Sizzling Summer Blog Hop

Welcome to the last day of the Scrapadabadoo Blog hop! You should have come here from Zandra’s Blog.  If you are coming here first you should really go back to the beginning at Scrapadabadoo’s blog and start from there to play along!!

 

Isn’t it wonderful what everyone has done with their Prima Bikes so far? I am just floored with everyone’s creativity!

 

I am a card maker, most of you know that… so this is so far out of my comfort zone, Barrie and Carol really threw me for a loop with this one.

 

My mind works in different ways (go figure!), when it comes to me “altering” or decorating something my mind goes to one place… Halloween (yes, YES! I know it’s summer and I am a few months early but that is okay… right?) When I decorate for Halloween I always think like overgrown house in the middle of forest, and that is how I decorate my house at that time of the year… so I ran with it… pretty with some twisted and creepy things thrown in.

So it all started with me spray painting the bike with Krylon Colormaster paint and primer in one in the colour Blue Ocean Breeze, after a couple coats of that and letting it dry I was ready to have some fun… I picked myself up a bag of Spanish moss from Dollarama (Canadian dollar store) and covered the bike in it.. giving it that over grown feel. I then took some “Creepy cloth” out of my halloween decorations and cut myself off a chunk. The cloth is like a heavy cheese cloth with large holes in it, I draped that over the front end of the bike.

I used Wild Orchid Craft Flowers, the store has plenty of options, but the ones I used were from my stash and are Dove Grey Cottage Roses 1 1/4″ (FM-00208), Walnut Cottage Roses 1 1/4″ (FM-00113), Ivory Trellis Roses 1 1/2″ (FM-00382).

I then added some of my fun Halloween little decorations, can you spot the Scorpion?
