Blog Hop around the World

Last week I was apart of TWO blog post - and both of them featured me as the one they would like me to answer these four questions.  I am not good at this part, but here I go...

1) What am I working on: This is a hard on for me to answer, I always have something new going on, most of the time, something I have never tried before. I love to think out of the box in off the page. But presently I have the new Chemeleon Pens on my desk, so I have been playing with them alot

2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
 I like to play with many different medium.  I am love to teach other

3) Why do I create what I do?
 It's a need... I need to create and I need more to teach other how to create

4) How does my creating process work? I'm a Thinker.... I think Think Think, then I create and pray they my project come out like it did in my head...LOL......

Now the next two blog I am sharing:

Halloween bottle

Happy Halloween

I just love Halloween and playing Dress up
here is my project for my Ebrush Design Team

Altered Bottle for Halloween

Wine Bottle
Dew Drops
Cat and Pumpkin Die Cut
Sharpies:  Green, Orange, Purple and Black

1)  Get some Ribbon out - I only purchase White or Cream ribbon and spray it using my Ebrush the color I need to match my project.  GREAT way to save yourself some MONEY. (see photo below)
2)  Drink a Bottle of WINE.... LOL
3)  clean all labels off your wine bottles - I soak them in warm water with baking soda and vinage
4)  Starting at the bottle of my wine bottle - start spraying with your EBrush and Shapie, I started with Orange and then added purple and end at the top of the bottle with black. (see photo below)
5)  Cut out image from Napkin - I cut out this Skull image - remove all of the White layer from your napkin, leaving only the Color Image part. 
6) Using PPA (Perfect Paper Adhesive) - add a nice thin layer to your bottle where you will be placing your napkin image.  Use a SOFT touch add your napkin image  
7) When you napkin image is Dry it's time to embellish - I add the Green ribbon I made using my Ebrush to the bottom of my bottle and then added the Cat and pumpkin die cut I had in my stash.  One last thing I added a few Dew Drops to my Skull image

color your own Ribbon using your Ebrush and a Sharpie 
Or any other marker you have in your stash 

See how cool the bottle looks with the Sprayed color

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have fun spray away!

Easy Halloween Banner

I am so honored to be apart of the Ebrush Design Team this Term.  Can't wait to show off some fun project over the next 6 months

See how cool and easy this is

Supply List
Sharpie - Black, purple
Banner Die cut from Quickutz
White Letter - 
Die Cut:  Spider Web and Spider

1)  Cut out Banner from Orange Cardstock - as many as you need - I need 3
2)  cut out Spider web and spider from Transparencies Or you can use card stock, I like the transparence because it's thinner and you get a better spray
3)  Lay the Spider Web on to your cut out Banner pieces 
4) using your Ebrush and a Black Sharpie - spray your Webs onto the Cardstock.  DO you love that!
5)  Now get those White Chipboard letters and let add some color.  I spray my with my Ebrush and a purple Sharpie - just love this idea.  I never have to purchase color letter again...
6)  Adhere your letter to the center of each Banner - add your ribbon to them.  
YOU are done!

Thanks for stopping by, IF you own a Ebrush, join our group on Facebook for more GREAT idea and helpful hints
