Halloween Hand Wall - Genuinely Jane Studios / Linnie Blooms Blog Hop

Welcome to the Genuinely Jane Studios (GJS) and Linnie Blooms Blog Hop! If you came from Pinky then you are in the right place. If not, and you would like to start at the beginning, please head over to the Linnie Blooms Blog.

The Hop will start today and last until 11:59 PM EST on Frieday the 11th.

Each of ladies, on both companies Design Teams, were asked to design an individual project using a wood album from GJS and our choice of products from Linnie Blooms. Here is my project:

Halloween Hand Wall
I decided to add to my Halloween decorations by making a Hand Wall. This idea has been rolling around in my head for a while, so I am so happy to have finally done it.

This is the entry wall of my house, just as you walk in the door. These frames hang here year round, with my kids pictures in them. I just decorated an 8x10 sheet of scrapbook paper and hung it in the frames instead of the pictures.

Supplies I used:
*** I used 3 of the 4 pages of the book on three seperate frames. Two are covered in scrapbook paper and the front window one was painted black.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Black Soot
8 Jewelry Hands (Bought at Michael's using coupons)
Ribbon
Gorilla Glue Super Glue
6 - 8x10 Non-Glare .5 Acrylic sheets
*** I bought these at Home Depot to put in the frames so I could glue the hands directly to them. I did not want to glue to the glass because I use these frames for my kids pictures other times of the year. I did try just using acrylic from the scrapbook store, but it did not adhere well and we had a hand fall off and shatter. At the end of the season, we will dismantle these and store them until next year, oh ya, and the kids pics will go back up.

















I absolutely LOVE IT!!!! My family thinks I am a bit nutso, but that is nothing new.
