Halloween Ephemera & Flashback Tutorial!

Mixed Media Pumpkins by Artistic Artifacts using Rusty Paper and Rusty Patina

Artistic Artifacts staffers Julie Middleton and Sharon McDonagh created a tutorial two years ago for their Rusty Mixed Media Pumpkins, pictured above, and with October 31st upon us, we wanted to share it again with you. They used Rusty Paper and a few other on-hand products to create these cuties.

Also in celebration of Halloween, we wanted to gift you with some fun vintage graphics!

Vintage Halloween Placecards box top from Judy Gula of Artistic Artifacts

When a box of Halloween place cards (the lid is pictured above) was pulled from Judy’s stash of vintage ephemera, we couldn’t let it go to a new owner without making scans of the artwork.

The box was complete with the 10 cards as promised — five of them were the above witch flying over a village, and the rest were singles (below).

We’ve invented a back story for this one: the cat hates both the ribbon bow and the human who put it on… and the jack o’ lantern is surprised at how much blood was drawn during the scuffle.

About Judy

I am a fiber person. I have been involved in fiber art since elementary school. After graduating college with majors in Fashion Design and Business Marketing, I have since learned to weave, sew, dye, stamp, quilt, bead. All those experiences and contacts have bought me to fiber art and mixed media through art quilts and my fiber jewelry. And I inherited the collector gene too - I enjoy hunting and gathering really cool stuff which the casual observer would think has outlived it's usefullness and use it in my art.
