Halloween Haunted House

Hello

I have a project to share today which I thoroughly enjoyed making.

I started with a Gelli Print onto waste cardboard for the background and a further print in a different colour for the base of the picture.

I cut the Sizzix Haunted House die in 3 shades of card; black, brown and fawn. I cut sections of the paler die cut for the roof and used the black layer to create a shadow by offsetting it slightly.

I added some detail with a fine black pen to create some “brick” shapes.

I used the Sizzix Tree die on cardboard box card and cut down to create more of a branch effect.

I cut a moon shape out of some white foam and positioned behind the house and branches.

Using the XCut alphabet die, I cut Halloween and arranged and lastly, I added a collection of white ghosts using the Quickutz ghost die.

Mixed Media Floral Tomorrow

Hello

I have a “Mixed Media” project to share today.

WP_20140821_019

I started with a Gelli Print I had made using the Gelli Plate with acrylic paints in shades of pink, red, orange and yellow.

I drew a flower using a Sharpie and coloured in using Spectrum Noir pencils.

I splodged yellow acrylic paint randomly through sections of “That Special Touch” Basket Weave Mask and left to dry completely.  I then repeated the process using red acrylic paint and the Moroccan mask.

The last mask I used was “That Special Touch” Leafy and this time I used 3D Clear Texture Paste and applied through sections.  It is white when it goes on but clear and shiny when it is dry.

I then cut lots of diecuts:

Sizzix Interlocking Circles Border Die in pale yellow (which I inked with orange and red ink randomly and tore roughly into 2 sections)

Sizzix Bigz Decorative Accent w/Flower & Leaves in orange foam (which I again stained with ink)

XCut Alphabet die (which I layered onto red cardstock)

I then arranged all the diecuts and added handwritten words.

I hope you like.  As always, I would love to hear your comments.

TTFN.
