Eileen Hull – Halloween Basket

hello everyone!!

today I am here to show you a quick and fun way to share treats with others.. whether it is for those trick or treaters that come to your door or to sit as a surprise on someones desk at work…

so I started out gathering all the supplies I figured I might need and die cut my basket four times.. twice from mat board and twice from paper

I then painted the edges of my matboard pieces with black paint and applied glue and the precut paper

here are the inside/outside pieces all papered!

then it was jut a matter of assembling. be sure to use a strong adhesive in case your basket gets overstuffed with goodies!

here is a quick look inside

and adding a few finishes touches .. recognize the bat!  i had die cut it from last weeks project 

i trimmed with ribbon around the outside of my basket along with ribbon on the handles and then it was time to add some treats!!

thanks for stopping by and i hope you have been creating!

until next time my friends,

Our lucky random winner will win a $30 gift certificate to the Rubber Dance Online Store!!!

for my project i chose to do another 6×6 tile using the same colour theme as last months project but with a splash of orange (egyptian gold actually)

so here is what i did. i stared out using a stencil and some light&fluffy modelling paste. i did the 6×6, leaving the centre of my square out

once that layer was dry i then lined the stencil up after placing a piece of chipboard in the centre of my square and then added some modelling paste to  my chipboard.

once everything was dry i started adding some sprays.

for the centre piece i added a splash of white spray and let it leak through the crevices to lighten up the centre of my piece

now here are my two pieces

and as you can see they one up perfectly and i love the two different colours

next it was time to work on my centrepiece… now for this piece remember we are doing  a product partnership with Rubber Dance Stamps an i am using the funny fungi.  i stamp it onto red cardstock with black archival ink and then quickly heat embossed it with clear powder.  i then filled all the dots with glossy accents and went back to the white and using a pin i picked at it in order to try to give it some texture

then it was time for the finishing touches…. the spray of gold and for the centre of my flower i chose to put in a tiger eye gemstone

here you have it my finished piece

thanks for stopping. don’t forget to upload your creation HERE (https://mixedmediamc NULL.blogspot NULL.ca/2017/10/mixed-media-monthly-challenge-41-color NULL.html) for your chance to win this months prize, a $30 gift certificate to the Rubber Dance online store!!!

Eileen Hull – candy canister

hello everyone!

welcome to the first of my monthly posts  for Eileen Hull (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/).   This month the design team are sharing with you projects under the theme of either Halloween, Christmas or Autumn! my project in real life today does not look like this anymore because really the only reason for me to make a Halloween project is to have an excuse to buy candy corn…. I’m just being honest here!

keeping it real folks!!

when deciding what kind of project I wanted to create I knew I just had to use the Ravens (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Cling-Rubber-Stamps-2017-RAVENS-CMS310-CMS310TH) stamp set somehow for my Halloween project. (this is one of the sets i a had won during the Facebook live with Tim Holtz!!!) i had an idea using alcohol ink and what better surface than on some YUPO (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Adirondack-WHITE-ALCOHOL-INK-YUPO-PAPER-TAC49715-TAC49715RI?currency=USD) paper.

so I started out by  cutting out a canister from mat board. I then applied some YUPO paper to some adhesive paper, die cut a canister and then layered on top of my mat board. I then covered my canister with a few darker shades of alcohol ink along with a bit of silver

then this is where the fun part started for me. I placed my canister flat into my stamp platform and using a raven stamp and some black archival ink I stamped and stamped until I got the result I wanted

I loved the ghostly effect but I thought I might try adding some brown archival ink to see if I could add just a bit of colour

now I loved how it turned out and the ‘glow’ around the outside but in the end decided that I wanted it back to the ghostly look

then I ended up getting lost in the process. i had  die cut three bats out of one side and created a window from the ticket mover and shaker out of the other side.

I then lined the whole thing with some clear packaging because I knew I wanted to fill it with candy

and so now here you have it.. my finished canister filled (or was filled) with some halloween treats!

thanks for stopping by and until next time,

diana

idea-ology halloween dome

hello everyone!!

so today i am here to share with you a project that i created just for me! you see today is Thanksgiving here in Canada and so since i cooked my turkey Saturday i had today off to just be…..

this little project seriously brings me a chuckle every single time i look at it… i love when a project is created and brings joy…even if it is a halloween project

i like to think the story behind these photos is the main skeleton outdrank all the others….but then he drank one too many potions and met his demise as well

i didn’t take step by step photos but as you will see it is such an easy project to put together using some Tim Holtz  idea-ology bits, the skulls (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Idea-ology-SKULLS-TH93606-TH93606),  decorate dome (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Idea-ology-DECORATIVE-DOMES-Findings-TH93265-TH93265RI/0), black dice (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Idea-ology-BLACK-ALPHA-DICE-Findings-TH93620-TH93620),  apothecary vials (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/RESERVE-Tim-Holtz-Idea-ology-APOTHECARY-VIALS-TH93231-TH93231?currency=USD) and the vignette box (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Idea-ology-VIGNETTE-BOXES-Structures-TH93279-TH93279RI)and a little skeleton from the dollar store

so much fun and a dome filled with and created with joy.

and i am going to do something else that i haven’t done in a long time, i am going to link this project up to a challenge. you seen Simon Says has a challenge this week of ‘not a card’ (http://www NULL.simonsaysstampblog NULL.com/mondaychallenge/?p=10477) and this is not a card!!

what have you been up to…. care to share!

until next time my friends,
