Doctor Who Party Week: Invitations and Decorations

 For the perfect Doctor Who Themed Birthday Party...

 You'll need some great invitations!
Here's the one we made...
You could even use a homemade stamp!


You'll also need some great decorations!

Dalek
No party is complete without one!

 I took a fabulously sketched Dalek image from Okum Arts.
I opened it up in photoshop and cropped it into printer page
sized pieces and printed all 9 of them out.
(The process was just like the Cassandra I did for the games)
Then I colored them with gold and silver colored pencils.
And cut them out carefully and then laminated them in my desktop laminator!

 After they were laminated,
I pieced them back together and used clear packing tape to secure them in place!


The only problem was how crappy the stun gun lined up...
and how I colored it wrong!

 So I printed off another piece...did the same
 process and just taped it right on!
 Much better!
I mounted it on some foam core board from the dollar store
to keep it standing upright.
But you could tape it up on the wall or a door too!

 Here it is, piece by piece...just right click to save off
and print on regular paper!  Personal use only!
 

Vincent Van Gogh Inspired Art:
The Pandorica Opens
 These paintings were a blast!...and I was jealous I didn't get to do one myself.
So, we homeschool, right?
We did a whole day studying Vincent Van Gogh.
We read all about his life and tragic end.  We studied his paintings.
We watched "Vincent and Amy" and "The Pandorica Opens"
And then we set to work.
We found these 2 canvases at the thrift store for $1 each...steep, I know!
 I used spray paint to get the blue going...

 Then the kids set to work, daubing paint swirls and a shattered Tardis!

 They loved it!  And it was challenging...
It was hard for them to just daub on the paint and not
 try too hard to make it look perfect.
Abstractness is a talent for sure!


 And the final pieces:



Here's the reference from "The Pandorica Opens"
I think they did pretty good! 

We walked through the Untempered Schism to enter the party!


We got the Tardis/Dalek silicone mold
and made plaster figures for decor

 Once they dried, I just spray painted them!
I am sure they will make a comeback when I get ready for the
Doctor Who Themed Christmas Tree!


We hung up quotes and other original artwork done by my kids!
My daughter even did a My Little Pony Doctor's Companions picture:
I think she did great capturing Rose, Amy, River, Martha, Clara, and Donna!
I love the details like the snowmen, the beetle on
 Donna's back and the "my little Doctor"!
Budding little artist!

Most of the decor was the games too!
Check them out if you missed them!



Linking up to THESE parties this week!

I love these ideas!!! And the mini dalek and tardis are extremely cute. I want some!!! What did you use to make them? Did you use clay? Did they take long to dry?
