Design Team: Denise O'Connor Week 6

Denise O'Connor's Frankenstein 

Happy Monday eCrafters! Another week and we are closer to Halloween! Time is flying!!! Today, we have an adorable tutorial from Denise O'Connor. She will use the amazing Square 1 material to dress up your light switch! See the tutorial below:

It’s Monday again, and that means another eCraft Design Team Project! This week the Design Team was tasked with making some Halloween Home D├ęcor using the wonderful Square 1! When I saw the Cut-Its Set from Lettering Delights called Monster Lights, I knew exactly what I wanted to do!

Spooky huh? I used the Print & Cut Hinge Method to cut this entire design out of one piece of Square 1 by printing blocks of colors and textures with Make the Cut.
I cut these out using a pressure of 2 1/2 to get a great kiss cut on the pieces. I did not cut out the end pieces on the bolts because I wanted to experiment with using Perfect Pearls on Square 1.

 To start with I mixed a little Pewter colored Perfect Pearls with some water on my non-stick craft mat.

I then masked off the end bolt with a post it note and painted my Perfect Pearls on.

Here they are all painted on! Love that shimmer!

I used my Copic Multiliner to color in the pupils and make him a little bit silly! The Perfect Pearls worked well, but I think it would work better if the Square 1 was not printed already. I did have a little flaking on this after my son was playing with it, so this may also not be great on something like this which will come in contact with little fingers.
One of the things that I just love about Square 1 is that it is removable, so that means when Halloween is over, I can peel this off the light fixture and place it back on the backing paper and save it for next year!
Since this is my last Design Team project using Square 1, I just have to say that I LOVE this stuff! I will definitely be using it again in the future, and it is now a new staple in my craft room. My oldest son is also enjoying that his mommy can make any kind of stickers that he wants. I actually have to limit him on this, because the requests have just gone crazy! If you have not ordered some Square 1, be sure to do it!
Debi, Lisa and Raven will be sharing some more Square 1 projects with you this week, so make sure that you are following us, and then next week we will have a new fabulous sponsor that you will not want to miss! Have a great week everybody!
