Today we have even more for you, but first we have some sponsor information. Look above this post right under the sponsor ads...you will see a spot that says "Sponsor Winner for Saturday, October 1". This will be where you check winner information each time there is a sponsor prize to be given out. If the prize has not been drawn yet, you will see a message that says "Winner Coming Soon". Everyone has until 9am Pacific time to enter the scavenger hunt, basically until the next day's posts go live, so we will have the drawing shortly after.
Be sure to check back if the winner has not been posted yet! Our winner of the Rick St Dennis digi set will be posted today, and as we mentioned yesterday, you have an opportunity to win that digi set each and every day! So be on the lookout for a hidden picture today. When you find it, email us and let us know where it is so your name can go into the random drawing.
Now I'd like to share with you my project for Day 2. If you were around last year, you got to see part of my Halloween decorations in my house. I tend to go more for the distressed, creepy, eerie feel with just a little gore for good measure. Alot of this stems from me having young kids in the house. Anyways, my project today is the perfect example of that creepy style.
It is an altered jewelry box drawer mirror thingy that I found at the thrift store. It started out white and ended up, well, creepy.
I stared out by distressing with layers of paint, using my heat gun as I went along to burn and bubble. Then I added my doilies with modge podge and added more layers of paint. After it all dried, I distressed with Distress Ink, Kona Crackle, and more paint. Although it looks gold in the picture, the colors on the project are actually white, grey-blue, and brown. While everything finished drying, I worked on my mirror.
The Skull Front image is from Smeared Ink's Anatomy 101 digi set. I printed it out on cellophane and then wrapped my mirror. Super easy, and it produces a stunning reflection effect!
The flowers are made using sewing pattern paper, and I colored them up with some distress inks to make them look like old, dried flowers that had been sitting there a long time. The leaves are actual dried herbs from my garden.
Here you can see the doilies that I added, along with the jewelry that will be on display. The pearls belonged to my Grandmother, who passed October 29; it's been twelve years this month. They are not attached to the project, but I thought they looked stunning! The rocks are Citrine.
Here is a closeup of the drawers and the doilies I added there as well.
I really enjoyed making this project. Although it was alot of work, it was actually very relaxing. I hope it gives you some inspiration!!
