Designer Monday with Halloween

Pin It
I have had several posts go live lately and I am LOVING playing with the jewelry, ICE Resin and all sorts of things.  I have a couple more pieces I am going to share. 



This is a fun piece I have done just to be a little creepy.  My son is the Zombie of my dreams!  And as a good mother, I am not far away! LOL  Craft Attitude made it easy with their Jewelry Attitude line! After I printed the photos on the paper they had to dry.  If you look at my post from a few days ago you can see a bunch of projects!   This is all my projects drying...
After I let them dry I cut out the images I wanted with the Spellbinders Artisan Machine and dies that match the bezels.  Then after they were attached to bezel I used ICE Resin over the top.  Let it all dry and then attach the pieces to each other with a jump ring!
This piece is done with Art Glitter Designs Dries Clear Adhesive and Shards Glass Glitter!  I put the adhesive in the bezels and then poured on Shards!  Let it dry, added the skull  and then poured in the ICE Resin.  I let it cure for about an hour then added the Connie Crystal Black Crystal Sheets.  I cut a piece to fit the side then added one crystal for each eye and one in the center of the heart and let it dry the rest of the way.  I decided a plain cord would look great.  I may change my mind later...but for now, I like it.

Hope everyone has a SPOOKTACULAR Halloween!

Craft Attitude Blog Hop-Spooktacular

Pin It
Wow, I had no idea when Jonathan Fong invited me to be part of this hop I would fall in LOVE!!!  I got a pile of goodies from Craft Attitude
 
I did not know there were so many options.  In case you did not know...
 
De 'core Attitude * Flower Attitude * Jewelry Attitude * Magnet Attitude * Quilt Attitude *Scrapbooking Attitude * Shoe Attitude * Wood Attitude

Don’t forget…this is a HOP.  
The blog hop will run for two weeks starting Monday September 30th. Here is the schedule:

Check out these spooktacular Halloween projects using Craft Attitude.
 
So I got really carried away and made some Jewelry, Magnets, Shoes & Wood!
I started small and started with the Magnet Attitude.  I found some fun creepy photos from Halloween and decided to make fridge art!  Here is the process
The Printable Sheets, Magnet Sheet & Instructions

On your computer find the images you want to use and print.  I just stacked them on a page and sent it to the printer.

Print on the glossy side of the paper.

Trim the photos.

I cut the magnet to size and sprayed with adhesive.

Apply images to magnet and peel off the backing.

Cut out images on the sheet if you are trimming closer.

I peeled the image and attached to the magnet.

The finished magnets!
Love the zombie child!

I followed the same process with the next couple of projects.  I did have to flip some of the images to print backwards on the printer but when applied to the surface, the images are correct!

WOOD ATTITUDE


 I sprayed the image this time rather than the wood surface.
Printed backwards so it is readable once transferred.  Images by Lora Brier (Queen Kat Designs)
 Place image glue side down.
 Carefully Peel...


I added some Art Glitter Accents!

JEWELRY ATTITUDE
This was a bit tricky as I was using the Spellbinders Bezels by Susan Lenart Kazmer...Yes ICE Resin!!  Also, since some of the images were lighter I needed a white surface for the images to go over.  I added Pearl White Glitter as a base over Dries Clear Adhesive.   I love the look it gives the finished pieces! 

 I used 2 sizes of heart dies for one Bezel...I wanted the necklace to match the shoes!




 The flying witch image is actually from a SCARF!

 Yes, I had a GREAT time!
 This is how it looked before everything was dry and no resin.
 
 
The finished piece with fun sprinkles of spooky fun.  I LOVE how you can see the flying witch under the "WICKED"  FACE!  Yes, I am doing a witch cackle NOW!
Bonus...Steampunk Girl! Fun Connie Crystal Accent with gears and things!
 
AND FOR THE FINAL PROJECT.....SHOE ATTITUDE!
I have had these shoes for some time one reason I bought them was so I could, at some time, alter them.  Well this was the perfect opportunity.  I did flip one image of the witch so they would line up correctly on the toes of the shoes.  I will say, this was the most tricky as my shoes were very soft and flexible so had to make some make-shift patterns for them and cut the Shoe Attitude accordingly.
Mirror Image for the toes.
Glitter is the perfect finishing touch!

Thanks for checking in today!  Hope you get your Craft Attitude on and do some serious creative play! This was the first time I have ever used these wonderful products and it was super fun and easy!  Hope you get yours soon!
 
Creatively Yours,
