31 Days of Halloween - Day 30

Almost done, nooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!  Alex couldn't let it end without at least one more tag.  Even better, she found a challenge and tried a new technique!!!

This is done with a technique from Tim Holtz (Alex says he is THE MAN, but whatever, I just think he is some dude who likes to get inky too and she REALLY wants his play room ).  The technique is called "Perfect Distress" and you can see Tim Holtz demonstrate it here

Much to her dismay, Alex realized that she did not own any Perfect Pearls. GASP! I KNOW!!!  Fortunately she has some pretty amazing friends who do and let her use them. 

This tag is all about the technique and the bats. Alex just knew the bats would look great all shimmery. They really do. Here is a better picture of the shimmer.

I know, even I have to admit it is pretty fabulous. The other thing is that the shimmer is not rubbing off so my feathers, and dignity, are safe!

Edgar, please tell Alex that she did a magnificent job on her Grungy Monday piece, and that her use of color and imagery is sensational! I'm so happy to know that the two of you are my neighbors in Boise, and I look forward to seeing lots more of Alex's art.


P.S. My cats find you fascinating. ;-)
