day 14 of 31 days of Halloween

no project again today but i do have pictures   we had  a blast at the halloween party    the party ended around Midnight  but we had a 3 hours drive and we stopped for  breakfast on the way home so it was a long night.   we had thought about several different costumes  but since we had a long drive both ways we decided to go for confort and just do jeans ,  tees and a mask 

My Husband with and without his mask in his very fancy tee shirt

and me  in my fancy butterfly mask and purple hair.   I was a  little worried about the purple washing out before work on Monday but it was actually washable and i can't even tell it was there ( i kind of liked the spikes purple look ) 

My daughter decided to go all out and dressed up as a guy complete with a mask that she made herself from a plastice face mask that you buy at hobby lobby and crayons that she melted over the top of it  before she melted the crayons she cut the mask in the shap she wanted 
thats it for today   I will try to have a project to post tomorrow i have the pictures all colored and ready just need to put them together.

day 9 of 31 days of hallwoeen mask

hope everyone is having a blast with the 31 days of Halloween blog hop by smeared ink   see side bar for list of players .

today i have another fun project using fingernail polish

this is a mask   i started out with a white plastic mask that i got at hobby lobby this is the small one

then i choose my colors  blue and purple glitter nail polish   a bit of black for the eyes

then i painted her half and half    let dry and i used two stamps on her  a script stamp which doesn't show up as well as i had hoped and an eye stamp   I thought she needed a third eye to make her look more halloweeny (is that a word)  :)

day 5 of 31 days of halloween fun frame

I made this piece from needle felting and clay faces a while and have been trying to figure out an interesting way to display it

i think i found it

i took a piece of white paper  glued it to some heavy cardboard and  stamped it with a background stamp

then i took some halloween themed paper  and rolled it around a pencil   taped it on the back side then i slid the  pencil out leaving the rolled paper cut it to size  and  attached it to the paper

i think it makes a nice and slightly spooky frame

i didn't get it sized quit right after i scanned it and it kind of looks lopsided but its not

day 4 of 31 days of halloween trapped

Help im trapped inside of a picture frame

this was fun  i had this halloween frame laying around for a long time waiting for a picture so i fussy cut the digi stamp and was going to cut her to fit but when i was playing with it
 i decided that she was trapped inside the frame was more halloweeny  ( is that a word)
