Halloween Diorama

I reprinted the Celebration diorama, I’m in a totally Halloween mood. I used semi-gloss paper this time. I don’t think I’m going to use matte paper again, ever. It disagrees strongly with my palette. It took me three days to cut out all the figures because I had to take long breaks in between, cutting photo paper with a cutter is so painful for my fingers, I had to press like mad. The ideal would be a cutting machine. But since I hardly sell anything, why on Earth would I invest in such an expensive tool? For my own pleasure, I suppose. Oh yes, I like that. I will buy one. After the Rigid Heddle Weaving Loom (all capitalised – see how much I fancy it?) which is at the top of my wish list.

I don’t think I’m going to put this diorama in my Etsy store. Considering the time I spent on it, it’d be far too expensive. I’ll keep it. I’ll make some more when I’ll have a cutting machine.

I hope you’re having a very cosy time. If you’re not comfortable with a paintbrush, there are still many things you can do with a pair of scissors. Look at this wonderful source of inspiration:

I wish you great creative moment!
