Wicked Wednesdays & JSL Reminders, Smudgy Antics & Beyond the Burtonesque

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Oh my gosh - what a week it's been.  I'm feeling very emotional and stressed out this week - I miss my husband and I miss Trevor.  I am looking forward to visiting with them on April vacation, but I really, really, really just can't wait to move out to California and join them.  June cannot come fast enough.

Anyway, we have a reminder post for you over at:

Check out the challenge blog for details and to link up with us!

We also have a reminder post for you up at:

Just Some Lines - Spring Cleaning
My next creation is for the:
Smudgy Antics Challenge - Alter It
Beyond the Burtonesque - Alter It

 I took these plain old coasters (chipboard) and altered them into a piece of creepy table art:

What do you think?
The image is from Smeared Ink, sentiment is from Dilly Beans.  I painted the coasters with Gesso in a heavy layer.  I then sprayed with Jet Black Smooch Spritz and added some buttons.
