Welcome to Day 2 of SmudgeFest!!
The Challenge: TRASHY TUESDAY
Create a project by upcycling some of your trash! Be sure to pick something that is obviously trash (i.e. soda can, bottle tops, bread closure tabs, etc.).
Time to get trashy! Remember, be sure to link up by midnight tonight to qualify for the daily (and grand) prize. Then check back tomorrow for the new theme.
Link the projects on the Smudgy Antics Blog.
Here is my offering for today:

My item of trash is a Ball Glass Mason Jar used for pickling. I added water and Ranger Distress Inks to the jar to create a bloody color and then I added a "growing brain" that I received from Kristy. My brain is only two days old so it will continue to grow for at least another day or two. To decorate the jar, I used letters from Smeared Ink's "Build a Zombie Alphabet". If you want this set you'd better hurry because it is being retired soon. The brain image came from Smeared Ink's "Babies of the Damned" set. It was originally part of a baby's rattle, but I cut off the handle and had a perfectly good brain to use.
When my brain grows to full-size, I want to see if I can preserve it. I know it can't stay in water forever without starting to degrade and if I remove the brain it will shrink down again once it dries. I was thinking about spilling the water out of the jar and pouring melted UTEE in the jar with the brain in it. I'm not sure if it will work or not, but you guys and gals will be the first to know.
