Graphic 45 Want2Scrap and Art Glitter Blog Hop

Hey there Graphic 45 fans! One of the perks to being on a Design Team is getting goodies from partner companies to create with. This month I got amazing products from two companies. Want2Scrap and Art Glitter. All I can say is when I opened the Art Glitter box the colors just screamed Halloween, so I whipped out my Happy Hauntings paper from G45. And the Want2Scrap goodies I have been using all along... and I used one of my new favorite techniques-altering rhinestones with alcohol ink! So here is my Halloween Art Terrarium. This project is so cute for Halloween decor, but it's challenging to photograph! So I hope you get the "feel" for it!
{this is a plastic dome display that is 4x6 inch. I started by glittering the base with Art Glitters Dazzlers in Aphrodite Hexis }

{I then took some 3/4 inch black foam core to make a base-then trimmed that base with Graphic 45's Happy Hauntings paper. I then fussy cut out some of the other images from the paper line-attached them to wood skewers and inserted into the foam base}

For the outside I used Want2Scrap Silver Rhinestone Swirls- but wait! Those aren't silver! No problem just dab a little Ranger Alcohol ink in eggplant and you have instant purple rhinestones!}

{I had this broken vintage porcelaine figurine, I knew I wanted to save her for something!}

I also used a G45 chipboard clock-a vintage key- it's a great medium for displaying some of your unique found objects that might be too bulky or heavy to add to a paper project}

{here is a vintage watch part bottle I converted into a witches brew ingredient, and a lovely vintage purple clip on purple pearl earring}

{another angle}

{I also made this spooky hat pin from a skull bead and two vintage beads salvaged off some broken jewelry- just glue them on a pin and insert into your foam base}

{I love this bewitching beauty for G45! I glittered her up with Art Glitter in Copper Harbor}

{way in the back is my man in the moon cut from G45 and Glittered with Art Glitters Wildwood- this is an amazing mix of silver, lavender and orange glitter- gorgeous!}

{Finished it off with a distressed organza ribbon you can see my tutorial here on how I get this effect:

Clearsnap Heat Emboss and Distress Ribbon from Denise Hahn on Vimeo.


{I cant wait until fall when I can start putting out all of my halloween decor!}

{here is a pic of the inside with the globe off}

{this is the globe off the base-you can see the detail a little better}

  143. Denise, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! The fussy cut bits you put on skewers -- is there a backing to them or did you leave it plain? (I'm seriously considering making one of these!) Oh, and the grinning moon -- is he adhered inside the glass? What appears on the outside? Just the back of the patterned paper?
