SPOOKY !!..WITH A HAPPY ENDING



Hello Everyone...

Just popped in to tell you what happened to me the other night....

I was sitting on the couch Thursday night and Harry my dog was stretched out the full length on his, sound asleep when I heard..TAP....TAP...TAP...

I just froze and looked at the dog and he didn't even flinch..so I relaxed in my daydream at night again, when again..TAP...TAP...TAP...

Oh! come on...who's playing games with me..I  tried to ignore this tapping, but it just went on and on [just like me]..when suddenly guess who through themselves into my craftroom..MOJO..he came home...hooray!!...he had been tapping in my head to wake me up as he knew what to do...I'm so happy and played straight away and came up with this little piece.



Does it look like tree bark but going side ways...I cannot get the photo to turn so if you just tilt your head sort of.. to the right...there you go!..tree bark..lol..

I will tell you how I did it in a minute, just in case you don't know.



You can straighten your head now...this one is right side up...

Then came splashes of gesso and some card board boxes cut up to get the thick corrugation, and the gorgeous Dragonflies from the Graphics Fairy...fussy cut out and covered in thick glossy accents..



Last, the sentiment stamped from a clear set in my stash of stamps with no name.

To make the bark, I saw a video on U Tube by using masking tape...strips of tape scrunched up a bit as you stick it, then painted with gesso, then the brown,red and black added in small amount with a good soak with water and watch the paint run..so much fun.

So I'm back on deck and even managed a DT card today as it was my day off...2 more days to go and then I'm off for 2 weeks and cant wait..

Thank you all so much for the support and encouragement when mojo was gone..it really helped me relax and not think too hard, and now he is back so I'm really happy...

Have an awesome weekend.. Friday night here, work in the morning and another frost on it's way tonight..I can feel it in the air, but what a boomer of a day we will get..

See you tomorrow.
