This is my first year attempting "shading". That's where you shave away the pumpkin useing wood carving tools (which I already had, yeah!). I watched this video to help learn how.

Last year, I posted my "Hitchickers Guide to the Galaxy" pumpkin, so this year I chose "Twilight" (maybe I'll do a different book theme every year?!) I copied the pattern from the cover of Twilight useing wax paper. I think it turned out really well for my first try. Unfortunately, I'm not much of a photographer, and the pictures really don't do it justice. It looks soooo much better in real life. I tried to carve "Twilight" backwards on the back, so the word "Twilight" would shine on the wall, but It doesn't show up right. I think I carved it too low or too high. I'm not sure. Only the top half of the word will show up. anyway, enough babble, here's my Twilight pumpkin" I hope yall like it even though my pics aren't that good.
