31 Days of Halloween - Day 26


Welcome 
to Day 26 of the 
Smeared and Smudged 
31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop!

Today I have two projects for you!!!!


Scroll down to see more of the POE Cube!


Everyday during October you will find a new Halloween project on all of the blogs listed to the right under the 31 Days of Halloween Badge (blog roll). There are prizes to win, be sure to check out all the rules HERE. Information on the daily scavenger hunt is posted there! You must go HERE to find the item/s you are looking for in the scavenger hunt. Have fun and Good Luck!

We are having a rainy day and the power keeps flickering so I am going to be fast tonight... Here we have easy peasy treat envelopes!!!  You can use them for gift cards, candies or just a card!

On the examples here,  washi tape was used, but pattern paper could be substituted for the washi tape.

Skulls (Reflections) were stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder on black and adhered to the envelope.
Now they are ready to fill!!!! 


Power stayed on... Had time to make a second project...
A POE CUBE!

Gesso a 2x2 wood block from Altered Pages, prime with gesso. Paint with Art Anthology Dimensional Paint - Terra Cotta.

Stamp with Limited Edition - Old World Collage and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Ink the edges and emboss.



Cut images from the Edgar Allan Poe Altered Pages collage sheet.  Adhere with Antique Creative Medium. 



Now it is ready to give to the POE lover... or display in your own home!

Flickering power just adds to the atmosphere. We don't realize how good we have it until things we depend on are taken away. Great ideas with your first project and things that can be made with stash on hand.

Loving your Poe cube. It would be perfect for the Nevermore Rapport party later this month.
I love parties and hops. Always nice to meet new people.
