DT project

Oh boy Oh boy!!! School is once again upon us and Halloween is fast approaching, before you know it we will be buried in snow... YUCK.  But right now is the time we make our Halloween projects, so that their done in time for decorating, right? Well me and my Design Team Sista, Rhonda are doing just that, getting a little jump start. First lets fill you in a bit. Y'all know i am a design team member for Angela Holt's Designs and we have a really cool sponsor, Etch-all, you will remember them from my last post, and we also all like to buy some bits and pieces from Mirams crafting supply. I will provide all the links at the bottom. And let me tell you, you can make some really cool stuff.  so you ready for my project? of course you are.
So here it is. My super spooky mirror. HaHa. Purple and green have become a staple among halloween and color combo's in general. Which happens to be Kelsie's bedroom colors. So this mirror can do a double service. If I wanted to use it for Halloween I could put some orange and black candles on it and lay it on a table or something, but since my kid is a weirdo i made it for her. Lol. The mirror was just a brown wood mirror that her gramma had found in the attic and gave to her, (score for a free supply), and I took a bit of the leftover green I had from painting her room and painted the wood. Then I cut out the skull on my cricut (this is off the indie art cart), on vinyl. Put the negative on my mirror and put the Etchall on the negative. waited, washed the Etchall off and bam, skull on my mirror. Now I took some bit and pieces I got at miriam's and hot glued them on. The 3 corners and the metal scrolly thing in the middle, Stuck a piece of Angela's bling on that part. Then i made up a bow, inked up some flowers and glued them on and stuck a little tiny clock there, and made some stick pins and put them on, both also from Miriams. and done.... Kelsie of course went crazy when she saw it, I am the coolest mom ever. And yeah, i am cool with that title :)

Now for some linkys for places for you to visit so you can get your own supplies to make one.
