Hi there! Or, should I say..... BOO!
Well, let's get into the Halloween spirit w/ this post! I subscribe to quite a few blogs, and as I was reading my email one day, I found a contest for Clear Scraps using acrylic on a Halloween project. Well, that got me thinking..... It took me a few days to come up w/ this idea, but here it is! I needed a new Halloween decoration anyway, so duel purpose! Love that!!! Anyway, so I went to my LSS and purchased 2 sheets of Clear Scraps acrylic, some Tattered Angels spray, and some other things for future projects, and yesterday I got to work! I decided to spell out the word BOO because that's the least amount of letters, and anything bigger would have just been too much.
I happen to have a whole alphabet of chipboard letters in many fonts and sizes. So, I took the large B and a small o and out of a coaster traced another o to match.
For the acrylic, I cut a piece of it and ran it through my cuttlebug w/ my spiderweb embossing folder. Then, I carefully filled in all the webbing "trenches" for lack of a better word w/ crystal effects (SU!) and then sprinkled some glitter on top. I let that dry a little bit, and then sprayed some Tattered Angels Slate mist on top of that to give it that blue/gray tint.
I also stamped on a piece of acrylic w/ Kitchen Sink Stamps' Owl & Autumn Moon tree. I just did the first image in Onyx Black. I cut the tree out, and adhered to the B. I also used the moon from that KSS set and stamped it in Going Gray. The clouds are vellum and I sponged the edges.
My spider is pretty cute, I do have to say! I rolled a piece of paper like you would a rolled flower. Then, I cut 8 pieces into thin strips and quilled them to make legs. I dabbed glue on the top of the "flower" as well as the tops of the legs and dipped everything in black sparkle fluff.
Well, I hope that this sparks your creativity for Halloween!
Have a great day!
