On the Fence BundleThis bundle comes with a brand new exclusive die template manufactured by Spellbinders Paper Arts called On the Fence Die! What makes this die unique? It's versatility! At first glance, you might see just a fence but soon you'll realize it can be so much more. Follow us on the blog hop each day from August 27-31 to find out what all this die can do. Let's get started. Here's my project for the day:
The minute I got the "On The Fence" bundle, I knew I wanted to do something spooky! There is something about fences that get me thinking of Halloween. I created this little paper house as a tea light luminary. I started with the wood texture stamp and embossed it with WOW embossing powder in Black Glint. I did the same with the windows and shutters.
The fence was die cut from wood grain embossed cardstock. This die was so easy and cute!
I cut out the windows and added stamped vellum that was ripped to create the look of broken glass. It was easy with the Rubber Cafe's Scrap Happy Glue! It holds on and doesn't let go!
Here's another view. I created the top with a piece of the fence die cut and assembled with a slit cut at the top of the roof.
Here's the center of the window as a single window with shutters pop-dotted.
Trick of treat anyone? By the way, the edge of the roof was created with the fence die cut. I just placed the edge over the top of the die and ran it through...
The doors are actually windows from the "Through A Window" set. I embossed it with WOW embossing powder in Black Glint over a book page. Do you see the door knobs? They are Jellie Dots in Black Soot!
Here's what the little house looks like lit up... I used a battery-operated tea light (for safety's sake) to create the glow inside!
I hope you enjoyed my project for the blog hop! Make sure you leave a comment and head to the Rubber Cafe blog to leave a comment there for a chance to win the prize!
Did I get you in the Fall mood? Halloween is just around the corner!

Okay, here is my project...
I created a mixed media altered canvas using many of the products from both companies!! LOVE these together!
The canvas was primed with black gesso and then Gelatos were colored over the dry surface and smudged with my fingers.
White gesso was then applied with an old credit card and scratched into with a sharp tool.
Using Twinkling H2Os I stamped with Creative Imaginations wood mounted stamp.
I colored some Prima letters with Twinkling H2Os after coating them with Primary Elements Bind & Resist first to create a better adherence.
After stamping gesso on the canvas with a foam block, I dripped Twinkling H2Os down in the same colors I used on the letters.
Here's a close up of the painted area using my favorite colors of the Twinkling H2Os...Lemongrass and Mandarine Citrine!
I loved the stencils from Creative Imaginations... the wings and heart were my favorites! I used Gelatos mixed with water and sprayed for the heart and then outlined it in PITT artist pen with a small tip. The wings were made with modeling paste mixed with Black Licorice Gelato and LuminArte Dragonfly Wing powder. The result is a black with sparkle that is stunning!

Also, my Journey Bag class has been rescheduled for September 8th from 2-4pm. It is all Prima and Faber Castell products and very generous! The cost is $52 for the class and materials.
Both classes require a basic kit of scissors, paper cutter (although the store has one), pencil, liquid adhesive, and distress tool. It would be helpful if you can bring a non stick mat and a brush with you as well!
Don't delay! These classes are FULL of Prima goodness that is brand new from CHA 2012!
