VLVS Guest Designer - Halloween "tag"

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!  

As you may remember, I was asked a few months ago if I would like to be a Guest Designer in October for VLVS! (VivaLasVegas Stamps! and my first project went LIVE on October 11th. (click HERE if you would like to see it).  And since the last time I showed you a mixed media layout, so I thought I would show you a mixed media "tag". 

But before I go on, I want to let you know that I will once again be giving away a $20 gift certificate to VLVS.  Details will be at the end of this post . . . so stay tuned.

Back to my project --- Since I absolutely LOVE Halloween, I decided to combine the best of both worlds . . .mixed media and Halloween . . . a gigantic Halloween tag!!!  After a couple false starts, I finally got it together.  Here's how it turned out: . .

VLVS products used:
High Gloss Embossing Powder
Miracle Tape:

Other products:  Mischievous by MME, wood paper from MME, UmWowStudio October 2012 kit, chipboard, cardboard, plastic lid, block letters from Tim Holtz, Vintage Photo and Black Soot distress ink, gesso, orange glitter, Timeless, Taupe & Tattered Leather mists, geltos (banana & blood orange), black Pitt pen, sandal & latte alcohol inks, cheesecloth, misc. flowers & grass, Tim Holze bottles, misc. dictionary pages, and misc. bottle labels, 

For the base of my tag, I used 9-1/2"x12 chipboard and 2 pieces of the orange printed paper from Mischievous paper collection from MME and using the brick background stamp,  I embossed it with black ink and high gloss embossing powder from VLVS..  Tearing dictionary pages to various sizes,, I distressed them with distress inks and then glued three (3) them on each side of the tag (by folding them in 1/2 but not making a crease).  Using three (3) sprays (Timeless, Taupe & Tattered Leather), I,sprayed around the tag. I also sprayed some misc. pieces of cardboard and using glossy accents, put glitter on my lid . . . then adhered to my tag along with the cardboard pieces..I also colored my stamped image and adhered it above the lid.

I used some wood paper and made my fence.  But since I didn't like the color, I used Sandal and Latte alcohol inks and changed the color. Once it was dry, I adhered it on each side of the tag so it would bow out.

I fussy cut "O-C-T-O-B-E-R" from the block letters and used my geltos on them to help them match my tag a bit better.  Using a glue gun, I adhered the letters to the outside edge of my lid.  I also glued bats in three (3) places.

I stamped my Kids with Giant Jack 'o Lantern stamp on to cream colored paper and colored it with my watercolor pencils.  Then I fussy cut it out and glued it to a piece of script paper.  Then tearing about 1/2" to 1" all around my image, I then distressed it with my distress inks.  Using a burlap-wrapped toilet paper roll, I placed it behind my fence to use it like a table.  I adhered several small bottles and added some fake grass and flowers.

I also sprayed some cheesecloth . . . then added that and a small book & tag from UmWowStudio Oct. 2012 kit.  Added a few more drops of spray and I was done.

Thanks so much for stopping by today . . . now to the other important stuff . . . . a $20 gift certificate to VLVS from ME!!!  To be eligible, become a follower (if you aren't already) and leave a comment that you did so.. You have till Saturday, Nov. 2nd to be eligible.  I will draw a name on Sunday and announce the winner on Monday, Nov. 4th.  Good Luck!!!

Till the next time I'm up in the night.  Kathy

pada sebuah kehidupan berumah tangga pasangan selalu membutuhkan alat bantu sex
untuk menghindari seorang suami berselingkuh dalam perjalanan luar kota alangkah baiknya bawa bekal boneka sex atau alat bantu sex vagina center minimal alat bantu sex pria dan alat bantu seks vagina getar
dan bagi pria atau suami yang penisnya sudah loyo pakai aja penis ikat pinggang penyangga jual alat bantu sex
untuk wanita yang maniak berhubngan intim tapi di tinggal pasangannya pakai aja alat bantu sex wanita
dan bagi wanita yang ingin berfantasi sex engan pasangannya alat bantu sexualitas wanita
jika anda mencari alat bantu wanita jangan ragu klik aja link ini alat bantu seks
kebanyakan orang dalam berhubungan intim mengunakan alat bantu seksual wanita atau alat seksual wanita
