Day 20 of 31: Halloween Skirt

Hello! It's Day 20 of the 31 Days of Halloween, and today I have stepped away from the paper. Instead, I have a skirt to share! I am slowly learning how to sew, and I'm pretty happy with the way this skirt turned out. I fell in love with the vintage look of the print. Here's me wearing it yesterday. It was "Orange Day" in my class (I am an assistant teacher in a nursery school) so this skirt was perfect. As was the wig I borrowed from my sister.

Check out all of the fun little icons on that fabric! The skirt pattern was unique too. It wasn't supposed to have solid inserts, but I thought it would look cool with them. Now it has some nice contrast.

Here's me wearing the skirt last week with my daughter who is wearing a skirt I made for her previously. Her skirt has rockabilly ghosts and skeletons all over it. I love to sew...I just wish I had more time to do it. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, they are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

I made all of my families clothes for
many years (this was back in the dark
ages). I enjoyed it and loved
getting comments about "you made that?)
Now the machine is put away and seldom
comes out.
The skirts look great. The solid
inserts set off the pattern.
thanks for sharing.
Good luck with your stitching.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
