Smudgefest Finale - Synonymous Sunday

Wow! What a week - a creation each day and this is the last for the Smudgefest 2013 challenges over at Smudgy Antics. And as a special treat for the last day, we were all provided with a 'Ghoulipop' digi stamp to use on our finale project - anything goes but you have to use the provided image.

I printed out a page full of pops in different sizes and coloured them in different lollipop flavour/colours without really knowing what I was going to do with them! In the end I decided on a halloween canvas that we can hang every year... or maybe it will just be a permanent fixture!

I painted a 20cm squared canvas with red/orange acrylic paint and my 3yo decided that he wanted some green on it, so I let him do some random green painting! I then attached the Kaisercraft purple spotty and newsprint paper scraps from yesterdays project randomly using Mod Podge. The paint wasn't quite dry so everything has an eery green glow about it! I was concerned but I think I like it that way!

I stuck on a scrap of old black lace, some black tulle and a bit of crochet lace along with a metal corner embellishment.

The 'Happy Halloween' is a sizzix embossing folder on black pearlescent paper with some 'interference green' Perfect Pearls over the top after it was coated in versamark ink.

I will also enter this into the current Left of Centre Challenge - Use metal/LOC.
I have loved this now considering 31 days of Halloween... watch this space!
