Day 31 - 31 Days of Halloween

Well, my friends, it's HALLOWEEN! Happy Halloween to you! This also means that it's the last day of this year's 31 Days of Halloween celebration blog hop. I'm sure some of you are ready to go back to your normal lives - but for most of us - we're saddened to see this come to an end. We've learned so much from each other and from ourselves. Creating something ever day is a true challenge, but worth every minute of it!

So - for my 31st day of Halloween offering I decided to make another little character. He's not as cool as the first, IMO. But you can never be as cool as the original, I guess. I did things a little bit different so he wouldn't be exactly the same. I used a square wooden block instead of a round wooden bead for the head. And I didn't wrap his wire limbs - I left them exposed and silver. For his stamped contents I used a skull from Inkadinkadoo. I hope you like him and please visit everyone for our last day on this wonderful hop! I hope to see you all next year!!



Day 30 - 31 Days of Halloween

...Late is better than never, right? Here is my DAY 30 offering. I used Precious from the Goth Fairies. I colored her with distress inks...can you tell that I only have a few? LOL. I also used my distress inks on a tattered angels tile. All the other images, including the witch and the cat, are apart of the tile. Hope you like it!

I'd say happy hopping - but I'm sure most of you already have completed the hop today!! Thanks for coming by again and checking out my Day 30 project.  :)


Day 29 - 31 Days of Halloween

Welcome to day 29 - only two more days left! Can you believe it!!! It's gone by so fast!! It makes me sad, but I'm sure my family will be happy that it's coming to an end. LOL.

Today I made an ATC for you. I used a lot of distress ink, some MS colored ink pads, grunge board cut outs and a stamp from "As Death". I hope you like it! It's very colorful :)

Have fun hopping today!!


Day 28 - 31 Days of Halloween

Happy Friday Everyone - I'm sorry, but I have to make this post short and sweet!

Here is my offering today. The pumpkin stamp is from Inkadinkadoo and the Sentiment is from Smeared Ink's Lonely Boy and Puff set.

Happy Hopping!!


Day 27 - 31 Days of Halloween

Today - I've gone digital again! I used an awesome image designed by our very own design team member, Ike! This is an awesome image and I had lots of fun coloring it. I added some pumpkins as well to add some color and I wanted to enter this into HDH too  :) - The paper is Crafty Chaos  :)

Enjoy your hop today!

**I've entered this into the HDH112 
Movie Madness: Pumpkinhead Challenge - I've got three jack-o-lanterns :)


Day 26 - 31 Days of Halloween

Howdy folks! Welcome to DAY 26!! Today our wonderful sponsor, Kenny K, has joined up with the Smeared and Smudged DT to bring you some wonderful things! Kenny K generously gave our DT members an image to work with to showcase some of their designs....So today - along with our 31 day celebration, we salute Kenny K and the fun, sassy and sexy images they offer! I, personally, love working with Kenny K images!

This is Brianna Blaster - I colored her with distress inks - which is the first time i've ever tried that technique. I really loved the effect - the colors blended extremely well and I love that they are still bright where I wanted them to be. LOVE IT! I'll be using this technique more often now that I've tried it!

And don't forget to visit all our Wicked Bloggers today! The hop list is on my sidebar  :)

**I've entered this into the HDH112 
Movie Madness: Pumpkinhead Challenge - Hope this works for the challenge - it's a stretch, but I used "Pumpkin Head!"  :)


Day 25- 31 Days of Halloween

OK - Can I just say that I'm super excited about the project I'm showing you today. It's been in my head for a while....and now, it's real! I LOVE the way it turned out and think I'll make more and sell them! Let me know what you think!

I used one of those clear pales from Michael's and turned it into a little person! My other materials include acrylic paint, hanger wire, floral wire, buttons, a big wooded bead, straw, hot glue, UTEE, the heart stamp from Quoth the Raven (Smeared Ink), red card stock and gold glitter spray.

Don't forget the rest of our awesome bloggers! They've worked hard for you this month, so be sure to leave them some love!!


Day 24 - 31 Days of Halloween

Hello everyone! How are you all doing? We only have 7 MORE DAYS of 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN! I just can't believe it! I hope you are all enjoying what these wonderful Wicked Bloggers have brought to you this month....I know I have!

I'm so sorry I missed another day (day 23), but my life just got in the way of my creating this weekend. I almost didn't have anything for you today either, but I managed to get something done last minute. It's all digital and I hope you don't mind! I used the Zombie Classic - Mona Lisa digi image from Smeared Ink and did everything in photoshop. Enjoy!


Day 22 - 31 Days of Halloween

Hi folks. This post is going to be short and sweet because I have LOADS of things to do today, so please forgive me!

For my day 22 offering I created a simple ATC using a black widow stamp from Inkadinkadoo. Hope you all have a great day!


Day 21 - 31 Days of Halloween

Welcome to day 21! Today SMEARED INK is sponsoring with another awesome digi set giveaway! What is more suiting for 31 Days than the Calaveras Digi set!!?!

