Art Glitter’s retail showroom is located in Historic Old Town Cottonwood, Arizona.

Now for a little inspiration!


For my project, I decided to play with Graphic 45's fun and wonderful Happy Haunting line with a mix of An ABC Primer to create a little Handmade Halloween Decor.


Lately I have been seeing more and more of these.  This is an Art Block measuring 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". 
Just a nice 1/2" thick piece of wood decorated for the wall or to set around.


Halloween is my favorite time of the year, so you can imagine how excited I was to see Graphic 45 release the Happy Haunting line!!   With so many tiny little elements that can be cut out and used in so many ways, like this Halloween banner, or the checker boarder!!
LOVE!!


The Art Glitter made the perfect accent that tied the entire block together.  Used as a border around the outside edge.  Also, it was great for converting a plain metal star, into a Bright and Shiny orange star. 
But my favorite of all was the purple chunky glitter used around the outside of the rosette.


Even had these little fun chipboard gears created from Imaginarium Designs that were the perfect addiction!!


And don't forget the addition of some amazing Want 2 Scrap Flourishes.  These are great for so many things used as is, or cut them up to make them really stretch far!


And the whole thing finished off with a cute pumpkin center!! 

That's it for today, thanks for stopping by and joining in the HOP!!
Don't forget to join in the fun all week long, and leave your comments along the way for a chance to win some wonderful prizes!!

Here is the schedule for today and the rest of the week!!
Happy Hopping!!

Monday, July 23rd

Over here we start to dress up like Halloween and ehre and there the kids go out to ask for trick or teat, so cute!
I really enjoyed your Art Block, so fun and with tons of bling and glitter.
