Hi everyone, and an especially big hello and welcome to my latest followers, thank you for joining me on my arty journey.
Today see's the 4th challenge of the month and subsequently my penultimate GDT piece for
Stampotique Designers Challenge for October.
This weeks challenge theme has been chosen by Kristen and is
"Ghouls & Goblins"
which fits in perfectly with Halloween only around the corner.
This is the only time that we sit in our own homes, with all the lights off and the TV off pretending to be out, lol.
To celebrate this weeks theme I have made a 3D piece.
I have taken 2 mdf fob watch frames and using mountboard cut another to give it a back to it.
Then I painted it with black gesso, and applied texture paste through Tim Holtz shattered stencil.
Once dry, it was then painted using Lumin arts Silks in Persimmon & Wine and Roses.
for the graveyard I have used Tim Holtz on the edge die - Graveyard cut from grunge paper. It has then had a light coating of texture paste to make them look more like stone. Whilst the paste was still wet I carved RIP into it with a cocktail stick and left to dry. Once dry I gave it a rough coat of Pumice stone distress paint. I have added some spiders web fibres to make it look misty.
The background is dylusion inks and clingfilm technique on gloss card.
all the colouring has been done using Copics and Spectrum Noir pencils with a brushing of Black Soot distress ink to tone it all down.
Stampotique stamps used are:-
Halloween Cubes 1 & 2
Text is all computer generated.
