It is hard to believe that it is already the 12th day of Thirty Days of Halloween With Me, Laura (#30DaysOfHalloweenWithMe)! This sweet child is wearing an old t-shirt and tights that had a stain…up-cycled and recreated into this adorable candy corn outfit with Rit Dye in Tangerine and Lemon Yellow.
The model was so cute and had so much fun posing and playing. She wanted to hold a zinnia that matched the colors of the outfit which reminded me of a new book that I love, illustrated by my friend (Stacey Williams-Ng) so I gave her a copy as a modeling thank you gift. The book is titled Sitting On a Zinnia and it written by Ellie Alldredge-Bell.
Stacey is an extremely talented illustrator who lives in Milwaukee with her husband and two kids. She, like me, has been drawing and painting since she could hold a crayon. She does amazing chalk art masterpieces in addition to illustrating picture books.
When the pictures where printed, they were so fun that I decided to make a scrapbook page. I used my favorite three and put this together.
Making the candy corns from paper was pretty fun and I think they cut up pretty cute.
Happy making things. Happy creating clothing, playing with photography, reading great books and making memories (and friends)!
