Halloween is just around the corner and spooky times will run amok! The veil between the worlds is at its thinnest at Halloween and Beltane - so be afraid! Laughing!!!
Lots of challenges about with Halloween as the theme - which is great, it really gets the juices flowing, The things for sale in the shops are so creepy as well and really cheap, and I wanted to use one of them so I chose this stupid skeleton for £1.49, and came up with this...........
The wooden ring is from robs (www.mdfman.co.uk) and its so versatile. First thing was to cut up some greyboard and glue it on (this means it looks like really thick crackle without the expense!), spread crackle texture paste here and there and then tear up some nappy liners (diaper liners) and glue them on.
On the opposite side of the ring I tore up some scrapbook paper and stuck it on and when it was all dry stamped it with crackle glaze effect stamp, and also added Viva Decor Inka Golds in different colours to add some interest.
Then I sprayed up some Skulls (again from the Robster) - this time white and stamped them with the crackle glaze stamp (from Indigo Blu)
I also inked them to make them look a bit more ancient and tatty
Finally I took a plaque (mdfman again!!) and created a faux stone effect and using the Tim Holtz stamps for Halloween - stamped on the words.
Attached the skeleton and the skulls, and some black wire, and also took an old pop sock which I shredded and painted red to look like guts! Plus I put in the number 31 for the ABC challenge!
Last night we went to see Jersey Boys - which was AMAZING! Totally fantastic! and Diane has been texting me, she texted me a few moments ago and said "I expect you are spraying a skeleton or something!!" how close to the truth can you get! laughing! I mean its just an everyday thing isnt it - "hang on I am just spraying a skeleton!"
