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. 

 The bottom part of the B is toile that I sponged black and tore in several places.  Do you like the Frankenstein coming out of the frame?  I drew him myself!  I made a face in my mirror and drew what my face looked like.  So pretty!  LOL!  Anyway, then I drew his hands and put them on top of the frame so it looks like he's trapped in the frame and can't come out!

Well, I hope that this sparks your creativity for Halloween!
Have a great day!
