Cute (&) Spooky Blog Hop Day Four ~ Norma Gomez, Little Honey Bee Studios

Switching things up today with a little altered art! Today's guest designer is my wickedly talented friend, Norma Gomez from Lil HoneyBee Studios.

Hello, hello, today I'm honored to help my scrappy friend Kimberly celebrate the 1-year anniversary of her Etsy Shop, Polka Dotted Bliss. She has a spookalicious line-up of talented girls sharing polka-dot Halloween creations all week long on her blog! AND, she's giving away some blog candy each and every day this week.

So do you follow me on Facebook? Well if you do then you saw me posting a couple of interesting items like a smashed Altoids tin and some Tinker toys. All of these items were for this project. So are you ready to see what I did with them?!!! Tada!!.

 "Come a little closer, I have a story to tell", she beckons from her trailer.....
I had so much fun making this piece and even channeled my own gypsy soul ;D.  I started out with a small box that I covered with polka dot paper and paisley fabric. Then I hung sequenced and beaded trim from the top. My beautiful gypsy is a clipart image from my stash.
 This is the smashed Altoids tin I found. I layered a Recollections foil frame on top of it and an eye die cut.

I covered the front with vintage fabric and then embellished the sides with flowers and bling.

A spider makes his way over the flowing ribbons and flowers.

Inside, I added a Prima door, book of spells, roses, skulls and K&Company potion bottles. They create the perfect scene for this gorgeous gypsy.

I painted the Tinker toys and sprayed them with Lindy's ink to turn them into wheels :D. I absolutely LOVE the way this turned out!! I think this one is going on display here in my office. I hope you love it too!
