day 19 of S&S 31 days with Rick St Dennis

Not only is Rick St Dennis one of the awesome sponsors of the Smeared and Smudged 31 days of Hallowe'en, it is also challenge #2 for his new challenge blog, Sparkle and Glitter: The Rick St Dennis Challenge Blog.

The rules and details of all the fabulous sponsors that have generously donated prizes for the 31 day hop can be found on Terra's Blog and of course on the Smeared and Smudged forum.

I happen to be a lucky part of Rick's fabulously talented team. Lucky because, for some unknown reason he liked some of my work :)
It's as part of my 31 projects I bring you this 31 days, my DT piece for this new challenge for day 19.

I made a mobile. It's hanging in my hallway from the stair post. Sorry about the poor quality pics - try as I might, the mobile wouldn't stay still for photos.

The main part is the Haunted House. Printed 4 times and spritzed with 3 different mica sprays, after masking off the moon, for the shine and I hoped to give the look of various apparitions that surround the dwelling. The moon was painted with glow in the dark paint. It's a shame a pic won't take, the eerie green light is something else!!. Hanging from my house are 5 images, I had hoped to put up more, but I ran out of time. I printed out each image twice and flipped one to form the sandwich. These images are also painted with that glow in the dark paint on one of the sides printed out. The other is coloured with promarkers.
The images used were
I was "sensible" for once and took pics before assembling. Each image has a length of nylon jewellery thread stuck between the coloured layer and the GITD layer. This was used to suspend from the haunted house and also so that I could attach little mirror pieces. This not only reflects any light but acts as a weight for the images.

If you are on your way round on the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Hallowe'en hop you will have been past Valerie and now be on your way to Sharon. The blog list is still there on the right in the side bar.

If you are here from the Sparkle and Glitter Challenge blog why not have a wander round those blogs for some added inspiration. Looking forward to seeing everyone's projects.

See you tomorrow
