CRUMBLE IT with Smudgy Antics!

A fortnight has passed and it is time for another challenge with Smudgy Antics.

The theme for this two week period of creativity is


Here is the definition of crumble (verb):

  1. disintegrate, collapse, break up, deteriorate, decay, fall apart, perish, degenerate, decompose, tumble down, go to pieces
  2. crush, fragment, crumb, pulverize, pound, grind, powder, granulate, go to wrack and ruin, break down

The word crumble sounds pretty destructive, doesn’t it?  We at Smudgy Antics challenge you to crumble your project in some fashion this fortnight.  If it is not evident as to how you have crumbled your project, please describe your crumbling technique in your post.  Don’t forget to use a stamped image (real or digi) in your projects.

Here is my DT project:


I have created a piece to pay homage to the Black Widow Spider Totem!

Since the theme is “Crumble it” I used a piece of brown packing paper and kept crumbling it up to  put all of the creases in it. I stapled part of the sack down and used glue dots to adhere the rest of the sack. I used my craft knife and made a slit for the tiny punched out red spiders to be crawling in and out of. The tiny red spiders are a punch I picked up at the Dollar bin at Micheal’s.

I have used digi stamp “Black Widow Spider” and “Tarantula” both from Smeared Ink. (Follow the links to get yours.)

I added a crown to her head and the Silver Glimmer paper from Stampin’ Up! I have colored my images with Copics. The grey stuff is fabric mesh.

I typed the sentiment out on my compy and printed this is what is says:

The Black Widow Spider is the High Priestess, the Dark Mother, weaving new fates for those who cross her path. Her magic and power are great, making her dangerous. She signals an awakening of our creative energies. Spiders reflect the magic of assertion, reminding us that only by asserting and expressing our creative energies are we empowered. – Ted Andrews

I got this quote from my book by Ted Andrews called “Animal Wise” (Follow the link if you would like to see it.)

Thank you for your visit, thank you for your comments! Would love to know what you think of my project! Stay crafty my friends!
