31st October 2011 - hallowe'en...

Happy Hallowe'en.....the day of spoofs, spills, spooks and ghoulies....and things that go bump in the night!! lolxx

I suspect we'll get loads of trick or treaters around here as usual - I don't mind the little 'uns who are all dressed up and out for the fun of it, its the older ones who always seem unappreciative of what they're given and want more!

I've recently had a couple of printers trays in my DT pack for Tando creative and have used one to create:-


A spooky hallowe'en tray....the base was painted with acryllic paint and then a rough smearing of inka gold was added to the background, the tray was then assembled.  I find I get a better coverage and neater finish if I paint then assemble.  The edges were covered with T!m Holtz hobgoblin tissue tape and then distress inks smeared over the top and edged with inka gold.  The tando bat at the top was coloured using distress inks and pens used to hi-light, the smaller tando bat was treated the same way, but, given a coat of glossy accents.
The spider and spiders web were cut out on the cricut, bottles, chairs, handmade skulls kindly donated by Janet were given the distress ink finish, the cameo is made of clay and then painted...and those spiders...well you'd never guess where they came from!! lol

Have a good and safe hallowe'en
