One Huge Spider!

 I feel like I haven't posted anything since - forever.  It really hasn't been that long, but it's been busy.  Thursday night was taken up with an event, and on top of having a Professional Development day for school on Friday, our family had our Thanksgiving dinner since it was the only time both kids would be around.  So - it's was busy - but it's nice to know that the rest of the long weekend will be relaxing!

So - today - once I gutted out my stamping room - AGAIN - I worked on the Friday Mashup!
  1. Make a "Halloween themed" Project.
  2. Or Make a Project using the colors: "Black, Pumpkin Pie, Lucky Limeade & Concord Crush".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Halloween project using the Colors listed above".
Honestly, I have been wanting to make a spider using the same method I've been making pumpkins with - and today was the day.  He is made with the Concord Crush - just to make him more deadly - and once I put the pieces together I spritzed them with the glimmer paint.  Finally, I just HAD to add some googly eyes which I have from past crafting days.

I brayered the raised side of the spider web embossing folder before putting in the paper.  I don't mind the little bit of smudging around the edging that happened while brayering. 

I used the Halloween image from the "It's a Wrap Holidays" and coloured in the "empty" words with the Versa Mark Pen.

This is a banner I worked on last week - I TOTALLY cased it from a demonstration at Regionals.  Well, all except the Y - for some reason I didn't take a picture of the Y.  Duh!!! 

Well, I'm off.  Tonight we are helping a friend celebrate her 50th birthday.  Should be a good time!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far - Thanks for visiting.  Joan
