Days are getting colder and this is the reason we have to get warmer and more kind. It’s time to surprise friends and family with some little present to make the darker autumn days more enjoyable and at Tattered Angels blog we plan a month of gift ideas and autumn inspired projects . My first project was a present for my mom. She likes red and I thought to make a pumpkin in nude colors with a special accent on the shadowing to give to the red embelishments the right importance. I started to with making a ball of smashed paper and than I covered it with …. diapers. Yes, they are perfect to make a soft surface and the shaping of the pumpkin it’s easy. Than I covered everything with the bandage and primer and this step makes the pumpkin hard and you can’t really tell what is it made for. I sprayed the pumpkin with the Chalkboard Sandy Beach and then procedeed with the lighter colors (Chalk Chalkboard and Ivory Baseboard) to enhance the rounded pparts of the pumpkin. I also used the Glimmer glaze (Champagne, Icicle) to give to the pearls an anique look.
