A “Scary” Night

Kathy, here today to share with you a project I did this past week using some new dies I bought while out on “errands” with my daughter.  I am loving her being in college because with the schedule she has set for herself for classes, work, study, friends, etc. has allowed us to have two (2) days each week where we can run “errands” and just “hang” with each other.  It has been so much fun especially this past Thursday . . . we went to The Theatrical Shop in Valley Junction to look for parts for her Halloween costume she is making and, afterwards, we just walked around, going to different shops.  (For those who aren’t from around my area, Valley Junction is a historical business neighborhood in West Des Moines that has a lot of specialty shops.)  Like I said . . . FUN!!!

Anyway, I used my new dies with some of my favorite papers from PaperTemptress to make this week’s project . . . I used one of the dies for embossing on my background.  It is called “Scary Background” and it is Halloweeny/Scary words in a subway art style.  Here’s how it turned out:

Papers from PaperTemptress:

Onyx Mica/Metallic paper  (bats & backing)

 Other Supplies:

“Eerie Bats” dies for La-La Land Crafts

“Grand Willow Tree” die (#98695) from Memory Box

“Haunted Webs” die (#99007) from Memory Box

“Scary Background” die (#1078) by Poppy Stamps

Batty paper from American Crafts

paper ribbon from Reminisce (for sentiment)

enamel dots from “Frightful” collection by MME

“Farmer Jeans” chalk fluid edger by Inglvild Bolme for Prima

“Knotted Wood” chalk fluid edger by Inglvild Bolme for Prima

 Here’s some closeups:

 As you can see in some of the closeups, I didn’t adhere the branches of my tree . . . the reason I did do this is because I wanted more definition for my tree.  I did the same thing with the webs.  Originally, I planned this to be a card . . . but after posting it to HIMCR, I have decided to add two (2) more layers (kraft corrugated paper from PaperTemptres or a torn box panel with ink & gesso on it & another layer of Onyx Mica/Metallic paper) to make it into a wallhanging.  The gesso has dried on both the corrugated paper and torn box panel but I still need “something” on it before I adhere my final layers together.  I will try to do so in the next few days unless I change my mind again. ..but you know how it goes, right? lol   I will try to post a new picture sometime this week, if I finally figure out what it “needs”. lol  🙂
Till the next time I’m up in the night.
