Altered Skull Cup

Happy Hauntings Everyone!!! I am back with another Halloween themed project for Art Anthology and this time I decided to alter a plastic skull head cup I found at Kmart here in Australia.

  1. I started by painting my cup and Dusty Attic chipboard pieces with black gesso. I then used modeling paste and AA’s Cracked stencil to create the illusion of veins.

2. Once dry, I then applied Bone Stone Effects with my palette knife randomly all over the cup and dried with my heat tool.

3. I then adhered my chipboard pieces and painted again with black chipboard. Once it was dry, I then added Black Leather Jacket Sorbet Dimensional Paint all over and dried again.

4. Next I used Tango and Boysenberry Velvet Dimensional Paint to colour the chipboard spider and flourish.

5. I then used Nuvo Embellishment mousse to colour the all over the black gesso area.

6. To finish off the cup I then added Rust Texture Set  and some small plastic spiders.

Spooky Halloween Shadow Box

Hi there my lovelies!!! Today I am up on the Art Anthology blog with my first Halloween Project.

  1. I painted all my chipboard pieces and shadowbox with black gesso. I then applied Sandstone Stone Effects using a palette knife to the box and Gargoyles.

2.  I then used Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint to add highlights to the chipboard pieces.

3. Next I dry brushed onto the shadowbox using Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint.

4.  I painted my potion bottles using Sorbet Dimensional Paint in Black Leather Jacket…. I LOVE this colour.

5. The bottles needed some more texture as they got lost in the box so I added some Sandstone Stone Effects but I made sure I didn’t cover the pieces.

6. Next I painted some of the bottles with Kenyan Copper Sorbet Dimensional Paint

7. Finally before adhering everything together, I used Peacock Feathers Colorations Spray to colour the other potion bottles and used the left over spray on my desk to dry brush on the shadow box.

Fright Night Halloween Layout

Hello everyone!!! Today I am up on the Dusty Attic Blog another Halloween project but this time it’s a layout. I had so much fun creating this layout, it was nice do something a little spooky!!!

Fright Night Halloween layout

For the base cardstock I have used one of the sheets from 49 and Market Rusty Autumn Collection. This purple was perfect for what I wanted to do. I stamped the cracks stamp with black archival ink and added some Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint in Metallique Fresh Orange.

I added white gesso around the edges of the photo and my chipboard pieces – Web Flourish and the small web from Spiders and Web set and adhered them to the layout.

Dusty Attic Fright Night layout

I applied black gesso to the smaller skeleton from the Skeletons pack and then lightly rubbed some Art Alchemy wax in the Brushed Iron. I also used this wax on the Web Flourish.

For the Page Pebbles #14 and Wordpl@y #6 I lightly painted the Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint in Metallique Fresh Orange and then covered the chipboard with black archival ink making sure I used a swiping motion so that the ink didn’t go into the grooves of the chipboard.

Spider close up Halloween layout

For my Redback Spider  I used the smaller spider from the Spiders set. I painted it with black gesso and used a red acrylic paint for the red line.  I also did the same for the smaller spider up on the top left hand corner using Spiders and Web set.

For the chain I painted with black gesso and then applied Art Alchemy Waxes in Rich Copper, Bronze Age and Aged Brass. To finish off the layout I also added some stamping around the edges of the patterned paper using Kaisercraft Film Edges clear stamp set.
