~ A "BOO" Wall Hanging and Framed Pumpkin Art ~

Thank you so much for following along on our Blog Hop today!

No it is time to head over to Wendy Dodds' Blog to see her artwork! 
Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas!

My daughter came for a visit & we did some creating ~ She used paper from my Stash & I used the current paper from the  Annual Catalogue

Here is how we put it together:

BOO Wall Hanging

 Start off with three small canvases (we got ours at the dollar Store)
Ink the edges in Black Ink ~ Let dry...

WARNING: this is a messy process... you may want to wear gloves!

Next, cut your Scaredy Cat B&T paper to fit top of canvas.
Ink the edges of paper with a Sponge Daubber  ~ we used black ink.

Glue Paper to front of canvas using Bonding Memories Glue

Cut out Letters from Philosophy Cartridge and Chalk it up black With Stars B&T paper and attache to canvas using Foam Tape.
Stamped with  Halloween Stamp set & spooky images Images from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge

Use Ribbon & staple to back for hanging and 2 pieces to join the frame to hang.
Now hang onto your wall or interior door to greet little Ghouls on Halloween!

Thanks Framed Pumpkin
Using a dollar store wooden frame we have used B&T paper for the background
then matted a smaller piece of B&T on Black Cardstock
Cut 4 Scalloped Circles, fold in half & glue together all except last
Using Pear Cardstock cut a small strip & roll a stem, free hand cut a couple leaves
Use a Marker to add veins & lines on the Stem
Ink edges with Olive Ink
Glue to mini matt
Glimmer trim on inside edge of frame

Look for our next Blog Hop where we will feature beautiful Christmas projects, 
see you soon!

So Grateful for you
