What’s On My Desk Wednesday - Lisa’s Halloween Challenge, Part 1.

These are the bits that Lisa (Craft Fairy) sent me for our monthly mojo challenge, included were papers, Sizzix spiders, pumpkins, and bats, ribbons, buttons and a wooden H. Hmmmmm
Picture58I gravitated to the wooden H first …. H for Halloween immediately sprang to mind …. so first job was to cover it with one of Lisa’s papers ….
Picture59….. then came the spider, I stuck two together using a sticky pad to add dimension …. doodled webs followed, which screamed for a few googly eyes, a small Sizzix lizard and Lisa’s buttons.  I also found some Halloween rub ons that Dianne in Florida sent me …. these were perfect.  I don’t use rub ons a lot …. but I am tempted to look for more word ones as they are a brilliant way of filling the odd gap.

Finally I drilled a hole in one of the corners, attached a jump ring and then a ribbon ….. et voila.

This is going to be part of a little pack of Halloween bits and pieces for my friends little boy who she adopted in April and this will be his first Halloween with her, so I wanted to give him something special that can come out each year and bring happy memories back over and over again.
