Just a quickie or two

Since getting our new puppy, I have found it hard to locate
my mojo. I need to keep checking on him to make sure he isn't
getting into trouble or peeing in the house. He's pretty much potty trained, but
he still tries to eat everything he comes in contact with! 
That's another post, for another day... 

I have made a few things that haven't been posted yet, like
this cool, Steampunk-ish tag. This was so much fun to make! 

Got this great stamp from Pink Flamingo on Etsy.
It's called, "Otto's Sweet Ride", by  Brian Kesinger.

I added a few TH stamps and some random cling stamps. Then, I felt
the need for TH washi tape. Finished it off with the metal wings,
colored with alcohol inks, and the compass brad in the middle. 
I should totally do this more often. I really like the style of it. 
Whatever that style is.

I was also in the mood to alter something. I used this cardboard tray that 
our neighbor used to give us holiday cookies. 
Hope she wasn't expecting it to be returned to her.    

The first step was to get rid of this festive holiday brightness.
Only seemed like black gesso would do the trick. I love that it covers in
pretty much one coat. 

See? Looking better already! 

And now the decorating has begun!
I raided my collage scraps stash and came up with some cool bits.
I applied them with matte medium, and then used another coat to seal everything.

Here's a cute Nosferatu image from the interwebs, along with some die cuts and TH rub-ons.
I also added the nautical star brad for fun and a punch of color. 

Here's the matching version of The Creature from the Black Lagoon,
along with another rub-on and another Pink Flamingo stamp, stamped
onto an old dictionary page.

I have decided to use this to hold all the digis I currently am trying to color,
or want to color in the very near future. I always print out my new digis
right after I buy them, so I don't forget I have them. Lucky for me, my
husband's work printer uses the same inks as my home printer. I'm almost
guaranteed to never run out!

Thanks for stopping by!

Keep it Creepy!!!   


  1. LOVE it and those images are superb x

  2. I think you should fill that tray with toxic cookies, return it to your neighbour and see if she recognizes it!! ;o)

    Puppies require a lot of checking up on - to make sure they aren't chewing up a newel post or anything.

  3. you still have my snail mail, right? ...Ha Ha!!! This is fantastic girlfriend!!! I just love every inch about it!!! Hugs
