My son is very creative & is always busy doing something crazy. Every year as part of spirit week at school they have one day called -- Character Day. Where they can get dressed up as a character from a movie, literature, pop culture. You get the idea. He told me he was going to be "Scarecrow"; of course, I thought he meant the sweet & lovable scrarecrow from Wizard of Oz.
Oh NO! He busied himself designing the mask & gloves -- he sewed them completely by himself. I had no idea who he was supposed to be when he walked downstairs in a jacket & tie. But then he showed me the pic from the movie. (top photo) I think he did a pretty good job.
So I wanted to do this lo justice. I think I had as much fun as Brendan.
Except for the blue -- everything here is scraps. I have no idea what the brand of pp is -- it's been in my stash for a while. The square is brown kraft paper -- which I love working with. I distressed it using Making Memories Edge Distress & then inked the edges with brown cat eyes chalk ink. I added some scraps of paper which I also distressed and a bit of burlap. I twisted several pieces of twine -- brown & blue and stapled it done on the ends.
I was really happy with the title (well to be honest, not at first). I used my deep cut blade to cut out the letters in cardboard. They didn't cut very throughly, but I like the ragged look. I inked them with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo & Black Soot. The font is Feeling Groovy - one of my favs.
I love the white Signo pen for journaling.
Everyone loved Brendan's costume & I so proud he did it all by himself. What a catch he's gonna be!
