"A Haunting We Will Go" Blog Hop


Welcome! to the I Am Roses "A Haunting We Will Go" Blog Hop.
If you are hopping along that means you just arrived here from Leanne's blog also know as Luvleescrappin.
Thanks for joining our October Blog Hop!

For this blog hop I created a Home Decor Halloween center piece. 


"Witch Parking, Violators will be TOAD!"

I wanted to create something fun, colorful and whimsical to place on my dining room table. I found most of my materials at my local Target shopping center in the dollar bins. Items purchased at target include: 3 small witches brooms and a small vertical tin pail. 
This project was super easy to create. To start, I placed a piece of foam inside the tin pail and stuck my 3 brooms into place. I added twine around the bottoms of each broom along with bead sprays and of course I Am Roses flowers. I used a variety of flowers from I Am Roses and I love how beautiful they all look placed on the brooms. I sprayed all my I Am Roses flowers with Scintillating Silver from Lindystampgang.com. I love how sparkly they look! I also sprayed one white R40 I am Roses flower green by using Luscious Lime from Lindystampgang.com

I Am Roses Flowers used include:
R40: White Roses & T30: Semi Open Rose Buds

GB5: Mixed Color Gardenia Paper Flowers


R40: Pink Roses & T30: Semi Open Rose Buds 

I also created the bottom half of a witch that included her two legs and the trim of her dress.  My thought behind the witch legs was that the witch was coming to park her broom and she was flying way to fast and landed in the parking zone! LOL! I just love how fun and whimsical adding this element to my center piece made it look.


On the dress I used S10: sm purple flowers 2 tone.

Here is a closer look at the sign on my center piece.
Items used to create this include: Hocus Pocus Sophie digi image from Sweetnothingstampco.com, die cut shape,front and toad were created using my Cricut Gypsy. Small white tag was punched from a punch and the journaling was printed from my computer.

  40. Violaters will be toad, how cute. HaHa Ha. The witches feet upside down in this project, I almost missed. Loved your technqiue video. Did not know I could reapply color & continue to keep blending. Tip for stump, use a small spunge in the cap of bottle to make sure blending stump does not get too wet. Great coloring technique will watch video again. Thanks for your blog.
