...On A Pumpkin?...Really!

Yep! It is that time of year for decorating pumpkins, and I thought, hey, I wonder...would Fantastic Glaze & Glue work on a pumpkin? So I thought I would give it a try!
 
Here is what I started with...and yes that is a real pumpkin, some fun Halloween pieces from Michaels and of course Fantastic Glaze & Glue and the new larger Mini Rounds Glass Bling!


So I started first with the eyes. Now when I purchased these googly eyes i didn't realize it was one piece, and as I bought the pumpkin seperately, these eyes could possibly have been a bit smaller. So when I used the Fantastic Glaze & Glue on them and they are a bit thick and not rounded in any way I used masking tape to hold them in place while the glue dries. It does take a bit of time for this to dry and I am not a patient person.

Ok, next came the nose and mouth so I decided to use the large bling. I just put the Fantastic Glaze & Glue on then positioned the bling on for the nose and mouth, and again, definitely give a bit of dry time. And then for that shredded paper fun stuff I just put more of the Fantastic Glaze & Glue on the top and added the "hair". I then used some more Fantastic Glaze & Glue on top of the hair and added a purple fabric hair bow!
 
And here you have my finished pumpkin! What do you think?

As always I would love to hear what you think of this project and if you have questions always ask!
 
Hugs,
 
Judy

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #139-Kath's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Welcome to the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge! It is all about FeminineAnything Goes! So I wanted to do something this week with some technique playing! Here is what I came up with. The image is from a stamp set by Kraftin Kimmie called Fancy Florals and was stamped with black archival ink on watercolor paper, then colored with Zig Clean Color Markers. Now the background behind it was made using a Dyan Reaveley Triangles Stencil, Tonic Studios-Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and Holographic Glitter Embossing Powder. I applied the mousse through the stencil and while the mousse was still wet, coated it with the embossing powder and used my heat tool and the dimensionality and sparkle in person are awesome!
