Another day and 6 more techniques. Day 3 is all about distressing...differently. And I do love to distress pretty much everything. It hides all my crafty screw ups. And there's a lot! What can I say another day and another ton of techniques I love. This set of tags the techniques are Smudge Stamping, Brayering, Photo Tinting, Faux Cracked Glass, Glittering
Smudge stamping is awesome. And you get 2 tags with one technique...bonus. Brayering I kinda sucked at. I think my brayer is a little heavy. And the photo tinting I've done and still enjoy. I loved colouring up my Grands in their wedding day. Too bad I can't share with them:(
OK, Faux Cracked Glass Technique has to be in my top 5! This technique is beyond cool especially on the corked domes. There will be some glass cracking during my Christmas crafting this year!!! And you can never go wrong with glittering! I have almost all the distress glitters.
Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas? I have a few for you. These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks. BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows. These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat". Hangs over my spooky dining room. Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut. I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume. This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.
Happy Halloween! Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise! I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off. I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…
WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet. It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!! As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies. Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see. So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!! Arm twisted and mission accepted. I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey.
The set even comes with numbers;)
I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background. Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating. I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.
Be sure to dry fit before gluing! It took me 4 hours to die cut…
