Day 2 of 31 Days of Halloween!

Greetings! It's Day 2 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! How did you enjoy yesterday? I loved it. If you have no idea what I am writing about, please visit Terra's Blog for all the deets. I wish I had time to comment on everyone's blog every single day. I will try to visit and leave love with as many as I can per day. But on to today's project. As you may know, I recently became the newest member of the Dilly Beans Design Team. And it has been such a fun team to be on! I LOVE Megan's amazing images. And SO many of them are just perfect for the 31 Days of Halloween. You will be seeing quite a few things from this company this month...and they are one of our sponsors! Here's my project.

This is Teeghan ans her little spider friend. Normally, I shy away from spiders...ok...more like run away screaming...but this little guy is so cute!

I LOVED coloring this image. I started off with my watercolor markers and Copics, for Teeghan and her friend. Then I used actual watercolors for the background. This little image has awoken quite a monster inside me...I must have painted about 10 images in the past week now! Wait until you see them! After I did the watercoloring, I used Orange Stickles (which is on top of an orange Copic), so she is uber glittery. And fabulous.

For the card itself, more watercoloring...but scribbly! I added a small piece of corrugated cardboard that I inked, and my sentiment is (from Inkadinkado) was stamped on to a transparency and stapled. I wanted the sentiment to overlap the corrugated cardboard, but I knew it would never stamp right on it. Hence the transparency.

I hope you have enjoyed my project for today. I have to say, this is one of those that turned out better than I expected, and I love it. Now it's off to the rest of the Wicked Bloggers for you! Everyone (all 37 of us) ae listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

Regina said…'s a spider...a very cute spider!! Love how this piece just POPS out at you.

I have a confession. I am fascinated with spider webs. Don't want to actually deal with the spider but I love how the webs glimmer in the sunshine with the ones that seem to appear daily in our garden.

Happy Hauntings ^_^

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.

The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
