It's invitation time!
It's out 10th Annual Halloween Party! And my Halloween Invitations have for the most part gone out! This year I went with a Toe Tag and I LOVE this invitation. You'll find I have blurred out my private information.
Lets start with these creepy vinyl fingers I bought at my $1 Store, $2 for 10 fingers. Gross and everyone said so!
I found these tags on Pinterest and thought they were PERFECT! Especially one I added my own spookiness to them.
I tried to find TH Splatter stencil so I could do these blood splatters with no luck. So I smashed my Barn Door stain down hard. The harder you smash the more it splatters. Oh and cover up, I made a mess of my new shirt.
I stamped the skull and date using one of those S.M.A.S.H stampy things...very technical term.
Stamping with a lighter colour really adds a spooky layer.
On the back I continued the distress with ink and a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
All lined up with those creepy bloody fingers.
I think these are my favourite Halloween Invitations yet. They took no time to make and are really gross!
I have my Halloween Costume picked out! What are you dressing up as?
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…
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!
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…
