Happy Halloween! Today I have a Halloween mixed media piece.

I painted one side of the back piece with Ebony Tattered Angles DIY & Decor paint. The other side I decided to use gesso and then the black paint. I then pout white glue on one side then used Americana's Purple Rain craft paint. The set it to start the cracks. I set it aside fr it to completely dry before doing the same thing to the other side. The Frame I did the same but used Americana's Margarita craft paint.

While all that was drying I took  spider Web from UmWowStudio and used Deco Art Metallic Luster in Silver Spark. I glued that to the back of the frame. I used 4 layers of foam tape on the back of the frame painted the sides of the foam tape black. and attached to the base. I took a fly that was molded from Mod Podge Mold Melts mold and used Amazing Casting resin. I painted it with Saffron Yellow craft paint by Americana. 

The top I glued a Halloween Token on top of the frame. I put a bat from K&Co border strips where the hole of the token was. 

I gessoed a witch chipboard piece from UmWowStudio and used Dylusions Fresh Lime paint using a pallet knife.  I originally wanted to use a stencil with the paint on the chipboard, but Didn't like it so i used the pallet knife and spread the paint on the chipboard. Gave it a cool texture. Glued that down on the base. The bottom of the frame I glued down the fence border from K&Co. 

I added glued 3 black flowers tot he right corner. I used one of the Julie Nutting Doll stamps and used Halloween paper pad by Paper Studio and glued it on the right side

I painted a small piece of white card with Purple Rain craft paint. and stamped "Boo!"  from Martha Stewart. I added 4 layers of foam tape on one side and painted the edge with the purple paint. I Glued the the other side to the left side of the frame.

To see the process of me making this watch my video.

Art Journal page: We're all mad here

Last night I played around in my art journal. This was a quick page. I didn't film this one.  I used Dylusions paint Vibrant Turquoise, Bubble Gum Pink and Fresh Lime (trying to use these paints up before they get too thick and gummy and not usable. I already had to toss 3 jars out.) I used some washi tape from Michaels. I went around the edges of the page with a gelto. and parts of the Tsum Tsum 2018 calendar I got at the 99 cent store. The letters for from my stash.
