31 days of Halloween ; day 11

Day 11, time flies eh?  only 20 to go........

A Day of the dead Skull shrine today

Americana Acrylics in Lamp Black, Teal Mint, Titanium Whire, Saffron Yellow, True Red.

the outside of the box is painted using red, teal mint and yellow, I used the Aztec stencil to decorate the box amd added some bling to the lit. 

 the inside of the box where the skull is is painted with glamour dust glitter paint
The skull is homemade (used a mold ans plaster of Paris) , it's handpainted and covered in a layer of triple thick gloss glaze. The eyes and the flower are rhinestones

and another page in the junk journal

a piece op scrap paper and some Deco Art Media Crackle Glaze with some Deco Art Antiquing cream to bring out the cracks.  The Monster image is a digi by Rick St.dennis, coloured it and cut it out. Used Matte medium to glue it on the page. the quote is from the book, stamped on cardstock and glued to the page

see ya tomorrow
