Project Share: Halloween File Folder

Mixed Media Projects, Art SwapsJill AdamyComment

I’m slowly getting back into creative mode after losing my mom 2 weeks ago. It wasn’t a total shock, but I don’t think it’s something you’re ever fully prepared for. It’s hard to wrap my head around not seeing her anymore. But all that emotion is for another day, another post. Once when I’m ready to have a good cry. Not today.

Today is about sharing a project that I’ve worked on these last few days as I slowly play catch up on the art swaps that I haven’t prioritized for the last couple of weeks. This is a file folder, Halloween themed, that I’ve decorated with paint, ribbon, stamps and collage for the recipient. I’ve also added in some little treats within the folds of the file folder, such as little pockets and creative pieces like pumpkins, crows, cats and a little “nut or candy cup” that the recipient can put together and place on their desk. A perfect little spot for candy corns!

I have such a great time creating items for Halloween! It’s definitely one of my favorite little holidays! So bright and colorful and full of whimsy. This project has inspired me to make more Halloween themed pieces for sure!

Hope you’ve got some Halloween fun on your art table! Tis the season for all things fall and Halloween!
