Haunted Design House News :)
I can now share,
I have been asked to be part of the Haunted Design House Design team. I am over the moon about this as it's my first design team.
I have been taking part in their challenges since starting to blog about 3 months ago and it's a great place to visit and take part in their challenges it really lets me let loose the darker side ;)
I'm so happy to be part of their team and very grateful they have asked me to come and play in their dungeon and If you guys ever want to let your darker side rise to the surface please come and join us in the weekly challenges!
This weeks challenge is 'Insidious inspiration' basically use the picture on the right to inspire your project, whether it's a card,tag, mix media etc
Here is what I made using the pic as my muse.I have gone for an old shop window type of display. I painted the skull and used washes to give him some depth, the shadow box frame has been painted with a technique learnt in the Andy Skinner online workshop, I have also stamped onto the frame with one of Tim Holtz's texture stamps.The Bottles are from Tim and the lables are from & gypsies, they have been scuffed and aged a little with distress inks.
I made a couple of tiny books, these were very simple, I just folded some card, covered the front and back with the Tim sticky tape and stained them with distress inks, I coloured the spines with walnut stain to make them look like old bound Journals.
I have taken the pics while the glass was out as the glare was not helping ;)
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you join us over at the Haunted Design House
I'm going to enter this into Simon Says Stamp And Show where the challenge is paint it up. both the shadow box frame and the skull have been painted.
