Jeanette's Color Me Monday Combo

Jeanette Lynton, President and CEO of Close To My Heart has a weekly blog that she does and often inspires me to make something using her Color Combos that she provides every week. This week the combo was a non-traditional one for Halloween that I LOVE! I wanted to share with you a project that Jeanette created and I copied, although I changed a few things. If you want to see more of Jeanette's weekly postings on the right side of my blog you will see a list of Blogs that I follow. Just follow the link to Jeanette's work, you won't be disappointed.

These are some dollar bin stamps that me and my girlfriend Amy found at Michael's. I am pretty much an acrylic stamping kind of girl, but for a dollar? I couldn't resist and the stamps actually gave clean images the first time I used them. Be sure and check them out. This is another creative way to keep stamping in a tight economy.

Here I used some chipboard letters from CTMH and wrapped the "O" in embroidery floss in black. I drew some of the web on the letter and then sponged the letters in black ink to give them a shadowy kind of look. The dollar store stamps went well with my letters. I love the happy little spider hanging off the web.

Here is the finished layout. I am using mine as a Halloween door hanging but you can use it as a layout in a scrapbook as well. Just add a few pictures to the squares and Viola'! Hope you enjoy this project and thank you for being patient with me about posting my artwork. I think my MoJo is coming back.
