The Theme is Water

A blog was doing a water theme for art.  I combined some favorites- mason jars and flowers.

Boingo Pumpkin

We have all seen various types and takes on pumpkins this season.  There are fabric ones, plastic ones, real ones and paper ones.  But have you seen one on a spring?  - kinda like Tigger from Winnie the Pooh ready to pounce.

Well I have tons of these springs- yes the previous owners left me a rather ratty sofa and well- my dog chewed it up more than I'd care to share and right before I was going to have my brother-in-law haul it to the dump- my sister said, "cut out the springs and save those.  You might find something cool to do with them."  My sister is a junk nut.  She will pick anything up and try to see a way to repurpose it.  She is not too cool to dumpster dive- no sir. She was right- I ended up using them.

I did two in this fun orange pattern.  It is paper napkins decoupaged over a paper mache pumpkin.  Then I tied some of my hand-stained, hand stamped Halloween ribbon to the spring. 
Aren't you just bouncing to have this?
