Smeared & Smudged and a New Blog Challenges - Sour Alice

Well I hope the 4th was great for everyone.  Too much food already and it is only Friday!  I was able to work on one project this past week, then when I was almost computer had to go to the doctor.  Got her back just today, so was able to finish project just in time for the closing date.

I am going to enter my project into two challenges.  One being for the Smeared and Smudged Forum and the other for a fun new blog, Musically Challenged Challenge.  This new blog lets you get creative and inspired from music and or  the music video.  Very cool, better get over there to check it out and the Design Team.

S&SF - Junk Funk July Challenge - Use a yogurt pots (container) or anything similar.

Musically Challenged Challenge #3 - Along Came A Spider by Alice Cooper

I watched the mini movie / music video and wanted to do something a little different and insane.  I am a sucker for backgrounds.  I loved what was going in the background on all three segments of this challenge.  I ended up using the container as a look into the craziness of one's mind with this video as my inspiration.  Since I used a Sour Cream container I have decided to name this little project Sour Alice:

The Crazy Deets
The video itself had so many parts that all ended up fitting.  That is what I tried to do with this container.

Let me apologize for the bad picture of the inside.  I took it through the eye hole, but my camera did not like it - so fuzziness.  But, yes, that is Slash rocking out.  I printed him out, cut slits on each side of guitar and added the red ribbon.  then glued down to bottom of container.

I wanted the inside to look like the padded walls of a room.  I had some bubble packaging that I am going to use on another project, and thought that it would be great to Gesso (white).  There you go, my walls.

Every 80's metal video (almost) had one bombshell or another in it.  I used three lovely ladies from my Smeared Ink Rubber Club, Femdom.  I stamped them in Black Staze On, on the inside of the container.

When the Gesso dried, I wrote the lyrics with a sharpie and some graffiti.
Stamps from the set Tiny Tags (retired Stampin' Up!), Smeared Ink Rubber Club - sets Urban Decay and Prints.

I cut the packaging into sections, because I did not have enough.  But it worked out because you are able to see some T & A from the ladies.

The straight jacket had to be a part of my project.  So I decided to wrap it around what my insane, crazy mind came up with.

I used a piece of 12"x 12" Very Vanilla card stock.  Place strips of Masking Tape.  Then sewed down the strips.  I did end up sponging some inks to add some age.

I used Sticky Strip to adhere everything down.

The strap holding the jacket in place is a piece of Cotton Ribbon that I stamped sploches (Gorgeous Grunge SU! set) on.   Then sewed buttons on in red and purple to represent the colors of the chocking scarves.

Distress Crackle Paint, Picket Fence, by Tim Holtz was spread mainly around cut eye on lid.  Once dried, Gesso was applied.

When Gesso dried I used my mixture of Black Staze On reinker, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, and alcohol to paint around eye to make Alice Cooper's trademark makeup.  Dropped mixture around edges as well.

Once this layer was dried, I added Crystal Effects and applied mixture once more.  

All inks, card stock, and accessories are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
