Spooky EEK

EEK is right!
 
While I have been working Holiday type goodies I do need a break.  (OK things need dry time and then I get bored!)  So, to pass my time I whipped up this little gem!  My husband pointed out he didn't want to see the FALL Project I made anymore and that he wanted a Halloween saying!
 
 
PFFT..ON IT!!!! 
 
We agreed on EEK since we wanted a little saying.
 
I picked up these small letters at Walmart, $1.47 each!  The skull is cut on Grunge Board, with my Movers and Shapers.  Then a little lime green glitter glue and topped off with Glossy Accents for shine!  Adhere with hot glue!

 
Same as above, only the "31" is from the Gothic Boo die and the glitter glue is BRIGHT PURPLE!

 
Yep, it's a pattern.  Only the spider is cut from Candlelight Fright and he's got some orange glitter glue!

 
All the paper is Authentique 6x6 paper I'm using up from last year.  I like this paper because the pattern is to scale for a smaller prokect.  Paint the sides black, glue the paper, trim, sand and ink the edges. 

 
Now we have a little Halloween for the mantle!
 
And while my skull, 31 and spider were drying, I went back to the Holiday stuff;)  WOW, another Halloween crafty thing...CHECK!!!!
 
Cool EH!

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…
