Yahoo! It's time for another Smeared and Smudged Member Blog Hop! If you haven't joined this fun, creeptastic group then run here and join! Each month we do member hops, swaps, and challenges and the oh so awesome 31 Days of Halloween in October with it's awesome chances to win prizes! This month the ladies gave us free reign to create anything! So many thoughts what to do? what to do? Oh, yeah, I have been loving the Finnabair style made famous by the awesome artist Ania Dabrowska (found here) and just happened to have a new Rick St. Dennis image of Frankenstein (look here for "Frankie") looking at me with sad eyes begging for attention! So you guessed it! I took a shot at combining the two! I am in love with this! Not that I did a good job or anything like that..you know I am not conceited, but it just came out how it looked in my head! Seldom happens that way!
This is a fat page 6 x 6 inches covered with scrapbook paper from scraps with golden fabric spray behind Frankie's head with black mesh also behind his head. Then the fun began..nuts, bolts, Christmas light bulbs, safety pins, paper clips, screws, beads, etc! I took my hot glue gun and ran some drips down each side and added my sentiment. I painted the tops with all white and then used a pink and purple spray I made from tempura paints. I sponged on dark green and dark brown on top of that finishing with a spray of the golden fabric spray. His eyes hold not frightfulness to me but sadness and that is where the sentiment came from. This fab digital stamp is colored with Prismacolor pencils no gloss for the eyes; I wanted to keep the sadness there. Black and green oil sticks were used around face and edges. Also green and purple Stickles around "hair" and sentiment.
Now I am letting Yoshi choose another winner this month from the comments left below. So please leave a comment so he can pick your name for a happy package! Last month's winner was Teresa (so sorry it took so long to get to you!) and will try to get this month's out on time! But the most important thing you need to do is go to the other blogs and leave lots of love for them! You won't be disappointed, promise!
Happy crafting and check out Smeared and Smudged on Facebook!
