We aren't the same

Hurricane Irene really did New Jersey in, so sorry this post is late... Today's post is for my Retro Cafe Art DT project. I'm beginning to get in the mood for Halloween, so you will start to see projects with that theme. Halloween is my favorite holiday and based on my wardrobe black is my favorite color. LOL.

Well, I started with this  embossed rusty tin ceiling tile from RCA and stamped a spider web using an Inkidinkado stamp. I layered a Dezinaworld image that I printed on a transparency. The embellishments are black ribbon roses, paper confetti flowers and lots of Stickles. On my striking female is a tiny cut out bat from RCA too. At Retro cafe art there are so many cool Halloween frames and cut outs. The final touch was some lace and the sentiment "We aren't the same.

Hope you'll try to be someone different this week, just for fun.
take care, gerri
"We aren't the same."


  1. Fabulous Gerri. Halloween is not something we really celebrate but I love making some of the darker projects - in fact I have one in the making at the moment (but won't be seen till October). This is so original with the bat on the image.
    luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

  2. Just gorgeous Gerri. Halloween is such fun.

  3. Fabulously haunting.
    There is nothing I don't love about this. I usually don't get terribly excited about Hallowe'en projects but this captures the imagination so much.
    June's image as a transparency is a brilliant touch.
    Love the bat.

  4. OMG, this is brilliant! I want one! LOL Wonderful piece of art here!

  5. Very cool piece Gerri! But mainly I'm just happy you and your family our safe! About a year ago we were out of power for 4 days after a bunch of tornados in the area. I know how terrible it is. Hang in there - sounds like the worst is over!! xoxo
