Hello my dear blog reader,
Heike here from Heike`s AugenBlick and I am your host for today.
With Halloween around the corner, I decided to create a scrapbook page
in mixed media style with the theme "Halloween".
I love everything that has to do with Halloween. The decoration, the creepyness,
the costumes and and and...
It`s just so sad that Halloween doesn`t play a big role here in Europe.
My dream is: I want to spend Halloween in Disney-Land America.
That must be so cool.
How about you, do you like Halloween too?
Keep calm and create
I started my layout on a paper-sheet from the "Down under" paper collection from 13@rts
which I covered with two layers of clear gesso. After my gesso was dry, I added Archival red ink
to a stencil from ScrapFx. Then I stamped with the same Archival red ink and a stamp from ScrapFx.
Archival ink becomes waterproof after drying the ink with a heat tool. Red liquid paint as teardrop.
I made my embellishments with Tim Holtz Big DIEs.
The coffin and my title are from ScrapFx and I painted them both with black gesso.
After that I felt I needed more stamp imges on my background.
I stamped with versafine ink and I added to the wet ink WOW black embossing powder.
After melting the embossing powder I painted yellow spots to the stamp images
and I added black gesso on the edges.
Some orange pen lines and my background was done.
My next inspiration is an art journal page.
I started my art journal page on a DIN 4 format watercolorpaper.
My first layer was turquise and yellow acrylic paint from Deco Art
which I added with my brayer. After that I stamped with Archival ink in the same color
palet as my acrylic paint and ScrapFx stamps. My next step was adding stamp images with
black Archival ink. After adding my focal point I painted yellow highlights and some
yellow painted chipboards to my page. My title is the new collage paper from ScrapFx
which I glued on cardstock for a 3D effect.
I used from ScrapFx:
Men in Black
Triangle Pentagons stencil Halloween layout
Circuitry Bits chipboard art journal page
Chronicles of Time chipboard title Halloween layout
Casket, Dracula coffin chipboard Halloween layout
