Halloween Themed Illustrations Painted on Wood Slice by Alexandra

Italy based artist and illustrator Alexandra paints magical paintings on recycled wood slices. I have been following her work for a while and featured her work on the blog earlier. She is currently working on halloween themed pieces featuring witch owl, crow, pumpkin, moon and autumn leaves. Her work inspired by nature is painted in intricate designs and vibrant colors.

Alexandra feels her work gives her chance to spend more time in the nature. She goes on walks and collects the wood pieces from fallen branches and dead trees. You can find her ornaments, jewelry and art print in her online store Magic Wood Creations.

Create Your Own Animal Crossing Characters With Kits by Fawn & Floss

When the pandemic started we all turned to things that could bring us comfort during the hard times with very little or no human interaction. Some of us started to cook more and others found sanity getting lost for a few hours binge watching Netflix. I know of a lot of people who started to play a video game called Animal Crossing: New Horizons. I haven't tried my hand at it, maybe because I know I'll get hooked to it. My friends spend hours decorating their island and with the characters.

Quinn of Fawn & Floss has designed a series of characters from the game including Timmy and Tommy, Celeste, Isabelle, and other villagers. These characters are available as finished pieces while others comes as diy kit. You can find the entire collection of the characters in her online store.

Whimsical Halloween Figurines Made by Vintage by Crystal in Collaboration With Johanna Parker

This whimsical Halloween collection is one of my favorite so far because it's created by two of my all time favorite artists - Crystal Sloane of Vintage by Crystal and Johanna Parker. The graphics and faces are from Johanna Parker's collection and the hand-spun cotton figurines are made by Crystal in her signature style. This range offers both free standing figurines and ornaments that are ready to hang. 

Every figurine is handmade inspired by techniques used by the cottage artisans who made holiday ornaments in Victorian era Germany. To construct these characters the artist used both new and vintage materials, and embellished them with found objects such as ribbons, antique glass beads, vintage paper, and glitter. These one-of-a-kind characters are finished with hand-painted details. You can find these limited edition Halloween collection here.
