Day 17 of the 31 Days of Halloween

The base for this project was a set of chipboard shapes with pretty pink, black, white, green and yellow floral designs on them - both sides. They were joined together with a ball keychain. I think these were also a gift from Pam. But I do buy stuff for myself once in a while! One thing I got in anticipation of the Blog Hop was a small box of glittery Halloween cutouts from K & Company, actually the kind of stuff I almost never buy but this was in a box that looked like a little porch with a cutout window. And that's the kind of stuff I fall for! So no ideas and all this STUFF! I started arranging the pieces on the shapes and it was kind of fun. Got out the Distress ink pads, applied Halloween colors to cover the springy flowers, stamped backgrounds to enhance each loosely themed piece and started gluing. Just what I needed to get my head back in the game!!

                                          



I was just grabbing and throwing stamps so if you have questions, I'll try to figure out which ones I used.

There were so many mind blowing projects yesterday that my comments didn't do justice to. Time just slipped away. The Hop continues from here to Lisa' s imaginative creations.And thank all you visitors to this tiny corner of the web for your kind comments!!

Ah! These came out SO neat! You could have gotten away with using one for each day, they are so detailed and cool. You are definitely "in the game" but I never thought you were "out of it" either. I always enjoy your work so much. These are such fun, I remember when you got that set of cardboard pieces - such fun to see what you did with it.

Oh my goodness! These turned out so cool...without even planning! I have a huge smile on my face right now :D. I love the fun, quirky collage pieces. The colors are vibrant and each piece is its own work of art! I can't find adequate words, but I LOVE your project!
