I am so excited for Halloween!
Seems like every year it gets pushed back, Thanksgiving is forgotten
and Christmas starts in August!
OK off the soapbox!
Welcome to the DICC's 1st challenge of October!
And I am so thrilled that we are sponsored by SWEET ESCAPES
and they gave us some amazing Halloween images to play with.
This is the challenge...
Because of time constraints I was only able to make one card...
I chose to use The Dark Fairy image.
Hope you get a chance to join us this week!

Welcome to the first Desert Island Crafts Challenge!
So excited to be a part of this design team and
to be working with this great bunch of ladies.
Today is our first challenge...
Our sponsorship is by Delicious Doodles.
And the challenge was to choose 3 from this list..
I decided to use Venetian Beauty on my first card..
and chose celebration, spots or dots and stripes.
For my second card I used 3 Tiered Man Cake and
chose stars, let's eat cake, balloons and celebration.
Hope you like them.

I created a 10 x 10 wood plaque for a friend and coworker to
celebrate the day he was baptized.
I wanted to create something that would be house friendly; going with any decor,
as well as something that was masculine.
What better way to go masculine than with gears and bolts.
(Some of the stuff came from work)
I added texture and dimension with a wood grain stencil
and some modeling paste.
Then using several colors of distress stains I ended up with this...
The middle looks a little funky because the stencil is only 6" and I did not line up the
wood grain that well, but knowing I was going to do stuff in the center
and all the way across it worked.
The gears and stuff I painted with metallic paints and then
added some black here and there to give a bit more dimension.
I added a piece of cheesecloth that I soaked with some of the distress
stains and some Paverpol to make it stiff.
Hard to see in the picture but both sides go off the edges

I finally decided to try my hand with a sculpture.
And after several tries I am happy with the results.
The full details are on Paverpol's blog site
but I wanted to show you what the final results are...
Thanks Nikki for helping me take an idea to this. Love you my friend!
