Idea Search!

*Begin your creative thinking process by browsing through Google Search of previously created Pumpkin Book Characters.   What should you type in the search box?  Think of the keywords related to this project! 

*Notice the "out of the box" thinking in these displays.  My goal is for each of you to think of your own favorite book character.  Bring that character alive through your pumpkin!  Have fun with this!  Think "out of the box" when it comes to your design.


*Take a few "selfies" during the search stage to add to our final product. 


*Once you have made a decision regarding your book and character, you are ready to advance to the 2nd stage of this tutorial.
