Sit for a Spell

Welcome, please come "Sit and read for a Spell" and join this months Eileen Hull Art for Heart Challenge creating spookiness with Graphic 45 Rare Oddities.  I always struggle working with pattern paper but I'm always up for a challenge.  Lets face it G45 Rare Oddities paper is diffidently something I can work with.  
It's not secret...I LOVE HALLOWEEN!  Let's get detailed...


I started with Eileen Hulls Train Case
...and Rare Oddities


I cut up my paper and mat board. 


Adhere with glue.


Distress with a little sanding here and there.


Lookie...Wilted Violet!


Grunge it up some more and blend in some Black Soot.


Pretty...right!


With some of my scraps I made a BIG Book for some light reading...


Come... sit for a Spell.


Add a skeleton wearing a bow tie with an ant...


then add a Rare Oddities book to read.


I created and distressed a mini Spell book for some light reading.


I added a Boneyard Skull


A few creepy crawly ants


Then my metal skull... because you can never have too many skulls.


I love the Halloween Alpha Parts inked with Wilted Violet and Twisted Citron Distress Paint.


Snapped and sitting on a pumpkin this happy Skeleton is ready for some light reading.


Be sure to join the team and play along this month for some spooky creations using Grapic 45!

This is delightful, the case looks amazing and the skeleton (I love skeletons but they are so hard to get over here) is just hilarious reading the book. Clever, funny and fabulous Nicole!!

  5. This is amazing! I love the way you used the G45 papers! Where do you find a little skeleton like that? I've been looking for one for a project I'm creating and can't seem find one. I also liked the skull door knocker that you added. Very awesome project.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…
