In Memory of...

Hello friends ,

Out with my secret love , I could not keep myself away from journaling :)
I follow a lot of crafter of which I love Autumn Clark - SewPaperPaint   Work pieces

 This journal is made of cardboard from old cartons.  I have used Tim Holtz Wood Mounted Stamp - Butterflies & Moths, Idea-ology: Tissue Wrap / Melange , Ephemera Pack - Ideology, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Paper Stash Laboratorie , Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder and some twine.

I started by applying gesso on the cardboard. Next I randomly painted acrylic paint over it. Then I stamped the Tim Holtz Wood Mounted Stamp - Butterflies & Moths and embossed it with Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder. Then I splashed Lindy's starburst spary and dried it with ranger heat gun. 

Last I embellished the page with Idea-ology: Tissue Wrap / Melange , Ephemera Pack - Ideology and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Paper Stash Laboratorie

Happy Crafting !

Fellow Crafters,

I am super excited to be Guest Designer at A Vintage Journey for the Spooky challenge.
Here is my take on SPOOKY. Come October it onsets a lot of festivities. One of them is Halloween. Trick or treat,Spooky, Pumpkins,Jack -o- lantern and many such themes are displayed everywhere.

To start with , I have used the back side of the Canvas. First covered the entire backside with Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements Melange in neutral with Multi Medium Matte. Then blend Distress crayon Hickory smoke by rubbing along the inner edges. It gives a very smoky effect. Next I select the background papers from the laboratorie stash. I chose the 6×6 size paper of worn wallpaper. Stick it along the edges and the frame work is ready !

Now for the embellishments to go into the frame.
1. Ornate frame:
Die cut the Ornate frame and apply distress crackle on it. Once dry apply distress paint - Spiced marmalade, walnut stain , hickory smoke over it. This accentuated the cracks.

2. Bottles and SPOOKY alphabets:
The bottles were given a coat of distress crackle ( by now you would have guessed it - I Love Crackle ) and set aside for natural drying. It needs to dry naturally to get the real crackle effect. Heating makes the crackle paint to bubble up. Once dry I poured alcohol ink into it and moved it around , so that it covers the entire inner part. The cracks and alcohol ink gave it a very rusty look.

The alphabets " SPOOKY" was first painted with distress paint : picket fence and spiced marmalade before applying distress crackle.

I then cut out papers of poison labels and distressed it with old paper dye and walnut stain.

3. Pendant : 
This was my favorite of all. I cut out the picture of vintage lady from the laboratorie stash to fit the inner part of the pendant. The glass dome to fit on it was given a coat of alcohol ink. I stuck it using glossy accent .The ageing effect it gave was eye catching. 

Once all the embellishments were completed , assemble them into the back of the canvas. The ghost die is from Sizzix : Ghosts #2 Halloween Sizzix Originals Ghost Die

Hope you all enjoyed this fun and spooky canvas .
