Another Something to Crow About

I had several extra crows from the Dollar Tree hangin' out just beggin' to be decorated.  So, I got busy and gussied up another little something to crow about.  I mentioned earlier in a post that I was totally intrigued by the crow pictured in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I had to copy it which I did several times.  Well, the other day I was inspired to make another crow and use up some leftover papers from last year called Dark and Dreary.  The DSP collections from 2010 were as amazing as this years patterns.

I know, I know I am getting a bit wack-o about glitter, but I do have a tip for you.  I always seem to want to add a few bits of bling after I have glittered my project and they never stick.  So, add any rhinestones or pearls first before you glitter.  And just as a reminder I like to spray cheap hair spray, then sprinkle the glitter, and then add another light coat of hair spray.  My friends and I call it the "spray sprinkle spray" method.

Now it's time to check out Shirley's Monday Monster Mash Halloween Count Down for this week.  The big day is drawing near!  Can't wait for Halloween.  I am going to watch scary movies and eat lots of goodies AKA crap.
