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

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
