stART - Five Little Pumpkins

A Story + Art = a great stART
This is a cute Halloween Pumpkin Poem. For this week's project we used pumpkin stickers and then added potato prints (in white) for the pumpkins' shadows.... (you kind of have to use your imagination...but that's ok)..... After the picture was dry, we glued a copy of the poem to the back...

I have just come over from Michelle's blog as this is my first week participating in the stART project.

How creative to include shadows through the use of potato prints in your project. Very sweet.
