“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes…”
During a recent long weekend spent with several of my Swirly Sisters in North Carolina, our gracious hosts, Maggi and her husband took us all on a Sunday drive/ photo shoot through their (new to us) tobacco country, stopping at every scream and squeal as we spotted perfect scenes, buildings and objects to photograph.
When Rae announced her Jeepers CREEPers SGC challenge, I went through my “Maggi Camp” photos, knowing that I’d find the perfect image and I was right. I uploaded into PSE and started tweaking it with Florabella actions, a little of this and a little of that, in the spirit of eye of newt and toe of frog.
This was the perfect opportunity to play with some of my new toys: the Crafters’ Workshop Branches template and the new Tim Holtz seasonal ink pads.
The paper, cardstock and large flower (torn apart, layered and centered with a Prima rosebud) are from the gorgeous September kit from Swirlydoos. The Petaloo vine is from an earlier kit. The appropriate matting is burlap from Maggi: she bought a ginormous roll from Home Depot and generously told us all to take as much as we want.
I’ll be buying a black shadowbox over the weekend to frame this, but I wanted to display it here now with many thanks to Rae for the inspiration; this was a lot of fun!!!!
