1  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Mini Coffins on: September 09, 2013 12:37:53 PM
This is the first that I've posted in an actual thread. I've been posting in the Newbie craftalong, but I think it's pretty safe to "fly" out into the world  Wink

A friend of mine wanted something a little different to decorate her store. I had started a bigger one, and she liked it! So she and her son asked if I would make some for their front window. I still have 4 more to do, but I must say I'm pretty happy with the way these 2 came out. They are both the smaller coffins I found at Micheal's, I think they're 4".


The one on the left is a "simple" coffin, the one on the right has a special surprise inside. Both are stained with Tim Holtz distress stains. I never knew about this stuff until recently! I LOVE EM'


Pretty simple. Awesome paper I found at the local overstock scrapbook store here (I love that place). The rose was with the 3D Haunted portrait stickers. Just thought it looked pretty.


The harlequin design goes all the way around


Originally we were both thinking about doing an actual liner, probably will eventually, but for now this will do  Grin


This one has a special surprise inside. I love these stickers. We have a few of the actual haunted portraits. Thought they would go well with the coffins


Back. I didn't do this on the simple, thought it might be too much


This border also goes all the way around.


And the surprise on the inside! Maybe grave robbers got to the other bits  Grin

I knew that the skeletons would not fit into the coffin whole, so I cut them up. I placed all the pieces in at first, but thought it was too busy. So I just chose bits and pieces.
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Anyone tried using scrapbook paper on Fun-Kins? on: August 21, 2013 09:28:48 AM
I really want to try and use some awesome halloween paper I found on a Fun-Kin, but because it's heavy stock I'm not sure abou how it will sit. Some wrinkles I would be fine with, but I'd prefer to keep the whole thing as smooth as possible. I know Mod-Podge has some thinner paper out that works great on fun-kins, but I really like this paper. Has anyone used the heavy stock scrapbook paper on fun-kins? Is there a way to maybe thin out the paper, without destroying it?
3  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Finally joined! on: July 30, 2013 10:13:50 AM
Hello craftsters! Every time I searched on tutorials and ideas crafsters always came up. They are sooo many awesome ideas on here, that I finally joined. My name is Kate! I do a lot of painting, almost anything that I can get my hands on. From primitive wood signs, mirrors, and recently mannequin heads. I really like primitive folk art, but I like mine with a more spooky creepy twist. Although I find a lot of prims to be creepy Smiley I want to try and start making some prim dolls, but have so many other projects to finish first. Halloween/Fall is my favorite time of the year, so the majority of my projects are centered around the spooktacular season.
Can't wait to start joining in on the conversations! So many new ideas to discover on this site, I better get started  Grin
