Template Tuesday - Halloween Witch

Posted by Amelia Swhizzagers On 1:02 AM 0 comments

My Halloween templates all seem to be on their way somewhere. This witch, maybe she's going to a party? I love it when I see cats on leashes. They never seem to really enjoy it.

Here's what the template will look like:

The Saint

I have always loved deer. Growing up in Las Vegas, I heard that Wayne Newton had a deer in his backyard (he also had penguins and raised beautiful Arabians). In my head, that made Wayne Newton the coolest person in the world. It still kind of does.

I have a fondness for all of the pieces I came up with for this show, but I really enjoy that she is growing birds in her garden.

Template Tuesday - Halloween Werewolf

Posted by Amelia Swhizzagers On 6:48 AM 0 comments

This werewolf is so excited for trick-or-treating. He brought his pet raven along with him.

I still haven't gotten around to making the template for the 3d spider, but I will! Hopefully before Halloween! So here's a papercut that's a little bit more on the easy side. The thin lines of the pumpkin handle and the leash might be a little tricky. Just remember to cut from left to right so that you can see where you're cutting (unless you're left-handed). Also, make sure you have a fresh blade if you're using a craft knife.

The Diviner

Posted by Amelia Swhizzagers On 10:18 PM 0 comments

Here's one of my pieces for the Festival last Saturday. This one I called, "The Diviner" but I don't know if that guy is really a diviner. I don't know if that guy is even really a guy. When I drew him, I was thinking of him as a guy but everyone I've shown it to thinks that it's a woman. I guess I just drew a pretty decent shim.

I have five that are similar to this. They are all pretty small - the green part measures 4.75" square. So teeny!

Anyway, thanks to all who came to the show. It was nice to meet those of you who I hadn't met before!

Template Tuesday - Halloween Spider Attack!

Posted by Amelia Swhizzagers On 1:00 AM 0 comments

Don't you just hate getting attacked by a giant spider?

Okay, guys, I don't have time to make the template for this because I have an art show on Saturday, but I will post it shortly thereafter.

BUT...if you want to learn how to make this papercut, I will be doing a demo at this art show if you're in the general vicinity.


Website: http://www.utlfa.org/
Tickets:
$4/Adults Advanced, $5/Adults at the Door, $3/Students Advanced, $4/Students at the Door, $2/Seniors Advanced, $3/Seniors at the Door
Dates: Saturday, October 10,
Times: 5-11pm
Location: Salt Lake Masonic Temple
650 East South Temple
Salt Lake City, UT 84102

It's at this place, which, to tell you the truth, I'm pretty excited about.

I don't know how chaotic everything will be, but I'll try to do a demo around 7pm and 9pm. I'll just show you how I make it and then you can take the template home and try it for yourself. It needs to be done on something at least as thick as regular scrapbooking paper.
