Week 4’s challenge was to create a halloween costume from things around the house plus a few specific items like a mop head, coffee filters, and a loofa. I had canvas and paint around the house so I decided to make myself into a painting. But what subject matter? My friend Sarah mentioned a funny photo of me when I was little - I looked like a gnome. So, there you have it, I’ll be a gnome! I used the mop head for the beard and coffee filters for the flowers in the wheelbarrow, and I used the loofa to create the texture on the painting. I had my neighbor take my picture - I think she thinks I’m nuts. #makingit #makingitwannabe #gnomeweirdo
