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!

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 …

Mixed Media Haunted Tombstone

Ohhhhh help me.... It's my favourite time of year.  Not that I needed to tell you.  I do love Halloween and all the creepy things that go bump in the night.  OK, not really I am a chicken.
I recently received some brush love from Tracy Moreau.  How excited was I... ummm BLOWN AWAY.  You will be seeing these Dynasty Brushes from me a lot!  Like all the time.  

I put my tombstone together which is an Etcetera Tag with some pieces to creep it out.  Then pulled together some Deco Art Media Paints.  YUM!

I used the Medium Flat Brush to apply the paint.  It gets in everywhere.  For the back I used a baby wipe to apply the grey.  I mean... it's the back right.

Oh ya texture paste people.

MAGICAL!  I applied a variety of browns, orange, green and black with my flat brushes.  These brushes went right over my textures and blended beautifully.  JUST AMAZING!  Add accessories... like the inky kind and die cut kind.

TA DA...


To create even more texture Baked Texture everywhere.


SHINY!

What I learned with Gel Press

LET GO...  that's all!
No really, I have never done this before and always wanted to try.  So it would be a good idea to start with... umm oh I don't know... card stock for a card background.  Nope, I went for 2 pages.  I told myself the same thing I tell in my workshops...
***WATCH MY VIDEO AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST***
"TRUST THE PROCESS"

Check out my quick video for the good stuff. 

A few good things... ok AWESOME THINGS!

Not seen in the video but I did the linen side of the media journal with collage paper and OH MY GOODNESS!

SERIOUSLY... LETTER IT goes on EVERYTHING!

A closer look at the collage tissue.

Collage Words are a perfect layer.

I used Scribble Sticks to pinpoint colours.

I can't believe I did this!

Scribble sticks are the bomb!

These 2 pages look awesome.

So what are your thoughts on my first Gel Press art journal pages.  Did I do OK?  
I love the freeing process of just smearing around paint.  I love all the layers of paint, textures with stencilling…
