Halloween Madness Begins!! Pumpkin Scars Decorating Tip!

I am a Halloween freak and since I have most certainly lost readership on my blog due to an overwhelming amount of 'to-do-by-yesterday-stress' and 'good-ol'-blog-neglect', I'm hoping to reinvigorate some new blog loyalty via one of the most creative, expressive and mystique filled days - All Hallow's Eve!

Wickedest Witch by marisol diaz

I illustrate a new halloween card every year (and soon those illustrations will be available for sale at my etsy store!) Along with making wearable art sculptural costumes, I also host an annual Murder Mystery Party and this year is our FIFTH one!

So Halloween Decorating tip number one: If you have a garden- grow pumpkins! If you can grow pumpkins scratch family member names in your pumpkin like this:The newest member of my family, Chica! The Pumpkin Must Still Be on The Vine

After allowing the pumpkin some time to heal while still on the vine, the results should look like this as the scratch marks scar:

Awesome Scarification!
