Halloween at Haunted Design House

Sorry due to circumstances a bit too early on my blog, on HDH this will show monday Oct. 19th,

 the challenge at HDH is Halloween themed, so get over there and add your entry :-)
I made a Halloween/skellie Shrine

The skulls stamp in the background is from the Morte set by Rick St.dennis, now avialable as digi only here

The base is a tree slice, added paintable texture  crackle and painted it Orange Flame when dry. Made a wash of the Carbon black and rubbed it into the crackles and over the orange to make it look a bit aged.

All dies are Tim Holz, the pentagram is made using sticks put togehter using wire and painded Carbon Black.

The crackle backgound got skulls stamped on (rubber stamp designed by Rick St. dennis, no longer available in rubber only as digi stamp).

Next I added Triple Thick Gloss Glaze over the crackle layer to protect the paint and stamps. The Dies got painted and the Happy Halloween Sign got the Andy Skinner crackle stamp on it. Happy Halloween was stamped and has gold embossing powder on it.

next the dies got  a layerTriple thick gloss on them.

The plastic skellie was heated using my heatgun and bended into a sitting position  and got seated on the pentagram

A shrine needs a candle ofcourse, so I glued a plastic skellie hand to the wood (painted it black first) and put a battery operated candle on it ( real candle and plasic skellie is melt down I guess lol)

we can;t wait to see your entries here

I will enter this in the Deco Art Mixed Media Haunts challenge here

Floating Vampire skull

For today's make I have a floatng vampire skull,

 The skull is a Rick St.dennis digi you can find it here. Coloured using pencils. Cut out and framed between two glass plates.

The frame is made of wood, usedAmericana gesso to base coat it, and painted it Dazzling Metallics Venetian Gold. next was a layer of Weathered wood, and the top paint layer isAmericana lamp black. When the crackles appeared and the black paint was dry I used Matte Varnish to protect the crackle layer. Next the fun started, creating paint drips, used Red Alert Americana for the dripings, mixed it with a bit of water to get it running. When the dripping was dry I added some Glamour dust in Sizzling red, because vampires like a little sparkle too.

Easy project with a great result I think :-)

Halloween Turtle

I made a page in my journal, using the Rick St.dennis Halloween turtle (btw there is a turtle in Rick's shop for all occasions). I made the background by sponging Deco Art acrylic paint in neon colours.

see materials used underneath pic

Deco Art paints used : Americana Neons in Scorching Yellow and Electric Blue. Multisurface acrylic in Pink, and Americana acrylic in Orange Flame. For the trees and tombstones I made a maske fro Sizzix Alterations Dies (Graveyard and Branche tree) and spinges them with Deco Art Traditions in Carbon Black

The paints are sponged over eachother while they were still wet so they mixed into, what I think are, Halloween colours, I tried to create a landscape that was spooky and at the same time was not to dark.
The Tim Holtz dies were used to make stencils (used use cardstock it wil work fine).
The Turtle was coloured using Prismacolor pencil and cut out to glue on the page, the branches at the bottom of the page is an Inkadinkado stamp.

The senti I found on the net, no idea who thought of this one , there was no name in, but I thought it was so funny, I just had to use it. 
It must be the rat that said this to the turtle, but I am sure the turtle helped cover up the body, you can see that in his face.

 I made a card using a rubber stamp available at I Brake for Stamps, it is designed by Rick S.dennis and  this pretty lady is called miss Hagatha Crone. I made the background using Deco Art Media misters (in Yellow Green, Orange and purple), a Deco Art stencil, designed by Andy Skinner (Shredded), Americna Acrylic paint in orange flame and some stamps. Used a Deco Art paint glass marker in white to trace the stamps and the edges of the card
