Globecraft & Piccolo - Welcome Bubble Frame

It's time for another project with Globecraft & Piccolo! Today's project is a Halloween themed home decor bubble frame inspired by Mary Howitt's poem The Spider and the Fly.

""Will you walk into my parlor?" said the Spider to the Fly."

This was a quick and easy project to put together! Choose some fun papers and embellishments, including the Fancy Labels & Roses Accents, Bling on a Roll and Oval Bubble Frame Kit. Supply links below.

Cut apart the Fancy Frame. Cover the Bubble Frame with the papers, the Fancy Label circle and Accents with Embossing Enamel Powders, glitter and 3D Gels. The circle behind the skull is a mix of Micro Black Embossing Enamel Powder and Pure Sparkle Silver Glitter.

The skull was a plastic ring. I cut off the ring part and used hot glue to adhere the skull to the circle. Cut 2 of the circles from the Bling on a Roll and glue into the eye sockets.

After embossing the wings, I used hot glue to attach the wings to the back of the circle not the frame.
Love the layers!

The dragonfly was covered in Mars Black 3D Gel and Pure Sparkle Silver Glitter was added before the gel dried.

 I only used 1 layer of Embossing Enamel Powder so that the surface would be textured like old wrought iron. Add a little eyelash yarn for more texture and fun...that's it!

Have some crafty fun this weekend!

Globecraft & Piccolo - Art Journal of Peculiar Events

Welcome to the first Friday of October!

Today I have another Halloween creation to share - this time an altered journal! Simple color scheme, themed Piccolo Accents and a bit of bling and patterned paper make this a quick project. See the bottom of this post for the supplies!

Love how easy it is to shape the Bling on a Roll to my project...and, of course, the sparkle...

 That shiny, glittery shape is a ghost!

What a great Halloween tree, right?! See the 'staining' on the Accents? Coat the shapes with Glastique and when it's almost dry, use a foam blender and Distress Ink over the piece. The areas that are not quite dry will absorb the ink! 

Make time to craft this weekend!

Globecraft & Piccolo - Halloween Pumpkins Altered Frame

Today I have a fun Halloween altered frame project. Need a bit of fall decor? This cute frame comes together in less than an hour...including dry time!

To make this frame, you'll need a few items from the G&P store:
Embossing Enamel Powder: Mossy Glen
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Mustard Seed

Other supplies:
misc. frame (this would be so cool in a Bubble Frame, too! Tune in next week - I actually use one!)
scrap of patterned paper
scrap of fuzzy fibers

Your first step: color the Accent pieces with the 3D gels. *Let dry.

*To add texture to the 'enameled' pieces: let dry until the pieces are tacky. Using a scrap piece of paper, gently dab the semi-wet surface, pulling off small amounts of the gel. Repeat until you like the texture. Let dry.

Using your finger (or a paintbrush) apply the Satin Gold 3D Gel to the raised parts of the frame. LOVE this subtle gilded look!

These carved pumpkins have hilarious faces! They would be even funnier with googley eyes!

When the frame and all of the pieces are dry, lay the house on the scrap piece, trace under the house. Ink up the area and emboss with Mossy Glen. 

Using a foam blender, add the moon using Mustard Seed. Attach all of the Accents and fiber using the Glastique.

That's it! 

Is it too early to start on Christmas cards?

Globecraft & Piccolo - Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful Mixed Media Card

 Welcome to the weekend! Are you looking forward to getting your crafty on?!

Today I have a mixed media card using embossing enamels and inks that results in fun and color!

To make this card, you will need a few items from the G&P shop:
Enamel Powder Adhesive Fluid
Embossing Enamel Powders: Girls Night OutMicro GoldVintage Silver
Art Stencil Fancy Flowers AS46003
Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Picked RaspberrySalty OceanSeedless PreservesShabby ShuttersSpiced MarmaladeSqueezed Lemonade

favorite stencil
spray bottle with water
stamps: Stampin' Up! Four Feathers and dies
sentiment stamp: 7Gypsies by Hampton Arts
watercolor paper
scraps of white cardstock and vellum cardstock
Tim Holtz Tiny Stapler

Let's get started!

If your stencil has a backside, flip it so the backside is facing up. (This is really important if you have numbers or letters that need to go a certain way.)

Dab the Distress Inks directly onto the stencil. I find it's better to start with the light colors, moving up to the darker ones. No rush here.

When you like the distribution of color, spritz with water, flip over onto the watercolor paper. Use a couple of napkins or a papertowel to press and dab the stencil. This prevents the water from pooling into open areas of your stencil.

This technique has varying results depending upon the amount of water you use. Do you want muted or defined?

I am so in love with feathers on cards!

Stamp your sentiment on the vellum and use the top photo for placement. That's it!

What will you make this weekend?

Inky hugs,
