Pooh is Musically Challenged

Well hello there. It's Pooh here with you today at the bears' creation station. I'm wondering if you've seen the fabulous new challenge over at Musically Challenged? This fortnight's chosen inspiration video is Creepshow, by Kerli. The idea is to take whatever inspiration you gain from the video and create something with it.
Well, our computer decided to have a little sulk, so I only managed to watch the video twice, but I think I gained enough inspiration from it to create my project, which this week, I decided was to be a giant tag.

The video is rich in layers, and I wanted to replicate this in my creation. First, I took the tag outside and spritzed Dylusions sprays through a mask, to create a mottled effect. To this I added some random stamping.

I had this wonderful image to work with, you can find it, and so many more images at Dilly Beans. I printed the image in two different sizes, as in the video the impression is of the main character shrinking and growing as she completes her journey. I coloured everything in shades of blue, if you watch the video, you'll see why.

I found these flowery stamps among our collection, and they reminded me of the flowers in the video, how serendipitous.

To the bottom of the tag, I decided to add some of this

With this

To represent a watery layer (it looks better dried, honest!)

Of course, it wouldn't have looked good if I hadn't added this

Over the beady mess

I was ultra careful while spraying indoors, Wilbear becomes a little more curmudgeonly if we decorate the walls with our mists.

Once everything was dried, I began sticking my flowers and images. I added a sentiment, cut from the Cricut, to complete the creation.

Of course, this post would not be complete without a gratuitous shot of yours truly, posing with my creation.

Why don't you pop over to Musically Challenged, watch the video, and join in the challenge? You may even win a prize.
With love from the bears


  1. OMG...Amazing !!! This is just so straight out of the video !!! BRILLIANT make my little Bear Friend :-D xxxxxxxxxxxx

  2. Ooh... that is such a cool tag, Pooh - one of the best Bears' makes ever, I'd say! I love the differently sized images, glorious background and that scrummy glass bead gel - brilliant work!
    (And I haven't even watched the video yet - my computer is also a bit sulky at the moment, and I want to catch up on as much visiting as I can while it's behaving itself.)
