Hello peeps, hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I did some of the dreaded H word this morning and so rewarded myself with some inky play this afternoon. I had this little wooden house that had been hanging around for a while so decided to turn it into a Halloween Mansion.
It is not quite full up yet but I had used up all my appropriate stash so will have to wait until I see the last bits. I painted the house a mixture of green orange and black acrylic and then cut up some papers for the background and also made some with my Dylusion sprays. I used Tim Holtz mini stamps that I have recently brought and some of his seasonal stickers. I filled some glass bottles with red ink and pearls, used his blueprint tomb stone stamp behind some railings cut using my Martha Stewart punch, a little wax owl I made at one of Hel Sheridans workshops at the Stamp Attic ages ago, cut out and glossy accented one of Tims blueprint bats and hung up a spooky hand and a skull. Isn't the spider on the roof yukky! Good job it's plastic! Then I dyed some muslin black and ripped it up for the sides. I am pleased with the light. I stamped Ti'ms Halloween spectators onto some acetate packing with black Stayzon, then used orange alcohol ink for the background and taped it around one of those battery night-lights. Tim taught us that trick when I went to a workshop a couple of years ago and made my first configuration box!
Have crafty fun everyone, be back soon. x
