Final week of Snow Poe

'Shiitake mushrooms' I totally forgot to do this post...you know when you know you've missed something but can't think what...so annoying. My final piece for this challenge is a mixed media hanging, I have used a piece of mount board as my base then used homemade molding paste, lace, paints and flowers along with Rubber stamps from Smeared Ink.  You've got one week left to your work entered with us at Quoth the Raven, remember it must be Poe related and for this challenge needs to be white with one other colour.

WOYWD Wednesday

Oh my goodness it's been like 3 years since I last joined in with this! I'll be totally honest I was looking at some past blog posts and saw a link to Whats on your work desk Wednesday and I thought, I used to enjoy doing that, I wonder why I stopped. Well I have no idea why I stopped but I'm back at it again now LOL. So what is on my desk today? Actually not a lot as I cleaned it off earlier while trying to find my camera. I've got a stamped image from Smeared Ink that I have just finished colouring in and a few bits I am going to use to create something with that image.
 


I'm looking forward to looking through everyone's blogs again and being inspired!

Zombie Bookmark

I've got a bookmark to share with you today, I was helping my eldest son with some art homework, showing him how to apply paint with a pallet knife, so I ended up with a sheet of black card with red paint all over it. I figured it would come in handy so put it up to dry, when I was thinking about what I was going to make for this week I saw the piece of card and thought...this would work with a zombie. I  cut out a piece in the shape of a coffin, added one of the stamps from the Zombie pinup set along with one of the sentiments and made myself a new book mark.


You still have a few days left to join in with this months challenge at Smudgy Antics

I'm Poe Fairy!

I am totally pushing my luck with this piece and totally understand if the challenge blog decide to remove it for not fitting the challenge....I saw challenge, on the fantasy stampers challenge blog, called fairy nice. As soon as I saw it I thought Poe with fairy wings, after all even the darkest of people like a bit of fun and what more fun than donning some sparkly fairy wings LOL

I used the Poe and wings from Smeared Ink's Quoth the Raven rubber set.  I added some gold glitter glue to the wings then wrote out the words on some black card with perfect pearls. While all that was drying I put the background down on my journal page, well ok so that only took 5 minutes so I then spent the rest of the drying time on Dance Central LOL Once everything was dry I attached pot to a piece of string and hung it from one of the clouds so he is floating on the page. I then cut out all the words and stuck them all down.



I'd like to enter this into the following challenges

Under the sea

I felt the need to get messy today and all the other projects I am working on are in different stages and all drying so I started something new, I wanted something that I could start and finish in one sitting. I decided on this mixed media banner. I have used various ephemera that I had which matched the under the sea theme and then I stamped up one of the stamps from Smeared Ink's Abyss rubber set. She has been coloured in with spectrum noir markers. 





I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
