Happy Halloween!

I can't believe this is the last October post and final Halloween project!

I bought some Studio 490 modeling film and did my first experiment with it.  I made a jar with the clear film.  The great thing about this stuff is that if you don't like how it looks when you heat and mold it, you can reheat it and change its shape.  This being my first go at it, I worked at making the jar convex yet have the edges flat for gluing.

The jar stamp is from Sarasota Stamps out of Florida.  I picked it up at a craft fair when I was in Florida last February.  It might be hard to tell in the photo, but the Jolee's 3-D candy corn gems are under the clear film, just as if they were "in a jar". 

And there's a glittery spider hanging from the baker's twine.

The purple behind the jar and the flourish paper are Fancy Pants Oct. 31. The label is Echo Park Apothecary Emporium. All papers are from the Flying Unicorn on-line store.
