Hiding In My Craft Room Post-Freestyle!

Hey All!!!

It's Saturday again! And guess what that means??? Another Hiding In My Craft Room challenge!!!

This week, the theme is:


I love when we have a freestyle type theme because we can make WHATEVER!

So, for my project, I made a paper mache item. I made a spell book out of a plain old item! Wanna see it??

It was SO EASY to make!

First, I painted the entire book in black paint. Next I took some crackle paint and did a thin layer on top of the black paint. Then, I took the purple paint and painted another layer on top, and FINALLY another layer of crackle paint.

While I waited for it all to dry, I pulled out my Theresa Collins Chic and Scary Cricut Cartridge and cut out "Poisons and Potions". I popped up the skeleton head on a pop dot to make it come out at you! I also cut 5 cuts from Craft Room Basics for me to mount the Poisons and Potions on. I glued them all together CAREFULLY to make it seem thicker, like an old scary book might look!

After I did that, I adhered it to the book, and coated once again with crackle paint!

I cant wait to get it up for Halloween in my house! Its going to look great!!!

OK all, please check out the rest of my DT sisters projects!!! They are ALL wonderful!!! Then, be sure to enter your project into the HIMCR challenge!!

Hope to catch you all Craftin' and Stampin'!
