A Quickie for the Road


Happy Monday everyone! I am sharing my last Globecraft and Piccolo post. Yes, you read it correctly, this is my last post here. I LOVE Globecraft and Piccolo products and will continue to "melt" things for years to come! I have enjoyed sharing projects with you and I hope you have enjoyed my inspiration.  With that I leave you a quick project for the winter months--a snowman pendant!

On a chipboard bezel I applied Enamel Powder Adhesive to aid the White Enamel Powder in sticking to the pendant. I built up layers of EP bring it to a bubble sometimes to get the texture in the enamel--to mimic snow. I then adhered the nose and black crystal bling with glastique and added a grosgrain ribbon to the back for a scarf. a simple piece of twine acts as a neck "chain."

31 Days of Halloween & a VERY Spooky Halloween Steampunk Blog Hop


I hope you've enjoyed the hop along the way! Be sure to share your love with all the hoppers! I wanted to share with you the fun card I made using Vince's colored scene . I layered the non-background colored image on the image with a background to give dimension. I glittered the moon and added some spooky scene washi tape to make it look like he was flying over a town. A bit of ribbon and some hand colored cogs with metal beads finishes off my Spooky Steampunk Card! I hope you like it! Thank you for hopping with me today!

31 Days of Halloween | Day 23

During the month of October I am participating in a month-long blog hop with some amazing artists. Everyday you will find a new Halloween project on all of the blogs listed below. Each project must have stamping on it, be it digi or ink. There are prizes to win, be sure to check out all the rules HERE and information on the daily scavenger hunt is posted there!

If you're looking for my Delightful Challenges post, it is here.

Welcome to Day 23 of the 31 Days of Halloween hop with SmearedInk.com! Today I have a bit of news...since I so publicly shared my fears over the biopsy last week, I am pleased t share the news artfully and publicly as well.I got the call from the doctor's assistant today that my results came back and my nodule is benign--or BEE-nign! :)  Yes, I'm pleased beyond words...and relieved...and EXHAUSTED. Worrying is tiresome. So I go back in 6 months to monitor the lumpy lump and see how it goes. Thank you all for your concerns. I appreciate each and everyone of you!
SO...today I use my favorite BEE Afraid digital image pre-colored from Digital Delights by Louby Loo and create another fat book tile announcing my results. To create this tile I printed my bee with sentiment onto transparency with my way-cool color laser printer--have I told you how much I LOVE this printer?!?!? For the "dark night" I used some of the resist Kraft from Tim Holtz's collection and misted black Dylusians and Pewter Perfect Pearls Mist. I dried it completely and then sprayed white to "shadow" my clear image using a mask I had cut from a cardstock image of the same size. When I was happy with the whiteness of my "shadow" I dried the tile again and affixed my clear overlay  to the tile with brads! 

I hope you enjoyed my fat book tile! Please come back tomorrow!!
