Christmas in July!

Well, more like Halloween in May!

I've been working on a Halloween trade with Richelle of Rinni's Playground.  We are supposed to sculpt something for the other....my idea, but then things got crazy around here and I was having trouble fitting in some clay time...

I finally managed to make this little Creepsake Box for her :)
This is Midnight.


Made with Paperclay, a styrofoam ball skull and paper mache box.


His eyes are filled with moonbeams in a sea of blue.

Under his box is a quick verse that says,
"The witch flies high
black cat by her side...
Spreading magic into the starry sky."


...and inside...



...the Magic Sprinkler, herself with Midnight in tow.

I hope Rinni likes him :)

In keeping with the whole Christmas in July title, I'm offering a pre-vacation Sale in my humble shop.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,
Cameron

That is so cute! :) Rinni is going to love it for sure. And such a great touch to decorate the inside of the boy as well. Makes it even more special. :)

Caz said...

I love that trinket box :-) it looks just like my kitty Lupin :-D ooo where do you go camping??

Sartassa said...

really lovely. There's this thing about selfmade things that always kept me from diving into it as much as I usually wanted. It takes me quite a while to finish artwork, also seasonal one, and once I am done, the occasion has passed. I couldn't start making christmas cards in october, it just doesn't feel right to me.

Hugs and sparkles

Midnight is such a handsome fellow, and the sparkle sprinkling witch is totally magical. What a wonderful gift to pass on.

I'm going to your shop to peruse ;-)

I fall in love two fast *sigh* But who can resist who can resist the pull of BoHo Chic Fan Dangles? I have a top that is already making plans ;-)

Rinni's Playground said...

Cam, Misnight is awesome!! I'm super excited he'll be coming to live with me! As you know, I'm a tad bit behind in our trade but I promise you it will be worth the wait! *cackles madly* I hope you have a fantastic time in the wild!

Kristin said...

Seriously!? You amaze me! And I think I've told you before that I totally think of you and Halloween now, you are so clever and I still remember those jars full of ooze and such from last year ;)
This is gorgeous - I love it - now how bout a bunny for Easter?
Where you going? I did a two week camping trip with Dave and K last year - in a RV - thought I would kill him by the end of the trip! BUT now we want to get one of our own, lol.
HAVE SO MUCH FUN, we will miss you! xoxo
