Well, as always, I got ambitious so here is my project for this GREAT hop!  On a personal note, these companies are all amazing and have excellent products.  Please make sure and check them out!
So on to my project for today...
This is a photo of the supplies used for my project:

I used the NEW Halloween paper, various BLING from Want 2 Scrap and of course GLITTER!  The tray is from McGuffey Woodworking and is very unique, the back unscrews  and is removable so you can work on a flat surface

I took the back off of the tray and then figured out my papers.  I then sat the frame on top just to make sure I liked the way it looked.

I then painted!
Now I will show you frame by frame what was added!  This is the fun part!!
I added black Art Glitter to the dress only of the witch on the broom.  I used some scrable type letters to spell wicked.  I also took my Dries Clear Glue and edged the witch panel then applied Gold Nugget glitter.  The other bling is fromWant 2 Scrap and I added it on the divider of the tray.
This is the next panel to the right.  I Used Pumpkin/Heather/Black Art Glitter on the Want 2 Scrap flourish chipboard.  I also edged the boarder with black glitter.  I love the BOO in the letters and the hint of additional bling on the flourish.
I just added some glitter to the edges of the photos but then added an actual skeliton key to the corner.  I may go back later and add more, but for now, I am happy!  I love how the glitter sets off the paper!
This is a fun and simple panel. I wanted the fun paper to show in the background so I just cut a section of the paper and edged it with glitter.  I then added a fun swirl of gold in color embellishments tot he paper.  I added a mosic tile in black and added the bling in the center.  As you can see another key has been added along with the starting of the word Halloween. (Notice the orange mosaic with bling in the corner!)
Again, don't you love all the BLING!  Of course the rest of the word is spelled out and another fun key is added.  More glitter and more sparkle!!
I have to admit, ths is my FAVORITE of all the panels!  I cut the clock out of a full sheet and then using the Kelly glitter went around the numbers with a paint brush and Dries Clear Adhesive.  Then I went in and added more adhesive with the the brush and used the Black glitter!  I added a bit of bling to the center of the clock hands.  I LOVE the pumpkin as the pedulum for the clock!  Of course, I added more Pumpkin glitter!  I also finished the phrase Halloween Fun!
So this is the finished box!  Hope you have enjoyed the hop!  Don't forget to got the Art Glitter Blog and leave a comment to get entered for the Blog Candy!

Thursday with Dreamweaver

It is a Summer Fun Challenge!  Dreamweaver is hoping you will be playing along this month for our challenge.  The winner this month will win one of our brand new Christmas Stencils!  So...what is more fun in summer for us in this industry is CHA!  For those of you that just read the blog for fun, this is the Craft and Hobby Association huge convention for the summer.   Dreamweaver has introduced our new designs for winter so I want to share some pictures from a class Dreamweaver offered to retailers yesterday!
Students Enjoying the class!

Louise giving GREAT helpful hints!
Laura helping out with crowd control!

A lot was learned and everyone had fun!  I think it was a success.  Now of course I want to share a card with you using a brand new stencil.  Happy Birthday is very summer fun!  And I don't know of anything more fun than a summer birthday and celebrating with a double glitter technique!
I used a waterfall technique on this card and applied one color at a time.  I then used Crystal glitter for the entire background!  I hope you are having a lot of summer fun!  Enjoy!

Happy Creating...
