Over at Smudgy Antics, the current challenge is Monster Mash and at Sparkle and Glitter The Rick St. Dennis Challenge Blog the theme is Sweet or Spooky Hallowe'en. I decided to do a little something different for me and brew up some Eye-lixxxor. It will cure any vision problems in as little as one pint!
Print one Rick St. Dennis image
Color with copics, spica pens-making him a Mash of yellow, taupe, and green with purple and bloody talons and teeth. And he needs some Visine pronto.
Print label and adhere to jar.
Fussy-cut Monsta so he takes a starring role while murmuring about the wisdom of picking such a detailed image with multiple appendages.
Brew the eye-lixxxor. Top Secret Recipe. (iced tea and generic blue mouthwash)
Eyeballs from probably deceased monsters must be included, or it won't work. Tip: Casually tell your supervisor at work that why yes, you do NEED something at the Dollarama when she offers to pick you up something on her lunch break, and try to explain why you NEED a package of eyeballs while trying to maintain a serious manner.
Paint lid of jar with nail polish because you can. Curse (optional but encouraged) when you forget it's probably still wet and take it off to position an eyeball and place it upside down and get it stuck to your bathroom counter. Decide the bumps give it character and move on. Clean up red-dotted counter.
Assemble while singing Monster Mash loudly and slightly off-key. Just slightly.
(oh and assure your husband that the jar will NOT permanently remain on the bathroom counter, but you need to let it all dry and be safe from being knocked over- after all, crafting is serious business and really, he needs to not be such a wuss about a few floating eye balls and one left on the counter- because seriously, we have watched every episode of Criminal Minds, and I am sure they had eyeballs on there at some point, and I doubt that Shemar Moore whined about eyeballs. )
