Today's post is playing double duty.
Lots of pictures to follow...
First up, is my weekly DT piece for Smeared Ink.
I have used the Circus Procession digi set for my
heart worm medicine box make-over.
The box started out like this.
And after a few coats of gesso and paint, I have the perfect background
for these wonderfully vintage circus images.
Quite the transformation, if I do say so myself.
I covered the pocket with dp and added the creepy clown. I popped a
tiny hat on his head to lend to his creepy vibe. I used the trapeze chicks
on a tag that fits right into the pocket.
I used a Tim Holtz ATC sized embossing folder to make the ticket.
After randomly coloring it with fired brick and mustard seed distress inks,
I ran it over a Versamark pad, hitting all the raised bits, and then
clear embossed it to give it some shine and stability. Oh, and I added some
of my new Paprika Stickles on the edges for some sparkle.
I am loving the new Stickles colors!
Look! My very first hand made tassel!
I used some red and white baker's twine, and a YouTube video
to make the tassel.
This is the little insert box. I like it.
This guy gets a hat, too!
What circus is complete without specimens and freaks?
I popped this on the back of the box, because it was too large to go
anywhere else. The bat is from the "A Little Bit Batty" digi set.
I added the wording myself in Gimp.
I'd like to enter this box makeover in the following challenge(s):
And now for something a little different.
I have been stalking this artist (Lizzie Love), and her woefully sad looking
big eyed girls. I was having a hard time deciding which image to
buy from her Oddball Art Co. Etsy shop, and then she came out with a line of darker
images, and I was in love! She's called, Big Eye Zombie Girl Image No. 49.
I colored her with Copics using bright colors, trying to keep her girly looking.
I used some spider web die cuts and a TH die cut spider. Sorta looks like
she's fighting the spider off using her umbrella.
I added some ribbons to keep in the theme of
"Ripped to Ribbons" at Haunted Design House.
And it made it girly to keep with the theme of Girly and Glam.
This is about as girly as I can get.
