31 Days of Halloween - Day 2

Hi there!!!  I certainly hope you enjoyed yesterday and all the yummy goodness everyone had to offer for your viewing pleasure.

Some of you may know that Alex really enjoys creating tags this time of year.  Well, she has added a second item to that list of fun things.  Puzzle pieces!  -don't ask me, the lady is crazy and does not listen to what I say.....



Now, Alex tells me that this is a good thing and I will be amazed and love it when she is done.  She has an entire puzzle she is converting from a picture of The Wiggles (oh thank goodness....) to a collective of Halloween things.  After they are all altered her plan is to put the puzzle back together and hang it up.  Now, I am not sure she will do that (so many variables here, including finishing all the pieces and, after all, I have hung out with this chick enough to know that finished projects often elude her) but that is the idea.





This piece she covered with some patterned paper then stamped this image with Staz-On ink.  She then used distress ink and a water brush to add some color. 

Ok, ok, I guess this looks pretty all right.  I am withholding an opinion on the entire idea though until it is finished.  You can all decide with me when it is done.... don't worry, you probably have 20 years of so.





Remember that all the other Wicked Bloggers for the 31 Days of Halloween are listed on the side bar of this blog to the right.  If you have any questions on how this all works, including prizes, be certain and check out Terra's blog here.

Also, you still have time to enter for the blog candy and grab the free digi from the SCACD Digi Day at the store blog here.

Happy Halloween!
Edgar

Hi Edgar, loving the idea of the puzzle pieces, I think they are going to look fantastic when everything is completed... even just the one alone looks good... I think you are very photogenic, very sleek feathers..
