Feed Me, Seymour,

Feed me all night long
That’s right, boy!
You can do it!
Feed me, Seymour
Feed me all night long
‘Cause if you feed me, Seymour
I can grow up big and strong!

Remember these lyrics? If you do, you’ve definitely seen the Musical “Little Shop of Horrors” starring Rick Moranis, Steve Martin and Bill Murray. By far one of my favorite Musicals 😀

So you can imagine when I saw the awesome creation of Audrey II by Jan Hunter – I just had to scrap lift it and Sandy of Simply Crafty Svgs made it very easy.

Presenting: Audrey II (Venus Flytrap SVG File):

I had so much fun making the murderous little plant. I used AC Cardstock and patterned paper from DCWV Stacks Curiosities and Ghost Stories.

The leaves and the tongue are embossed with Embossing folder from Crafters Companion and Sizzix and all edges plus teeth and embossing are inked with Distress Ink in matching colors.

The plant sign is from American Crafts and I used vinyl for the text….it even has the bloody fingerprint from Seymour 😮

Finally I filled in some Spanish Moss in the pot and ….TA DAAAA…..Two-y was born (again)

This might be my only Halloween decor this year…let’s see if I have time to make some more and find the space for it.

I’ve seen several Audrey’s made lately – all look fantastic ❤

Thanks for joining me today….I think I’ll take some off from my chores and watch “Little Shop of Horrors” for the 50th time 😀

 

Lighthouse Island

Today I want to share a little project I made for my living room.

Lately I’ve been downsizing practically everything I make, due to lack of storage space but also for the fun and challenge of working with something so small.

This time I wanted to make the Lighthouse and the Lighthouse Keeper’s Quarters from the Seaside kit by SVGCuts in 50% of the originals. I also wanted to make the cute little rowboat (minus the box) from the Picnic In The Park kit.

So I began and things just evolved…….

The Lighthouse:

This is made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Gold Fish and decorated with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s Sunkissed Collection.

I embossed the middle panels with a Cottage stone-patterned embossing folder from Crafters Companion and tied a hemp cord around the base.

I also added some Prima flowers in matching colors and a tiny seahorse bead.

On top I added a ball chain with small metal sea shells and inside the tower I put a tiny LED light (not so visible in daylight but powerful at night). I also added a LED light inside the Lighthouse.

The Lighthouse Keeper’s Quarters:

This tiny house is made from AC Cardstock in Denim, Ocean, Vanilla and Carrot and decorated with Graphic 45 “Sunkissed”.

The door is embossed with a woodgrain-patterned embossing folder from Crafters Companion and the door knob is a small green enamel dot from my stash. I also added three other dots on the roof for a little fun effect.

The roof is embossed with a fish scale embossing folder – seriously can’t remember from where I got it – sorry! :-/

I wanted to make a small stone path down to the dock so I used some small plastic pellets and glued them onto the base.

I also decorated with a tiny metal key, a small starfish and a metal flower – all from my pretty large stash.

Here’s view from above – just look at that cool roof!

The Rowboat:

This one I made in 33% of the original so it’s very tiny!

I used AC Cardstock in Ocean, Denim, Carrot and Vanilla and decorated with “Sunkissed” paper.

I also found a tiny metal lantern for the boat so it can be seen in the dark 😉

The Anchor is made from Bazzill Bling Cardstock in Tungsten and I glued 6 pieces together to make it look heavy and sturdy.

Finally I made a path from the Lighthouse to the Quarters by gluing some Frosted Mica flakes from Finnabair onto the base.

I also decorated with more Prima flowers, a Compass from Ideaology and a few trinkets.

And here’s the entire project in one picture:

I got the cliff base from a Iglo file from Creatieve Papier Uitspattigen and I think it works just fine even though it’s meant to be an ice shelf.

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Charcoal, Concrete and Leaf and is kept in the original size.

If I was to make it again, I would design some small support boxes to put inside each box as it tends to sink a bit in the middle.

My vision: ……..LOL 😀

(the video is made on my phone with a special app – the light in the top of the Lighthouse does unfortunately not spin like that. It’s only a special effect)

Well – what do you think? Please tell me in a comment below 🙂

Thank you so much for visiting me today ❤
