a spun cotton black cat spooked by a ghostly apparition at a nearby headstone, which is paper mache. It is now available in my Etsy Shop. I have painted a ghost coming from the ground in addition to adding a skull and pumpkin face at the top and skeleton hands around the ghost.
A spun cotton gnarled tree almost reaches out to grab the cat. Two spun cotton pumpkins sit at the base of the headstone. One is a tiny jack o lantern. I have sprinkled the feel of fall at the base.
All sit on a wooden base and are firmly attached. Black dresden trims the edge. The piece is 9" tall and 8" wide. Check out all my offerings in Etsy, including my Halloween watercolor prints.
I am a mixed media artist living in the oldest, continuously occupied city in the nation, St. Augustine, Florida! I love to create with paper mache and paper, as well as paint watercolors. Halloween and Christmas are favorite holiday inspirations, as is nature. Remember, each day is a gift.
