Creep-a-Day Challenge Day 5

 Candy Corn Painted Wine Bottle!

Um...nailed it?


A few months ago, I saw some adorable candy corn painted wine bottles on Pinterest and wanted to try making them. I think mine turned out okay, but it can definitely be improved upon!

Cautions: Don’t use spray paint in a confined area. Make sure you have good ventilation.

a clean wine bottle
white spray paint
I used whatever paint we had on hand.
orange spray paint
yellow spray paint
a plastic tarp, sheet, or garbage bag

The How:
I put down a plastic garbage bag in our garage and set the bottle up, making sure there wasn’t anything close by. I really didn’t want overspray on anything.

Hooray for poor painting skills!

I shook up the can of white paint and put on a couple coats, letting the paint dry between coats. This took a very long time because it was so cold out. The drips in the paint are a sure sign that this was indeed a handmade craft…

That's some stellar work right there!

Once the paint was dry, I sprayed on the orange (Chevrolet Orange, to be exact). I tried really hard to keep the paint in a pretty consistent band around the bottle, but you can see how well that turned out.

Once the orange dried, I sprayed on the Daytona Yellow paint, again doing a swell job keeping the band consistent all the way around the bottle.  That makes it unique, right?

When the paint was dry-ish, I brought the bottle inside and set it down on some waxed paper. I think it turned out kinda cute and I might be making more of them. I better stock up on some wine…
This will make the Pinterest Fail, I'm sure.

31 Tags of Halloween: Day 6

Oh my goodness, today started off badly. I'm not feeling so great, but I have to power through this little challenge, so here we are. I'm grateful that I at least have the day off to wallow in crankiness.

Initially, I wanted to make a ghostly tag and have some cool stickers on it that spell out 'Boo' but as with most projects, things took a turn...

I grabbed a tag, some nice Tim Holtz Halloween paper, those cool stickers, a Tim Holtz Paper Doll, Ranger Pigment Ink in Glacier White, Distress ink in Tea Dye, Glossy Accents, cheesecloth, and my favorite Tim Holtz tree stamp.

I inked up the stamp in Tea Dye, but it was lighter than I remembered. I grabbed some Distress ink in Walnut Stain and added lowlights and edged the card really well.

I dabbed the Glacier White over the paper doll to give her a very faded appearance. As she dried, I inked my stamp in Glacier White and stamped it onto my tag. Ghostly, but too ghostly. My heart sank. I grabbed my Archival ink in Black a…

31 Tags of Halloween: Day 12

Today's tag was really begun last night and finished today. I'm not feeling very well today so I'm at home taking it easy. I decided to make a shaker tag when a piece of Tim Holtz packaging caught my eye and I'm planning on submitting it to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge "Not a Card" this week.

Let me start by saying that I haven't ever made a shaker card or tag before but inspiration struck me and I cobbled together something a little different...and definitely not a card!

My supplies included a tag, Tim Holtz Halloween paper stash, Tim Holtz Vignette Panel, Distress Stain in Hickory Smoke, Distress Ink in Black Soot, Distress Marker in Black Soot, Glossy Accents, Tim Holtz Collage Medium, Tim Holtz Halloween ephemera Eye doctor, Tim Holtz Pumpkin Pieces plastic packaging, Distress Clear Rock Candy glitter, black glitter paper (from my stash), E6000 glue, Tim Holtz metal word band, Tim Holtz Halloween Trimmings, and black creepy drape fabric.


31 Tags of Halloween: Days 14 and 15

Yesterday, I didn't craft at all because I hosted my 2nd Annual Haunted Open House! It was such a fun day with lots of visitors and some of my creations went off to very good homes. By the end of the day I was 100% spent so I decided to just make two tags today.

I'm pretty tired and I didn't get any process photos either but I'll do better tomorrow!

Tag 14 is a spooked black cat that I made using Tim Holtz Halloween ephemera, Tim Holtz Halloween Clippings stickers, Distress Marker in Black Soot, and Distress Ink in Carved Pumpkin and Lucky Clover.

I inked the entire tag with Carved Pumpkin and edged in Lucky Clover. I edged the cat ephemera in the Black Soot marker and added it to the tag with Glossy Accents.

I edged the stickers in Lucky Clover and added Glossy Accents to the back to help it stay on better.

Tag 15 was a bit of trial and error. I used Distress Ink in Wilted Violet and Black Soot Archival in black, a Tim Holtz Halloween Clippings sticker, and Glossy Acc…
