This idea has been formulating for a couple of months. Lots of different iterations, but I do like how the "idea" ultimately came together.
I asked Sandy Stark at Simply Crafty SVGs for the design of the egg shape***. She graciously accepted and created the SVG file for me. Sandy's design skills were spot on and the design worked perfectly.
The teeth were made using basic shapes from the eCal library (triangle and horizontal rectangle, Union)
All of the leaves were cut from heavy white crepe paper using a template created in the eCal3 software and cut with the eclips2 using a heart shape from the library and the knife to cut the shapes in half and the close path command.
Since the eclips doesn't cut crepe well, I invited a friend over to cut the crepe since my tendonitis is still in flare mode. Wires were glued to the crepe paper pieces before coloring using a technique from a Lia Griffeth you tube video. The leaves were colored using the eBrush and Bic Mark-it markers.
The tongue was a hand cut shape. A highly texture paper would work, or you could use some paper twist or heavy floral crepe paper and have it work.
The Feed Me sign was made using a font from Creative Fabrica - Halloween. (affiliate link)
An 18" dowel was attached at the back of the head and the wired leaves added using floral tape and hot glue. Secure in the pot (10") and add any finishing touches.
As you know, I love to add lights and music to a lot of my pieces, and this one was no exception. An InviteByVoice sound module with push button was added with a little bit of an instrumental version of "Feed Me" from Little Shop of Horrors recorded on the module. A string of fairy lights under the lip of the pot and through the center were added as well.
I hope you enjoyed this bit of whimsy and fun! Thanks for stopping by. Have some fun in your creative world this month!