Find our hidden image and email us where you saw it to enter today's drawing. And also, don't forget about Rick St Dennis' digi giveaway!! His image is hiding somewhere out in blogland too!


Now, on to my Day 21 offering. Today, I pay tribute to our 31 Day EXTRAVAGANZA of AWESOMENESS! LOL. I did my best to follow the Smeared and Smudged Guest Designer color challenge using the following colors:

I used this month's freebie image, Masquerade, from the Smeared and Smudged forum and colored her with my new COPICS! This is the first time I've ever used COPIC markers and I have to say that I am extremely impressed! I love the brush-like feel of them!! So, the only colors I have so far are from the skin-tone set of six....so I colored my image with just those colors. Then I added a bit of glitter glue to give her hat, shirt, skirt, shoes and eyes a bit of a sparkle. I set her aside to dry and began work on my other elements. I used some distress inks and stamped a swirly flourish image onto my background papers. Then I decided to add some elements of Tim Holtz grunge board shapes. The wings and all the numbers and letters are from the grunge board. I distressed them with Peeled Paint distress pad and then topped them with glitter glue. Once I glued everything together i decided to add some green glittery buttons....and voila! Hope you like!

Now off you go - get to hopping and hunting those sponsor images!! The blog roll is still on my sidebar for your convenience!


Wicked Crochet, Anyone?

Anybody here crochet? I just made this quick clipart graphic for some close friends of mine and thought I'd share. If you like it, have at it  :)

Day 20 - 31 Days of Halloween

 **Update - Terra's internet has been down since yesterday afternoon so she has been unable to update her blog. She will get it up as soon as she can. In the meantime, I wanted to add the sponsor info here for you so you can continue hopping and go on your sponsor scanvenger hunt! 

Today our awesome sponsors are:
Our very own Black Dragon is sponsoring again with her fabulous handmade jewelry, and we have the Rick St Dennis digi set up for grabs again too! To enter, find the hidden images and email us to let us know where they are. Thanks!

Hello again! Welcome to Day 20! There's so little of the month left - it's kind of sad! OK, so I'm working on a project that is taking me a little more time than usual, so for today I went extremely simple. Hope you're not disappointed, but hopefully my more extravagant project will make up for it when I finally get it finished. So - today I give you spider web sun glasses. I used a spider web and spider stamp from Inkadinkadoo with white ink and stamped them onto the lens of these cool glasses. It was actually really hard for me to do because the stamp slid around so easily on the lens, it smeared easily. I had to redo it a few times before I got it to look this good. LOL - but, I have a wonderful model for them. This is my daughter, India...isn't she cute ;)

Now off you go - get to hopping!


Day 19 - 31 Days of Halloween

Howdy folks - WOW again!I can't beleive it's Day 19 and I've only missed one day! That's more than I was able to do last year! Woohoo! Yay me and yay all you other WICKED BLOGGERS! WE ROCK!!!

Here is a project that I started on Sunday that just didn't work out the way I wanted. I layered strips of paper onto my coregated board and then painted it with acrylics. Then I stained my pumpkin digis from "The Patch" with Tim Holtz Distress stains and mod podged them onto my board. Added the sentiment, straw, and, of course, gold glitter spray!!! WHAAAAT! LOL. Sorry. I get goofy when I don't know what else to say. Here you go... this is hanging on my front door now :)

Day 18 - 31 Days of Halloween

Alrighty! Today I bring you my first all digital created card. I was so beat last night that I went straight to bed. So this morning I created a digi card for you using Haziz from the "smell my feet" digi set at Smeared Ink. The digi papers are from the Gothic Bruise set at Susan's Crafty Chaos who is also our sponsor today! Hope you like it!

Now off you go! Get to hopping and hope you have a wonderful day!

Day 17 - 31 Days of Halloween

Today i bring you something a little bit different. I found these cool little DIY vinyl toys at Michaels when I was doing my Halloween shopping. This little guy has been waiting to be used for a couple of months. I spray painted him with silver paint and then applied a nice coat of crackle over him. I then dry brushed the green and black acrylic paint over the crackle. I really like the effect of the crackle. I stamped a skull and crossbones onto the toy's belly but you can't see it since I added a happy halloween sign (stamped) into his hands. The final touches were to add glitter paint and some brads for eyes. Hope you like him!

Now go check out all the other cool Day 17 projects!


Day 16 - 31 Days of Halloween

Howdy folks! Welcome to Day 16 of 31 Days of Halloween! Today I made a little wall hanger. I got this pre-cut at Michael's. I used the Gesso trick that I've used a couple of times previously and painted over with orange and maroon acrylic paints. Some of you asked what kind of Gesso I use and it's just regular ole Gesso. (Susan G. - can't wait to see you play with some)

While my paint was drying I colored my Stitchy Doll and cut him out. Then I colored my TREAT letters from the Build-A-Zombie Alphabet and cut them out. I applied all my images to my painted wood with Mod Podge and also gave it a good coat on top to make it somewhat shiny. Then I applied my buttons for the Stitchy Doll's eyes. I got the idea from someone else on this blog hop but at the moment can't remember who it was...I'll probably remember after I get some sleep and give some credit :) - I really think this turned out great!

