So, we are to all make some ART to submit along with the article. But here's the kicker....it's for the October Issue!! LOL I don't even own any Halloween stamps any more. I sold so many of my stamps before we moved. And the deadline is quick so I really don't have time to order any either. Most of my current ARTwork is not stamped, or at least not the main focus. So, what's a girl to do?? Improvise of course. I have 3 projects in mind.......one is finished. I did put out a call to my old ART group in Illinois to mail me some stamped images, which they ever so sweetly did!! I plan to make an Iris Folded something and also a Puzzle Cube. For now, I made a Paperweight. They are very cool. You cut your picture or ART to fit and pop on the glass top.....voila.....instant ART paperweight. You can find them at http://www.dollartree.com/.
I used a haunted ATC background image and my fave gal Jenna from Paper Imagery Designs. http://www.paperimagerydesigns.com/. Her hat is actually a stamp I had that I used on black paper and then cut out. I added highlights to her hat with my always fave Clear Stardust Gel Pen by Sakura. http://www.sakuraofamerica.com/Pen-Glitter. The spider was embellished with a black glaze gel pen. The letters for "SPELL" were made using a Dymo labeler and then punched out with a paper punch. And I completed it with the addition of mini black rick-rack around the edges.
On the flip side I made a mini collage of stamped Halloween Images, signed it and then sealed it with a generous layer of Diamond Glaze, http://www.diamondglaze.com/ which btw, took 3 DAYS to dry!! LOL The edges are covered in baby black rick-rack and some antique silver glitter. Enjoy!!
