You can put your schtuff in it Day 7

Today I have an altered object to share for my daily 

I am always on the look out for cool and functional pieces to help
keep my chaos organized. I found this tiered organizer at a clearance
outlet, and despite how hideous the print was, I still saw the potential
in the overall shape. It is perfect for organizing and holding my digis
that I print off everytime I get new ones.

I love black gesso!!! It covers everything in one coat. 

After the gesso dried, I added various Halloween themed papers
in complimentary colors. Notice the complete lack of purple?
I don't even know how that happened, but I'm sure I'll make up
for it in a minute.

I added four Tim Holtz decorative box feet to the bottom.
This adds height, and such a nice weight and finished look to the
whole piece. 

I stamped various verbiage onto the designer papers,
and added more color using TH Distress Inks and sponge applicators.
Lastly, I sealed everything with a matte medium.

Ah, there's some purple!
All is right with the world. 

I colored this gorgeous witch called, 'Mystique', by 
Rick St. Dennis. She's available here.
I cut her out with a circle die and added lots of Stickles for a
glamorous sparkle.  
I love how the box turned out, and it holds a ton of digis. 

Here's a couple of cute Halloweenie things in my kitchen.

Bat salt and pepper shakers on a cool rack. 

They remind me of the bat things in Beast Master. Kinda.

And I had to have one of these glass mason jar cups
to sip my pumpkin spice iced tea in. It sweats, but it looks
good doing it.

Thanks for stopping by today.
See ya tomorrow with some more cool Halloween schtuff!
