I love black and white and decided to get to work creating a variety of pumpkins in my favorite color scheme!

Instead of painting orange pumpkins white I made it easy and used white pumpkins!

I wanted an elaborate lace inspired pumpkin. 1. I used my favorite supply- Tulip 3-D paint in black. 2. I started with a design 3. and repeated and embellished the design until the entire surface of the pumpkin was filled.

Then I painted the surface of a butternut squash. 1. I started by painting black stripes with acrylic paint. 2. Next, while the paint was still wet, I used a paper towel to pull paint away.

3. I used the paper towel, q-tips and the end of my paint brush to pull more paint away and scratch in the surface of the black paint. 4. Last, I filled the empty spaces with a few dots for embellishments.

I kept it really simple and created a pumpkin full of expressive text. I used a black jumbo Sharpie and journaled around the entire pumpkin.

The result- a variety of simple and unique pumpkins that look great in grouping!
