Zombie Walk

Are you ready to join the Zombie Walk?

Hands up if you can't get enough if this creepy walker!  I am not a watcher of creepy things.  It scares the crap out of me.  I prefer to create creepy things instead of watch them.


I cut the Lost Zombie 2x with Sizzix Mat Board.  The distressed the Coredinations paper and cut the Handwritten Halloween Thinlit "toil & trouble".  The zombie clothes are trimmed for a layering effect.


Using a piece of watercolor paper I inked with my distress markers and added plenty of water for blending.  Then spritzed with more markers.  I wanted it very subtle.


Line up the parts and glue away.Next I inked the lost zombie with distress spray stain and added some ink to intensify.  


Time for inking those clothes.  For texture on the pants I sprinkled a pinch of distress powder.  The top I created a plaid shirt.


A bunch of inking for the shirt and a coat of clear rock candy crackle paint.  Another pinch of distress powder for texture and why not add some for the hair..  I cut the pumpkin in half and it worked easy!   Pekoe is making sure I did everything right.


Spritz the Lost Zombie with black soot distress marker for a mottled dead appearance.


I tiny strip of leather for the belt and a pounded brad.


For the pumpkin half I added a coat of clear rock candy crackle paint then when it was partially dry I rubbed it off. 


The subtle inking and spritzing pops the die cut sentiment.


Oh he needed something extra.  So some grungy chains will do fine!


He looks like he's popped from the earth.  


A pop of carved pumpkin for the inside!


Don't get lost...


More creepiness to come.  

BEWARE!

  1. Great layering of the dies and elements. I used to love horror films when I was younger but they are much too intense for me these days too. Xxx

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

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.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Make Watercoloring Easy with Clearsnap Blends

Ohhhh the Blends are here and I am loving them!  I am super excited to play with Eileen Hull's Clearsnap Colorbox Blends.  This month the Inspiration Team has been sharing their projects and they have been AMAZING!
Follow this easy tutorial for watercoloring with Blends.

I pulled out the watercolor paper grabbed my floral dies heart & soul and pansy.  Grabbed my Blends and Koi stamp.

OH MY GOODNESS... Look at how the Blends work with my Koi stamp.  I randomly applied the Blends and spritz with water then stamp.  I designed this Koi stamp to have a watercolor effect when stamping so perfecto!

The pansy die is cut and ready for Blends.  I popped some colour on my mat, spritz and drag.  I inked the edges a bit then ran my watercolor pen to soften.  The perfect lily pad.  Repeat this step for the heart & soul in hues of blue Blends.

With the Koi dry apply some of the Blends in blue, spritz and use a watercolor pen for this water step.  Randomly apply the shades of blue to cre…

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…