Now, off you go!

**I'll be announcing the Scentsy FRIGHT NIGHT winner after 09:00PST so that everyone has the chance to play for it before it's officially over. Stay tuned!!


Day 15 - 31 Days of Halloween!

OMG - We're pretty much half way thru with October - can you believe it!?! It's been a helluva ride so far and we hope you all are enjoying it as much as we are....It may be slightly torturous, but it's so worth it! As far as my cold goes, at the moment I'm not sure if I'm getting better or not. LOL. I have lost my voice today and can't stop coughing, but I don't feel miserable, so hopefully all is well. Thanks again for the well wishes, I'm sure I'll be just fine in a couple of days. I know many of you have experienced some health problems too and hope you're on the mend!

OK - So I have a few things to go over with you today - I am sponsoring the day with my Scentsy business. If you're not familiar with Scentsy, here is a little bit of info:

Now - on to my Day 15 offering. I used the new Smeared Ink "Masquerade" digi (which you can get for free by playing in one of our challenges on the forum this month). I colored her with my prismacolor markers. Then - i added some clear microbeads to her hat, bra, skirt and eyes to give her a sparkle! While that was drying, I started on my tag. I used some distress stain for my base color and then some more distress ink from a pad on my edges and to screen an image in the background. Then I used the same distress ink to stamp some pumpkins in the background.  I added some green glittery ribbon and my OCTOBER 31 at the bottom. The last step was to apply my digi image and i had a little bit of a hick-up.... I was applying the glue dots to the back of her and when I was applying them to her head I RIPPED HER HEAD OFF! Oh my hell! LOL. Hopefully you can't notice it too bad. LOL. Other than that, I like the way this one turned out.

Enjoy your hopping!! Just a reminder, the hop list is located on my sidebar for your convenience!


Day 14 - 31 Days of Halloween

Good morning! So far, I'm feeling a little better and I'm pretty sure I don't have an ear infection - so I'm very thankful for that! I think it's just a cold and is hopefully on it's way out by now! Thank you all for your thoughts and well wishes.

My day 14 project is fairly simple. I think there is no room for my mojo because my boogers are taking up all the real estate. LOL. Oh well, what can you do? So, I used a chip-board tile from Tattered angels that was already embossed with some cool images. The fence and the birds were already apart of the tile. I used Stormy Night distress stain on over the entire image and then painted some black ink onto the birds and fence so they would stand out. I then stamped my images from Smeared Ink's Quoth the Raven set (yes, again!) and then added some glitter and ribbon. Voila!

Thanks for stopping by and have fun hop-hop-hopping!


Day 13 - 31 Days of Halloween

Sorry folks! My Day 13 post will be late. I went to bed early last night because I was feeling horrible and woke up late this morning....I was two hours late for work - OOOPS! But I did finally get some rest and I'm feeling a little better....I will try to have a new project up for you shortly....Thank you for all the well wishes!


Day 12 - 31 Days of Halloween

Well, the no sleep is catching up with me...I'm starting to get a little sick. i've had a sore throat all day today and feel like I might be getting an ear infection. I have never had one, that I can remember, so it might not be it - but my jaw has been hurting and my ears are popping like crazy. Who knows - it could all be allergies too. LOL. Sorry for the little bit of moaning there. But what is Halloween without some MOAAANING! ;)

On to my Day 12 offering. I used another digi from the Goth Fairies set (Smeared Ink). I really really like her. The other stamps are Inkadinkadoo. Enjoy!


Day 11 - 31 Days of Halloween

What a long day it was yesterday. I'm going to post my Day 11 project and hit the sac!! OK - I'm going to make this as quick as possible because I'm beat! I went to Hobby Lobby earlier today and found - yes, another - raw wood box to decorate. I have plenty already, but this one just called my name....I should have never gone down that isle!! Anyhoo, I mod-podged some really cool tissue paper onto the outside of the box and then sanded it to give it a distressed look. They I applied some Tim Holtz distress crackle paint ( antique lines), dried it with my heat gun, burned my hand by touching the metal tip, and then used my vintage photo and peeled paint distress pads to give it some dimension. While all that was settling, I colored my 4 (YES, FOUR) zombie headshots (smeared ink) with my prismacolor markers and cut them out. I mod-podged them to the inside of the box. The cool thing is that the box was already sectioned off into 4 little compartments.....so they fit perfectly! I added some crackle and distress ink to them as well and then used my heat gun again to get it all dried quickly (because I'm very impatient!). The final touch was to add some glitter paint to the outside of the box to give it just a little bit of sparkle. The best thing about this box is that after I use it has Halloween decor I can use it to hold my ATCs!!!!!! The four compartments inside the box are the perfect size for ATCs and I thought HOW AWESOME! It was just meant to be....me and this box are soul mates! And - that's how I know I'm tired. LOL. I'll stop rambling, give you some pics, and send you on your way...enjoy the hop today - and don't forget that the hop list is on my sidebar!!
