Welcome to day 2 of the 31 days of Halloween, page 2 of the junkjournal :-)
The page came from my Dutch to English dictionary I used in school, the paper was allready yellowed but I thought it needed some more aging. To make sure the paper would not bleed when using stamps, I added a few layers of Matte varnish. Stamped the corners using a spiderweb clear stamp
Added the Hauser Medium Green and Antique Mauve acrylic in the middle of the page , Coloured the skull digi and cut it out and used Matte Medium to glue it on the page
Added some more matte Varnish to protect the stamping and colouring and when dry I added the Crackle glaze.
Gesso the canvas and the piece of carboard (I gesso both sides of the cardboard so it won't warp)
Paint the canvas Antique Linnen and let dry, make a wash of Traditional burnt umber and water and age the canvas using a kitchen towel.
Paint the cardboard in Hauser Medium Green and Antique Mauve using a sponge. When paint is dry use the skulls from the morte stamp set to create the back ground. Next use the Industrial stamps by Stampendous to age the background and give it the same wash as the dictionary page.
Use Matte Varnish to protect it
Distress the edges of the carboard using a small paint brush and traditional burnt umber paint .
Glue all parts togehter, I usse matte medium to glue the page to the card board.
