*YIKES!* The stinking thing is COVERED with spiders! *sigh* That's because I love Halloween. Yes. I love Halloween, but I hate spiders. Spiders are often associated with Halloween, as MOST people hate them...and they add to the general scariness of it all.
*sidenote* I looked up the spider associate, actually, and found that it was introduced much later than we like to think and is genuinely based on the fear factor. Arachnophobia is one of the most common phobias in the human race and it is the PRIMARY reason spiders are associated with Halloween. I find that interesting. At least it isn't clowns. I REALLY HATE CLOWNS. And heights.
WAIT JUST A MINUTE! Isn't public speaking considered the MOST common human fear? If that is the case, maybe we should just make everyone give speeches every Halloween! HA!!!!! (That is one I don't have, oddly enough, so I'd be okay with that!) What scares YOU to death????
Anyway, back to my spider piece. It is made entirely with supplies from the every fabulous Retro Cafe Art Gallery! I used the Spider Web Halloween cut outs, the Steampunk Parts digital collage sheet (also available in printed form), Tim Holtz corked vials, some black glitter, and diamond glaze. I coated the cut piece from the collage sheet with diamond glaze and then inserted it and used the end of a paint brush to smooth it against the glass. I then brushed the adhesive all around the inside and covered it with glitter and adhered the entire thing to the web with spiders. *I hate spiders. Just say'n.*
I also made this fun little card!
The image is another adorable cut from a digital collage sheet, the Halloween Dollies sheet, actually! I added it to some Core'dinations cardstock that I sanded. I cut the framed label with my Art Philosophy cartridge and then stamped the sentiment with a fun Samantha Walker for Unity Halloween stamp from the Bones About Halloween set! That fabulous ribbon is, of course, May Arts, and I added a little witch hat cutout, coated in glitter, from Retro Art Cafe to top it off!
I am linking my card up to the My Time to Craft Orange and Black challenge!
So. I hope you have a super stupendous Thursday! I shall see you all soon!!! Don't forget to leave a comment so I can stop by your blog and say HI!
