Trick Or Treat !

Hi everybody... hehehe ... I'm pushing it tonight ! If you saw my previous post you know I'm still recovering from my fractured foot. My play time has been somewhat limited as I can't get to all my play toys.
Anyway, I decided to play with things I had near by.  Due to my foot injury I missed my last Julie Girls Club date. So I decided to do my own Halloween fun project.

I love these Julie Nutting Stamps. I chose to use Mia  ( she's #7); the first six dolls did not have names. Mia was stamped on the Buff Paper and dressed in papers from My Mind's Eye  Wicked Mechant Malvado. It was so fun dressing her. I used the Julie Nutting Tag to mount her. I distressed the tag with black soot distressing Ink, used distress markers to color her shoes. I used a film strip and small cut outs from the paper pack to create a film strip background embellishment. Punched flowers from various punches from my stash, layered the flowers; curling and crumpling the edges to give varied textures, and then added bling to the centers. Wanted to add more texture so I added a piece of black gauze along the filmstrip and used a strip for ribbon on the tag. Used pop dots to pop up the banner and a couple of other Halloween themed pictures.  Happy Halloween !
Oh... I forgot to tell you I got brave and entered my tag at Ranger
s Halloween Crafting Contest http://rangerink.com/halloween-crafting-contest/. Go over and check out the entries, they are pretty amazing. Okay the warden ( my husband... he gives reports to the doctor) has come again ... I'd better go . Thanks for stopping by!

Hi everybody ! It's that time again. First an update on my foot ... I'm still under house arrest !
Okay... on to the tag. This month we are using Tim's new Distress Glitters,  Ornate Frame , Mini Owl and Crescent Moon and those cutsie  Mirrored Stars ! Oh what fun. You must go over to Tim's site
http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2013-october/ to see the details. This tag not unlike any other tag was full of techniques.  I love the marbling technique for the background of the tag, so fun; especially with those awesome new Distress Paint colors ; Seedless Preserves, Scattered Straw, Ripe Persimmons and Crushed Olive... a fun fall palette! And those Distress Glitters... so pretty. Now I gotta tell you, once you use them you're gonna want more colors. I was never a glitter girl but I like these ... gonna have to get used to using them ( I some how managed to brush quite a bit off while working on my tag). I love adding the script to the background just made me feel like a "true" artist !!
Well it's a short post, as I've had my foot down too long it's now throbbing and the warden has already been in here twice to see if I'm still up. Do go over and check out the other tags from the Tim community and I'll see you next month ... hopefully I'll be done with the cast and the boot !! Trick Or Treat !

Breast Cancer Awareness

Like many of you Breast Cancer has hit my family and friends . I hold a special place in my heart for all the women who have fought that fight. I honor you and celebrate you for EVERYDAY that you get up and go about your daily lives. I celebrate you for your awesome courage! May God continue to Bless each one of you. In honor of you I'm sharing (re-sharing) a project I made a couple of years ago for a contest to raise money for Cancer Awareness. I've gotta do something with it right ( I did win the contest too ! ) ? 
It was a Decorated Bra Contest. Being the Tim-A-Holic I am I choose to decorate using, my tattered florals die and grunge paper for the flowers,  several Idealogy embellishments, distressing inks and various stamps. You can see more details in my archives ( September 2011  "Wow I Can't Believe I Did This ).   I have also included  an ATC and tags  made to encourage you!  Be Blessed !
