Still waiting for surgery.

It has been over a year since I last posted. I have been waiting for the VA to do surgery on my left hand, wrist and elbow. It has kept me from doing any artwork to speak of. I can only work on something a little at a time. I am very bummed out over it too. I will be back after I have healed up from my surgery (whenever that will be).
BTW I got my Kindle for Christmas.

Project #7 - Black Cloth Wreath

This cloth wreath was very easy to make. It took about 1 yard of black broadcloth, an old wire coat hanger (Do they still make these?) that I bought at a thrift store, 3 mummy balls (see I told you they would make another appearance), 1 skull flower pin, 1 felt spider (with his own web) and a felt pumpkin patch. Tools used: wire cutters (heavy duty enough to cut the coat hanger wire), scissors, ruler, hot glue and glue gun.

Project #6 - Skull Flowers


The large black flower and the red one are both hair clips. The smaller black one and the purple skull flower are pins.
Recipe:
Bag of Skulls from Dollar Store
The large black flower is a BlingaGe hair clip by teresa collins that I took apart. I removed the large rhinestone, and added black tulle that I gathered into a circle on the back, (tulle is from Hobby Lobby).  The trim around the skull is from Misty Busby's online store "MB Treasurista", and has been dyed black with Black Soot Distress Ink.
The red hair clip is a "gimme clips" by Bella Blossoms and is called Fruit Punch.
The small black flower and the purple one were dyed with Black Soot and Seedless Preserves (which is from the Autumn 2011 Seasonal Series) Distress Inks. Both were originally Pastel Flowers from Hot Off The Press.

#5 - Dead Branches and Skulls Wreath

This looks a lot better in person. It was hard to photograph where it was hanging.
I call it Dead Branches because I have sprayed the branches with Flat Black primer, and it looks like they are old, dead branches.


Recipe
5 Black Roses from IAMROSES
3 skulls from Bag of Skulls from Dollar Store
spiderweb like stuff with spiders from JoAnn Best Buys a few years ago
wreath is from Hobby Lobby and has been sprayed with Flat Black Primer 3X
ribbon is from a ribbon grab bag that I bought a few years ago from JoAnn sales bin

Halloween Project #4

This adorable trio of "Mummy Balls" were so much fun to make. They can be used to fill a bowl or as Halloween ornaments. I am sure they are going to show up again in some other decoration this month.
