Dylusions Meets Halloween!

 Hello Everybody!

Well, I'm getting ready to go on vacation this weekend.  Back to my favorite place to go and recharge...The Atlantic Coast!!  The bags are not packed nor the clothes washed...but the reservations have been made...That's a start!  .LOL!  So what have I been doing instead of getting organized?  Well... playing with the Dylusion stamps and spray inks again!  I can't help it I say!  Since this vacation consists of a few days taking some classes in Florida with the Queen Dylusionist herself, Dyan Reaveley, I've been practicing!  LOL!  That's the way I like to think about it....It's justified right?  Those bags will pack themselves soon enough!

Like I said I've been having a blast getting all inky while watching many of her tutorials on YouTube.  I came across this little ditty!  I about laughed myself into a heart attack!  You may have seen it, but it's worth looking at again!  Check this out....

So, I've been seeing how I can get these bright and happy stamps and sprays inks to do Halloween!  It wasn't hard and I had so much fun trying!  Here's what I can up with so far...Still have a few on the craft table to finish up but here's a couple for now.  One dark and devilish and one...feathery fun funkalicious!  Hope you think their groovy....

    1. I did Shari! That is soooooo cooool! Here's the deal...Accidentally go into his house and accidentally grab a figure and send it to me! See that's easy! LOL! No that is so cool! Joe Spencer was picked up by Gallerie II/C&F Enterprises. A line we sell in our shops. That's how I knew about him and started to collect his awesomeness! Such a small world really! How cool! Thanks again Shari!

  6. Jim,
    I am loving what you did with Miss Dy's wonderful sprays! I am just coming off a 5-day wonder cruise with Dyan at the helm! You see I live in Kansas and Dyan was here with us for 5 wonderful days! I took as many classes as I could and may I say, you are gonna LOVE being in her classes!
    I know she will be (and is already) impressed with your work, as we all are. I like the spin you put on using her stamps as masks! Very clever! Loved the bus too! So cute and seventies retro!
    But back to Dyan's classes...we had so much fun so I am putting a link to my blog so you can see what she was up to before you got her! And please know that I admire your work and you so very much! I have been a fan since I first saw your Robot Man a year or so ago on Tim's Blog. You are a true inspiration to us all!
