Said the Spider to the Fly...

Good Morning :)
It's Friday and time for a new challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity :)
This week we would like you to share projects which feature creepy crawlies!
Our fabulous sponsor is Sassy Studio Design who are kindly offering one randomly selected winner 4 of their gorgeous images!
Hop over HERE for all the details entry and of course the fabulous DT inspiration.

When I started this card I knew I wanted to use some Halloween left overs I had in a drawer.
There was some cobweb stuff that sticks to everything but what you want it to and some fun plastic bugs.
Other than that I just went with the flow!

I started off with a piece of lovely Halloween paper from Basic Grey. It's a really old 6x6 pad from the Eerie collection.
I scraped some Gesso on to the centre of the paper with a palette knife, then when it was dry got to work with inks and stamps. I added some Glitter paste through a stencil then walked away lol!

Using up some of the scrap pieces from the paper pad I made a cluster of pattern then covered it with a piece of Chiffon, a piece of net and finally the cobwebs which refused to stay where I put it, in hindsight it would have been easier to put it under some paper but I wanted the words to float in the cobweb with the fly and the spider.

I'm teaching again this weekend at the regular monthly Crafts 4 Eternity crop, we will be making a mixed media snowflake card and a matchbox memory hanger!
Have a great weekend thanks for stopping by!

crafts 4 eternity
Our sponsors this week are Crafts 4 Eternity (me lol!)
One randomly selected winner will receive a choice of 3 digital stamps from the C4E collection.

All the challenge details, entry and gorgeous DT inspiration can be found HERE.

My project this week is a mixed media layout.
My 3 elements are Paint, Pattern Paper and a Photo.
The photo is of my eldest son Mikael who loves to read and can often be found with his nose buried in a good book!

The background was created with acrylic paint, modelling paste and stamping.

The chipboard flourish has been sat in my stash for a while and was painted with acrylic paints, stamped and inked with Distress ink.

The pattern paper was from a Fancy Pants 6x6 pad, The Good Life. 
I even managed yo use up a few of the scraps!

The modelling paste was added using a Crafters Workshop stencil and was brushed with some Perfect Pearls powder to give it a gentle shimmer.

That's all from me :) 
Thank-you for stopping by, I hope you will join us this week :)
Have a great day
Michele x
