Oh what a beautiful Saturday here in Oregon! The air has a nice crisp feel/smell to it. So glad that you came to visit for a spell!
The month of October is very busy around our house. My daughters birthday is the first week. I asked her if she would like anything special for her birthday. (i set myself up for this every year) She has a small space in her office at work that she wanted a mini DOOZIE for Halloween. So of course, I headed to ScrappyDew to look for a file I thought she might enjoy. This is the one I picked. It's called Witch 2013 and here is the link http://www.scrappydew.com/store/halloween/halloween_theme.php Now I happen to love Halloween and all the decorations and customs. (it's possible that i enjoy it just as much as Christmas)
So as with any good DOOZIE, it had to have jewels and sparkle. So my lovelies, here is what I came up with.
I think this really turned out spooktacular! She really was tickled pink and thought that the small space she had would be perfect. It has just the right amount of glitter (and so does the studio and house). Of couse my DIL saw this and she wanted a big DOOZIE for her office door (she teaches AP @ the local comm.college and works as a veterinarian) I will show off what I created for her on next weeks post.
Do you have a few more minutes? I would love to share the birthday card I made for my daughter. I had bought some napkins at the dollar store a while back. They are Mardi Gras themed. (i loved the colors) I felt that the napkin was to thin so I backed the part I wanted to use on black card stock. Found some jewels and some feathers to complete the mask. I took a paper doily, colored it with ink and then used some shiny embossing powder on it. Grabbed my stamps and made the medallion for the Celebrate. (now this whole process took about 3 days) Have you found when you are working on a very special project, that you take extra time to complete it? This card overall took me a week! Very aspect had to be just right. So here is the final card....what do you think?
I really love the play of colors and the sparkle. Overall, very pretty card and the most important of all is that she loved it. Mid-week, I will have a post about an altered art project that I created. It was a mess but I took plenty of pictures to show you what I did.
Wow! I sure enjoyed visiting with you. We have to get together more often, I have a bunch of new posts to get done (8+ Samhain cards done and 8 more to go).
So for now, bright blessings!!!!! Jana
