    New Halloween Art by Kristin Batsel! New Minis & Retro TVs on SALE!

    Filed under Halloween, Kristin Batsel, Man in the Moon Mini Book Kit, Miniatures, Retro TV Kit

    Hooray! New Halloween artwork! Design Team Member Kristin Batsel made a delightful The Halloween Special on BTV (that’s Brownie TV) using fairy collage sheets from the August Kit.

    And I picked out another Tiny TV project (also by Kristin) that’s highlighted below in the sale section (after a large group of new miniatures)!

    I’ve put the supplies for BOTH art projects in a new collection and created a discount code for 20% off those suppiles! PLUS I added a ton more bonus supplies to the sale group! More info on the sale is below (and remember that all of the supplies mentioned ‘tween here and there are included in the sale)!
     

    The Halloween Special on BTV by Kristin Batsel!

    Such a cute and clever “TV show”! Here’s a bit from Kristin’s blog post:

    Let’s see what’s playing on BTV (Brownie TV). I am a huge fan of Palmer Cox’s illustrations of Brownies, so I am totally in love with Alpha Stamps’ new collage sheets featuring them at Halloween. Those Brownies should be on TV! For this project, I used an Altoids Tin TV, and covered it with scrapbook papers. A couple of toothpicks make the perfect antennas.

    I used a thin strip of sturdy scrapbook paper to make the TV 3d. The Brownie images are attached to the background with foam tape, and a mossy ground and some pumpkins were added. To fit the pumpkins in, I cut them in half with a box cutter. If you apply slow gentle pressure, they divide fairly easily. They’re attached with white glue. I made one into a jack o’ lantern using a thin tipped Sharpie.

    Clever! (Both making the TV any depth instead of inserting a tin, AND cutting a pumpkin pod in half). Read more in Kristin’s blog post and/or see the supply list (and remember all those items are on sale — see the bottom of this post for more info AND another project by Kristin)!

    PLUS I chose the cute Tiny TV below (also by Kristin) using a smaller TV and I added those supplies to the sale collection, too. Here’s the original blog post and the supply list. Note: that scene with the cowboys can be swapped out for another program… that Kristin is clever!
