I love crows for decorating this time of year. And they are everywhere! This is a $1 Store project featuring my crow and a Christmas Box. I picked up the crow for $2 and the box was $1.25 and I grabbed the wee witches hat at Michaels with my 50% coupon bring it to about $1.50. This whole project ended up costing about $5! Not to bad.
I popped the cone portion of the witches hat off so I could wrap it in matching paper. Then I glued it back into place.
The 31 is from the TH Gothic Boo die. I attached the tinsel and used my heat gun to age the tinsel.
I used up some old orange ribbon and attached this skull from a $1 bracelet. TH Skull n' Cross is some perfect hardware I glued in place by folding the brim.
Another skull and some glittery Halloween accents glued on top.
I made a banner with grungepaper and HAPPY HALLOWEEN stamped. I used some walnut stain ink to distress the edges. The attach with hot glue. A little glitter pumpkin and Spanish moss complete the creepy scene.
The Iron Fence boarder die is wonderfully gothic. The I attached the Word Band. A little more tinsel adds some bling.
I love the Apothecary Skull! He's so creepy. Then I used the eye ball from the Remnant Rubs- Elements.
Another great addition to my Halloween Collection!
It is official... I am addicted to Journaling. This is an inspiration post... why? I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas. I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.
I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with. I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.
See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then add the paint.
Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder.
Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep. To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder.
Heat and yum! Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge.
Spray and layer onto the pages. Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works!
Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page. BAM! I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…
What's new? Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me. Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.
There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.
