Challenge #94

This fortnights challenge 'Halloween' has been chosen by CraftyGirl.  I never know what to do for Halloween as I don't celebrate it but this year I came up with something useful lol.  Hubby recently bought me a K40 laser, it has been a nighmare to get working properly but he is a gem in that department and got it all set up for me - it did take nearly 2 months to sort all the issues of squiff guanty, bad mirrors, aligning mirror issues, fans, new board and software etc. but now I am having so much fun with it the wait has been well worth while.  For this creation I designed the web and used an image of a spider with I traced in Illustrator to change it to a vector image.  When all the design side was done I put my 3mm ply in the K40 who we have named 'The Bitch' and told her to cut it out.  Total awesomeness lol.  Once cut I sanded the pieces then painted with acrylic paint and gave to my grandson to hang up in his house on Halloween.  Fingers crossed the spider with glow in the dark as it was painted with glow in the dark paint.
