Tuesday again! - yes, there are YET more pix!

Morning all,

Woke up yesterday feeling grungy!! Craft wise that is! Had an idea in mind - it didn't turn out QUITE as I imagined it, in my head, but I'm happy with it and I did the best I could with my limited stash!! I wanted a quirky character but the only quirky image I had was far too big for my "virtual layout" so on to plan B!! I THINK it worked and hope you'll all agree - look forward to your comments - but, play nice! One of my blog buddies recently had some unpleasant comments and she's well talented, but, I digress - on to the card ....

Materials used:
  • 14.5cm square white, 300 gsm scallop edged card and matching card
  • 14cm square black card panel
  • 13.5 cm patterned card panel - from the DCWV OLD WORLD stack - 8" x 8" size
  • White doily (courtesy of Michaels)
  • Offcuts of both black and patterned card
  • white grosgrain ribbon, coloured using lavender and grey alcohol markers
  • TPC Studio dressmakers dummy image inked using Memento tuxedo black - stamped twice, once on to white card and once on to white paper to use as a mask.
  • With mask in place I inked the We R Memory Keepers wings using Memento tuxedo black
  • We R Memory Keepers sentiment inked using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Exposed edges of DCWV card and image panel edged using distress ink - dusty concord
  • Blending tool (with shades of purple and black) not re-inked but used to apply colour around image
  • Crystal stickles applied to wings

Our neighbour, Sally, recommended that we take a drive round the Disney township of Celebration if we wanted to see Halloween decor. We waited till dark and then, armed with cameras, off we headed to drive round Celebration. We drove round and round, frankly - it's a huge place. We found a sign which said "lights at Jeater bend" and wondered what it meant - we were both thinking traffic lights but no, it meant the photo you see below. The street was in chaos and there was a police cruiser parked - presumably to direct traffic if things got too bad!

Someone had put a signpost for this display, which came with the projection, sound ... and a police car, presumably to keep traffic moving!

This must have taken a while to work out too

This one's just plain cool!

Now this HAS to have taken AGES! It came with a skeleton projected on the house opposite AND music
Once we were done with the Halloween part we thought that we might as well park up and take a walk,, it was a pleasant evening, cooler than of late and far less humid too .... so ....

Part of the main section of shops and restaurants at Celebration township - it boasts a permanent Christmas shop ... the Market Street Gallery!

Just loved the reflections of this - across the lake at Celebration

If you look carefully, you can see there are two kids right in the middle of this - who'd want them in the car after this?!?!?

Over on the CASology blog challenge 16 has been unveiled, they have a clever idea of using a single word as inspiration and, so long as your entry is Clean And Simple, you can use the word however you choose. Cool idea - huh!? If my limited stash allows I shall be having a go at this one. Last week's single word was NIGHT and I struggled with this and consequently never got round to an entry - wish me luck this week! This week's word is WILD!

Hope you've enjoyed your night out at Disney's celebration, though I do believe it may no longer be anything to do with Disney, it was just their concept!

Happy Tuesday
