EEK!

Don't hate me for what I am about to say . . .  Modge Podge pisses me off.  Yeah, I really did just type those words.  I know, everyone uses it!!   It never seems to work the way that I want it to.  Maybe I don't use enough or using too little, not sure.  I went ahead and gave it a try with the pumpkin heads since it was a "small" Modge Podge project, and I was excited with the results.  

On to the EEK sign; Modge Podge was fabulous on the EEK letters.  I was impressed, so now I have love for Modge Podge.  The original plan was to Modge Podge the background papers of the sign onto a canvas and it totally didn't work . .  . everything got all caddywompus on me.  The background papers are just adhered with regular scrapping adhesives and hot glue.  All in all, I will give Modge Podge a try again, especially on the letters.

I have to admit, this turned out WAY better than what I had anticipated.  I purchased too many paper crafting supplies for my Halloween cards, thus the EEK sign being born.  It's going to look fabulous hanging at the office.

I love the bling you put on each letter! I think the whole thing turned out fabulous! It will be cute where ever it hangs. It took me a while to get used to mod podge, it drives me crazy when my paper bubbles, but it usually flattens out when it dries. I do like it tho. :)
