Day 7 of 31 Days of Halloween: Miss Star Witch

Hello again! It's time for a new challenge with A Day for Daises, and thankfully, it ties right into the 31 Days of Halloween. Now, along with this post, I also am participating in a fabulous hop between Imagine and Echo Park. To check out that post, please click HERE.

The theme for ADfD this month is "Anything Halloweeny Goes!" Sweet. So I worked with Miss Star Witch to create a 6x6 mini page with a vintage feel.

I know, I know...it's not creepy. I'm sorry.....but I do like the end result. I used 3 colors of Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush to color the witch and her kitty in. Then I added some Distress Inks and Memento inks on top to age the image further.

Now, remember how I mentioned that Imagine/Echo Park Blog Hop? Well, I wanted to give a nod to that hop, so you'll notice that the die cut that I used on this card, is the same on that I used on the card for the hop. Plus, I dabbed 2 GORGEOUS Delicata  (Shimmery Silver and Celestial Copper) inks on top of it, so it looks like a metal embellishment now.

My sentiment is from Stampendous, and is called Witching You. I stamped it with Black Shimmer Delicata ink and used the small "V" Fitted Frame (Set A), also from Stampendous. More ink. I added faux stitching with Tuxedo Black irRESISTables Pico Embellish around the edge. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar, as well as the Echo Park blog hop with Imagine. Thanks for stopping by,, have a bewitching 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…
