{BOO} to you!

Hello my dear blogger friends, it´s been a while since my last post but I catched a huge bug this week and I´m way behind my posts. You´ll see them during the comming days ☺
I´m starting with this hanger I made to inspire you at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge, this week we have a wonderful sketch for you and we are asking also to have a Halloween theme in your creation. Hope you can join us in the fun!
 This a recycled and decorated old CD, the first picture is the front of the hanger and the second one is the back of it. As you can see I used the cut out of the frame in the front to decorate the back (patterned paper from my stash), I couldn´t throw it away! so I had to use it.
I started by coloring the image, the cute witch is from Michelle Perkett, another beautiful image! I colored it with colored pencils and blended them with gamsol. Then I cut a pice of a children construction paper to cover the front and back of the CD, I love this one because is splattered with glitter! I cut the frame with my cricut machine and glued it to the center as best as I could, I stitched large glass seed beads on the inside of the frame and drawn faux stitches with white gel pen on its outside. I placed the image by adding dots of strong instant glue on some beads to hold it in place. The cute bat and the corn candy are halloween stickers that I placed first on scraps of paper and cut carefully around, the bat is placed with foam tape as is one of the corn candy. You can see its 3D effect here
then I spelled BOO with foam stickers that I also faux stitched with white gel pen. Bellow it I hand wrote the sentiment. On the back I keep it simple: I faux stitched the cut out as I did on the front and added a sentiment, used another sticker (the cute ghost) and placed it with foam tape. To finish the hanger I glued directly on the CD a stripe of tissue pink paper ruffling it a bit while I was placing it before gluing the decorated cardstock. A piece of fishing line finishes it and there you have it ready to be hung!
Thank you for stopping by!

Hello my dear blogger fiends! we are having a HUGE party at The Outlawz this week!!! lots of prizes and plenty of fun and inspiration for everyone. You don´t want to miss it!!
Here I´m showing my inspirational creation for our group Twisted Thursday at The Outlawz, we want you to use: red, yellow and green on your creation. And these are what I made! two tiny cards that turned out better than I thought ☺
Can you find the differences??? there are not so many....and this is how I made them: I took scarps of my so loved hanging paper folder and cut them with my cricut, I layered them on a very (very) old paper from my stash that happened to have those gorgeous warm fall colors. Then I took a scrap of an embossed vellum paper and punch it with that pretty lace border punch (from MS) and I stamped "FRIENDS" with brown ink on another scrap of paper, glued them together on the front of the cards and added a few details to it: a couple of buttons (from my stash too), faux stitching with white gel pen and a tiny tag (also cut with my cricut). I saw the card too plain at this stage, so I took one of those (also beloved) expresso crushed cups and glittered them with chunk glitter, I ruffled a piece of fabric and placed it behing the cup. I wanted also to add an image, so I colored that cute pumpkin (from Tiddly Inks) with colored pencils and placed it with foam tape on the cup for dimension. My green was missing!!! well, not quite, but a tiny leaf was not enough green, so I glittered two pins ($ store ones) to finish the embellishments of the cards. Lots of tiny details that kept me entretained one afternoon. Hope you like them and play with us.
Thank you for stopping today!

Angel in a jar

I love to make little things for my daughter, and I love to recycle things, so I put the two of them together and I made this cute angel in a jar.

The idea is very simple: you start with an empty marmalade jar, then pick an image you like to put inside and embellish your jar as much as you want!
I used a Michelle Perkett image that I colored with colored pencils and added some details to it: pearl paint on the stars and moons on her dress, glitter on her wings and cuffs, and a few white feathers on her wings too. I glued the angel inside the jar and fill it with some iridescent plastic shredded paper as clouds.
Then I painted the lid with gesso, and after it was dry I glued with mod podge a sentiment made with single words cut out from a magazine. I finished the lid glittering all its border.
And to finish this craft I painted tiny dots of glow in the dark paint on the otside of the jar, my idea was for them to look like tiny stars during the night, they can not be seen very well on the picture...
This is my inpirational creation for you this week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday group, we have a very easy challenge for you: anything goes! hope you can join usin the fun
