It's pretty fun to dress in costume and hand out the goods to the goblins . . .
I've done the Cowgirl thang . . . and I've done the Gypsy thang (both TOO easy to come up with considering the state of my funky wardrobe!)
On the lookout for something different, I came across Alisa Burke's tutorial for painting a canvas apron in the Autumn 2009 Somerset Workshop magazine.
I already had a paint spattered apron in the studio . . . so why not?
It was easy to layer more paint on the old spattered rag!
Adding imperfect doodles was a kick (and good to quiet the "inner critic")!
But I LOVED doing graffiti inspired scribbles and journaling all over it!
(It's actually kind of weird how much I'm loving graffiti lately - considering how much I see of it here in L.A.!)
How easy was that .....just add jeans, a denim shirt, a few paint brushes in the pockets and ta da!
An artsy costume, for sure.
Maybe I'll use my painter's palette as a candy tray??
What else? A beret . . . a-la-Picasso?
