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.



Candy Corn Basket

I am all about the Fall crafts.  It's time for my skeletons to come out of their box and play.  Stop by Eileen Hull's blog for all the Fall Crafting the team has been up too all month.  Check out my photo's for this quick tutorial to create this Candy Corn Basket.

I used my Distress Spray Stains to ink up the basket cut on mat board.  I used packing tape the section off each band of candy corn stripes.  After that's dry I added some EMBOSS IT to the orange and then I embossed the new Aroma Powder Holiday Truffle.  Assemble and decorate.

EEK... Looks soo scary!

Snap and crack...

Filled with gooey gummy worms.

Like a bath.


I hope this has given you a little creepy inspiration for the coming ghosts and goblins.  It's the most wonderful time of the year... Check out the rest of the teams awesome Fall Inspiration.

Media Journal, Decorating the Cover

So... I have this new Media Journal and it's AMAZING!  The Media Journal by Dina Wakely has 54 Multi Surface pages to create with.  Canvas, burlap, linen, thick kraft paper.  I am thinking this art journal will become pages for future classes.  For now I wanted to make it my own by altering the cover.  Plus, Ranger sent me a box of goodies and a lot of Dina Wakely's new releases.  This stencil "WHAT WE DO" has to be the bestest stenil yet!
Check it out.

I prepped my inside page with white gesso.  Then shut the cover and randomly smeared Dylusions Paints.

Once dry, layer the stencil and sponged on some white gesso.  Then I rubbed it off with a wipe.  EEK... the effect is fabulous!
 I flipped it over and layered the stencil again.  This time just rubbing off the paint.  Same idea different technique.
Back inside and this time I am smearing paint all over the stencil.  This effect bleeds under the stencil and it turned out so cool.  I further smeared with my fingers.
