Alison, the Blog Hop Captain, set out this challenge for September:
"Many of our major holidays are just around the corner. I think we all know what my favorite holiday is...but what's yours? My challenge to you is to make a Bombshell project for your favorite holiday. Bonus points if you make a decoration!!! Use any holiday you want and create something that's going to make us want to celebrate!!! "
Well, I think we can all guess what MY favorite holiday is...and if you can't, well, you just haven't been paying attention or this is your first visit to my little corner of blog land :) I just had to make a project for Halloween!!!!! And seeing that 31 Days of Halloween starts in just three days, I was super excited to make a warm-up project to share. BTW, if you don't know what 31 Days is, please click the link for info or come back and visit on the 1st, it's going to be a fabulously creepy-fun month long blog hop with tons of inspiration and amazing prizes!! You can see the list of Wicked Bloggers in my sidebar, and it is HUGE! Come check out how you can win some awesome prizes from some really great sponsors! (hint: Bombshell is one of them!)
Now that that's out of my system, I'll move back to the hop at hand...I'm just so excited.
For my holiday project I had to work with one of the new costumes from the Halloween Dress Up Set for Bombshell Angel. Once again, I did some digital work, but this time I combined digital with hands-on. I created an artwork piece that will later be added into another project during 31 Days (shhhh, kinda a sneak peek). Not quite a decoration yet, but it will be. Here she is, my wicked little witch, complete with black cat familiar.
Bombshell Angel is colored digitally, and the background image and flowers are from Itkupilli. I used black canvas cardstock, and some white crackle paint on two different layers. Then I added ink shading all around and finally some fun little letters for my sentiment, ribbon, and hardware. After taking the pic, I went in digitally and added even more shading and texture and my spider webs. Other than the pic being a little blurry, I think it came out wonderful! It was fun to color the angel up in some bright Halloweenie colors, and I kinda made her look like me with her red hair and all (yes, it's red again!)
So, what do you think? I hope it gives you some inspiration, and gets you in the mood for Halloween! Now you get to hop on through to the other participant blogs and see which holiday inspired their creations. Don't forget to stop by the Bombshell Forum to get your fix and sign up for the blog hop next month. And if you're interested in joining in some fun conversation about our 31 Days of Halloween event, swing by the Smeared and Smudged Forum too. Have a great hop!
