31 days of Halloween day 19

Welcome to day 19 of the 31 days of Halloween organized by Smeared and Smudged,
blogroll is in the side bar.
I am also a Cryptkeeper in the Halloween countdown 2013, for the complete list of 192 Cryptkeepers joining the countdown to Halloween, see link here

for today's post I've got another altered item for you. I changed a white tray to a Halloween tray, also decorated glass candle holders for Halloween.
The tray was white , I gessoed it and painted it spiced pumpkin using Deco Art americana acrylics, then added sour apple , and lavender with almost dry brush, to give it a spooky look.
Then a layer of Weathered wood crackle medium , then I stamped the black (lamp black) pumpkins and tekst. It did crackle but the pics don't show it well.
Finished with a protective layer of matte varnish.

The glass candle holders were decorated using the Deco Art spooky stencil and a glass paint marker.


and another AJ page, the background is made using a Gelli plate Americana Acrylic paints (berry red, blue harbor , spiced pumpkin,  cadmium yellow) and Tim Holtz and Sizzix dies that have been used as a mask.
The Rick St. Dennis image used is called Crow Hunter you can find him in the  Etsy or in the zibbet shop.
The senti is from "The Crow" (duh!!)

see you for day 20
