Day 21 of 31 Days: Tile #3: Lila

Happy Sunday! It's Day 21 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today I am bringing you Tile # 3 from my Dilly Beans Sugar Skull set. Today's Tile features Lila. You've seen me use her once before this month on a black and white card.

She looks so different now that I've used color on her instead of just black, white and gray, right? I used the same techniques to make this tile as I did the others. I really love using the tissue paper to print these images. I think they come out so nice.

Here's a closer shot of the top of the tile. I wanted you to see the colors I used in the flowers ans her eye. I used Copics and Sharpies to color her in. The Sharpies are working better than I had originally expected, though they of course don't blend the way watercolor markers or Copics do.

One more tile to go! I hope you like my set, and are perhaps even inspired to make some tiles yourself. Now it's time for you to hop along to the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

Wow, Lila is even better in color! She's fabulous! I'd say it in Spanish but I don't really know much spanish. I love that Sharpies come in a much wider range of colors now than they used to. I really love how you colored her!

Yes, I am so inspired to make some tiles. You said you used tissue paper. So Im guessing that somewhere you found printable tissue paper for computers? Great job!

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…
