Haunted Design House have started up again.Miss us??
To ease you all back into tapping the darker side of your crafty world, enough of all that father xmas stuff urgh ;) we are having a Freakers Free For All, that's right, you get to let your imagination go wild and as long as it's not cute we would love to see what your twisted little minds will come up with.And for something new this year our challenges are now fortnightly so you get twice as long to enter.Head over to HdH to see what the first half of our team have been up to and check back next Monday to see what the other half have created.
I have been back in my journal and I have to say sorry for the pics, the page does not look this bad in real life,I just could not get a decent pic no matter what.
The main Image is actually some classic painting I tore out of an old art book (minus the horns) and stuck into my journal thing. I then went to town with the translucent paints, adding washes of yellow, orange, gold and red.I used a Tim Holtz inspiration stamp but left of the happy ending part ;) 'sometimes on the way to our dreams we get lost.....'
I also used my little alphabet stamp set to stamp one of my favourite quotes, I am not sure where it comes from originally but it is used in the Unusual Suspects. 'The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist'
The 666 was die cut and stuck down before the paint went on. Everything got sealed with a watered down mix of glue n seal (I think that's why it was a b***h to photo) There is a tiny bit of distress crackle along some of the edges and some white distress stain swiped over the top to add to the distressed look. I dry brushed around the edges with some pale green acrylic paint for a little contrast.
Again sorry for the bad pics but I do hope you will come and join us this fortnight in out free for all challenge.
Thanks for stopping by. x
Over at Smudgy Antics they are having a Scrap it up challenge, the sticky doily bits are scraps that have been laying around and the numbers have been cut from my scrap card pile.
