Stashbusting September Project #9: Nevermore and MORE!

After a day that started off rather stressful at work and seemed headed for worse, I am excited to head towards the end of the day on much brighter notes. First, I'm happy with the way something I made tonight turned out ( arent we all our own harshest critics?) and second, I got a note from Michelle at Someday Crafts that she was featuring my "Witchy Boots", and third and very exciting....I reached 300 Followers today!!!! Woo-hoo!!! Thank you all you wonderful chocoholics out there who have decided to follow my chocolate fueled ramblings. I will announce a fun giveaway tomorrow, and don't forget to link up to my Open House on Friday!!!

Since I was in an unpleasant mood when I started this project, I didn't take pix along the way. The steps are the same as the Owl project from last night. I love Edgar Allen Poe and wanted to do something for Halloween based on "The Raven". Of course The Graphics Fairy didn't disappoint but I also found some cool skulls at The Vintage Moth. So here 'tis. 

"Quoth the Raven, Nevermore"

Materials:
  • Canvas Art Board
  • Burlap design scrapbook paper
  • Scrapbook paper scrap
  • Black stamping ink
  • Cream acrylic paint
  • Avery clear label paper
  • K&Co adhesive borders
  • Mod Podge
I mounted the skulls on some scrap cardstock, trimmed, and adhered with foam dots for more dimension:
And I just wouldn't be me w/out some bling. Shouldn't skully eyes glisten?!

The birdcage is also from The Graphics Fairy. Off to find some chocolate!

Looks like your day turned a lot better than mine (thank got for chocolate as it helped preserve my sanity at work *G*. Congrats on a great milestone and the feature is well deserved. Your witchy boots are all totally cute. As soon as I manage to let go of the summer, I'll have to get to put one of those on my Halloween crafts list. I'm not quite ready yet ...

Very cool, I love the skulls, must go and print those out... I wouldn't want to get up in the middle of the night and see this on the wall, might scare the pee out of me before I made it to the bathroom.....
Oh, and congrats on the 300! Awesome!
