What sort of Boos? Day 20 of 31DOH extra


CLEVER DEXTER CHALLENGE #10!

This month we invite you to join in with

THEME: Here for the Boos!


START DATE: October 1 2020
THEME: Here For The Boos (whatever that means to you)
COLOR PALETTE: Green, Purple, Orange, White, Black (optional)
SPONSOR: Oddball Stamps


Please visit the Clever Dexter Challenge Blog to find out more...

Here is my second inspirational make for this challenge. Once again I have made a journal page and my background used Halloween colours with acrylic paint (including neons), stencils and stamps.


Then thinking of 'Boos' I started looking for bottles (!) amongst the Oddball images.
I found CCC79 and the November Exclusive from last year.

I printed the images a few times and coloured them with markers and neon paint.




Finally I added  some white paint through a Tim Holtz stencil and some Posca pen... and some shading round the bottles.

Hope you will come and join us!!





 I will be sharing today's Halloween make to
 Leigh's linky for Day 20 extra

Hope so see you at both Clever Dexter and Leigh's hop...

Ike's World Challenges #137 V is for Vehicles, Day 20 of 31 Days of Halloween

This is my make for Ike's World Challenges!



If you pop over to Ike's World you will see there is a freebie to pick up...

Car Wash


You might like to use this but you have free choice...

I have used Witchy Silhouette in my card - the broomstick is my vehicle! - and you will find this amongst Ike's Freebies


I printed the image over the striped paper which is actually more orange than pink or red.
I trimmed this to size and added it to a layer of black card on a teal card base.


I then added the stamped bats (Tim Holtz) and the Halloween sentiments (Lisasaltered art)


Hope you will pop over to Ike's World Challenges and see the Design Team's inspiration for the current challenge - and join in!

So let's celebrate Halloween!!
Do join in - with maybe just one post!


Once again I am adding more stuff to my Halloween junk journal and embellishing it a bit more. Today's new page is this:


Again I added twinchies (two inch square pieces of mixed media art) inspired by Laly Mille in the Life Book 2021 Taster Sessions. This time the extras were a spider and web - old stamps from The English Stamp Company.
I added some scribble with a Micron pen.

I added these to this page - the other side has some Oddball ATCs on it.


I will add this page to Leigh's Linky!


Here are some more pictures of other pages...

So let's celebrate Halloween!!
And we are over Half-way!!

I am just continuing from yesterday with my Haunted Houses poem book.

This illustrates the poem Haunted Houses by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.


Yesterday I showed you this page:


Today I have the second page with the second verse for you:



The spider web is a Tim Holtz stamp, the door is from Dark Room Door. Once again they were stamped with black Archival directly onto the marbled background. I added a bit of penwork, the verse trimmed and with black soot Distress Ink around the edges and two more ghosts. These were again cut with tracing paper and with a touch of Zig clear pen on the top. Please click on the photograph to see them better!


I will add this second page to Leigh's Linky!

And I am very pleased to be participating in the Countdown to Halloween Blog Hop



Happy Hopping!


 



Have you watched the fairies...


This is my make for the DT team of Outlawz


Sunday - Songs and Rhymes

The  challenge for this month  is to take inspiration from this poem:


Have You Watched the Fairies

(Rose Fyleman)

Have you watched the fairies
when the rain is done,
Spreading out their little
wings to dry them in the sun?
I have, I have!
Isn't it fun?

Have you heard the fairies
all among the limes
Singing little fairy tunes
to little fairy rhymes?
I have, I have,
Lots and lots of times!

Have you seen the fairies
dancing in the air
And dashing off behind the stars
to tidy up their hair?
I have, I have,
I've been there!


Note:  The theme doesn’t have to be taken literally.  You may use any word or phrase out of it for your project.
Here is my card:



The image is coloured with Copics and die cut into a rectangle. It is from Sherry West Art
I added faux stitching around the edges with a fineliner.


I added this to a white card blank matted with teal. I printed the sentiment on the computer, trimmed it and added faux stitching. I put this in place and then added the buttons.


You will find this on the Outlawz  Sunday Songs and Rhymes Challenge on October 18th.


Happy Crafting!
