Hi everyone and hope you've all had a fabulous start to your week.
It's hard to believe that we are in the final week of October...dark nights are drawing in, the clocks go back at the weekend...eek, Christmas is coming too quickly!! Once Halloween and Bonfire Night is over...it will be the final countdown and at the moment, I am by no means ready!! Can someone tell Santa I might need an extension... lol
Oh well, what's not done this year, will have to remain that way and I'm sure that Christmas will be fabulous with or without the chutney, or the Christmas cake, maturing for six weeks. hehe...
But back to today and of course, it's Halloween next week and I thought it would be nice to count down with some "spooktacular" projects ~ and here's the first, I hope you like it!!13th Hour collection by Kaisercraft, which is available from Merly Impressions. I then die cut some chipboard using a selection of Tim Holtz's Alterations dies, the skull and bats, the leaf and twig and of course the birdcage and wings. I then painted them with black Eco Green acrylic paint. The wings have a coat of PaperArtsy's Fresco Finish Metallic Acrylic Glaze over them to give a shimmery effect.
Before I go, just to let you know that the Making Cards Christmas Special is out very soon and it's all about a traditional Christmas and there's one or two of my projects in there too!! I even have one on the cover...that's it on the bottom right!! Yay...
Well, I'd better be going but I'll be around later to visit all your blogs and see what you've been up to.
Bye for now and have a lovely evening!
