Day 11

 hello and welcome back! how's life been treating you? good i hope. here's the sweet and low down. as some of y'all know from last year, i grab what is close by, and i don't clean up after myself. so the frame stamp from stamp-it-crazy comes out again.
 when i first started this i painted the coffin purple, didn't like the purple so i went over it with black. several layers of black to cover the purple. then i decied to distress it. i wish i decied to distress it before putting 3 layers of black on it
a little hint, when you want to distress something, put only one layer of each paint color on it, it is easier to sand down and you get a better distress look. i'm going to put some goodies in here and give it too a friend. head on over to my sidebar and get to hopping! enjoy! lisa

It is stark raving fabulous! It may have been more work than you'd like, but the results are well worth it.

I know what you mean about never putting the stuff away - I use the same stuff over and over too. Your distressing turned out beautifully but that is to be expected since you used so much paint -snicker, snicker!!
