Number of the Beast

Blog Land! Today, I give to you (almost by the skin of my teeth) a project made for the latest challenge (the Number of the Beast) of Haunted Design House. I know, I know...it's been ages and ages since I have played along. Not because I didn't want to, of course. But time just didn't allow me. Well, this time, I HAD to play. 666 was always a big number in my house...no really! My Dad had always found 666 to be a recurring number in his life. Weird, but true. His parking spot at work, it was on his license plate, and other unusual situations.  None of these things were sought out. In fact, when he had asked his job about the parking spot, they apologized and said they would change it. He insisted that they didn't. So I was excited to see this theme...though ironically, I paid no heed to the number factor of the challenge, only the "beast/devil" aspect of it.. 
 
I worked with As Death from Smeared Ink. I haven't use this set in a while, and I thought it was perfect. 

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers (and 1 Copic!). But did ya check out my trees???

The black die cut tree is a new die from Dreamweaver Stencils. My red trees are the original stencil version, also from Dreamweaver. You can find the Leafless Tree stencil HERE, and the Leafless Tree die HERE. I also sprayed some iRESISTables spray from Imagine Crafts for some texture and shine. 
***I am also entering this 6x6 mini page into this month's Smudgy Antic's Challenge of Anything Goes. 
Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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…
