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.

  1. Mo - you know that I absolutely love this one! I have a great fondness for Rick's turtles and this one looks so evil. I think your journal page is awesome and the words are superb!! xxxx
