Hey everyone, and Happy Thursday!
Before we get into the post today, I just want to remind anyone who is in the United States and eligible to vote, to go vote! November 3rd is right around the corner, and even though it’s too late to mail in your ballot, there are still plenty of places to drop off your ballot.
To find a drop off location visit: https://www.vote.org/dropbox-locator/
Also, if you haven’t registered to vote, you can still register to vote in certain states on election day. To find out the specific voting deadlines for your state and where you can register to vote on election day, visit: https://www.vote.org/voter-registration-deadlines/
Now for today, I’m doing another Creative Dumping Ground post, as I’ve been in the mood to take pictures of my Halloween decorations 🤷♂️
On a completely unrelated note, I also thought this article from CBR had an interesting take on how Halloweentown tackles topics such as prejudice for a child audience. This is one of my favorite Halloween Disney Channel movies from when I was a kid, although I loved the entire franchise (except the fourth movie… which I just pretend doesn’t exist).
All these decorations I bought at either Michael’s (they were doing a 40% off sale on their Halloween décor, so unfortunately, most of it is probably sold out at this point) or Target. So, let’s look at some cool (at least, I think they’re cool… hence why I bought them) Halloween decorations!
This first picture…even though it is very pixelated, I almost love how it makes them look like it was drawn or painted, because I can’t do either of those things very well 😂 I also love how much the orange witch legs contrast against all the green in the photo.
These bookish photos I took for completely different reasons. The one on the left was to show off a new decoration I got this year (unfortunately, the Ferris Wheel doesn’t actually spin), while the one on the right was a photo I was going to post to Instagram, but ended up changing my mind.
I got this wreath from Michael’s, although I wanted to get a different one, but it was sold out. I thought this was was pretty cute though, and I love the colors. With the photo itself, I was playing around with a cropping tool that changes the perspective of the photo. The original photo I took straight on, but after using the special cropping tool, it looks like I took it from below the wreath. I thought it was a pretty cool tool to play around with 👌
The same cropping tool that I mentioned in the previous paragraph, I also used on the photo on the left. The photo on the right I just took from that perspective. I think I would change a couple of things with both photos though. For the one on the left, I would tone down the vignette filter I placed on it, because it makes it hard to see the orange origami crane. The photo on the right, I like having the candle holder in the background, but I probably should have taken the Disney pop figures out of the holders 😂
Anyways, both of these decorations are from Target, but the cranes I made myself 👍 Granted, I did get the origami paper I used from Target as well!
So that’s all I have for now; I hope you enjoyed today’s post! Thanks for stopping on by, and I will see you tomorrow with a new post!
