Little Red Riding Hoodlum & New Halloween Fodder

Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Jeanne Draachreider, Newsletters, Red Riding Hood Kit, Tim Holtz

Hee! Design Team Member Jeanne Draachreider’s Little Red Riding Hoodlum Artwork is a kick! I didn’t even have room to show the other panel from the Paper Mache House Accordion Shrine (but that wolf is a pretty sophisticated animal, who is not prepared for the hunter at his door).

And Jeanne provides a great tutorial for how to make a similar shrine, including that hand-crafted wolf skull on the coffin (see lower right of the photo at right).

I’ll let Jeanne explain her project:

Once upon a time there was a sweet little girl named Little Red Riding Hood… who had an evil twin! This is the story of Little Red Riding Hoodlum, a self-appointed Wolf Hunter. An evil wind always whirls about her causing her red cape (red from blood?) and ribbon ties to stream in the wind. Even as she walks through a happy forest her evil aura turns the trees black and gnarled. A black gargoyle watches over her every move, and a vulture has discovered following her a worthwhile endeavor! Meals on wheels! She skulks through the dark forest in her black mask (incognito) hunting down wolves. She pulls a little red wagon (sweetly childlike) with a coffin (how demented) along with her. There is a wolf skull on top and she’s marked off how many wolves have fallen prey to her relentless hunt already. She is well equipped for her task with bloody axe and knife… and as she tap tap, taps on the wolf’s door with her bloody knife… Oh wait… don’t worry! Fairy tales have happy endings, don’t you know? It’s really Halloween night and she’s playing a trick on Monsieur Wolf, and won’t he be amused. Yeah, that’s it… Halloween… sure.

Here’s the link to Jeanne’s Supply List. And Jeanne’s tutorial, too!
