31 Days of Halloween - Day 31!!!!

Wooo Hooo!!! Happy Halloween!!!! Well, if you've stuck with it you'll know this is the culmination of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween.  We've had an entire month full of spooks, haunts and scary goodness and to finish it off I'd like to share my
Box of Bones But it doesn't really have bones in it... Just a whole lot of corny Halloween joke cards! Initially I sanded the candy tin then covered it with a layer of black ink. I sanded a bit more so some of the red/gold would show through. I then set about adding gobs of gesso to the lid ~ next I pushed in "bits" of a plastic skeleton I had previously cut apart submerging the pieces about half way.  I let the gesso dry overnight. The next day I painted the gesso and bones with another layer of black acrylic paint.  Once that layer had dried I rubbed a bit of metallic acrylic paint over the bones to really make them pop.  I also applied a bit of the metallic paint on the sides as well.
I set about …

Day 30 "A little fun with Zetti and Poe in a bottle"

Hey everyone, well we are getting down to the wire!! Can I have a big Scary Cheer for all the amazing artists that have inspired us during this ghoulishly awesome blog hop!!! I just want to thank all of you for joining in and for your wonderful comments!!
Today I bring you a little bit of craziness. I am in love with Zettiology and of course Collage art. So when I received some most gnarly images from Altered Pages and Smeared Ink I knew I would have to find a way of throwing them all together to create a page in my art journal for today's project. So without further ado here is my fun Zetti art journal page using their awesome collage and digi images.

A Poe in a bottle anyone? LOL I began with a blank page in my art journal, adding several pieces of torn book pages I  then sprayed the page with several different colors of Dylusions ink.  Next I did a little snipping and pasting of different parts of the collage and digi images to create Poe in a specimen bottle and mad Skelly. A…

31 Days of Halloween - Day 29

One Bite...
Today I wanted to share a nifty little collage I assembled on top of a bingo card.  I first covered it with a layer of gesso and then sprayed it with grape & cut grass Dylusions Inks which I added a spritz or two of water.  As I was drying it with my heat tool I was tilting the card this way and that to get the cool veins of color. I added Dracula & the "bite" both from the collage sheet Vintage Vampires and I also printed out the digital image of the stacked skulls from the Gothic Halloween Stamp set and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers. I fussy cut the skulls and finished it off with the sentiment.
One Bite and all your dreams will come true.... Have a spooktacular day! Ink Stained Roni

31 Days of Halloween - 27

Since today is my birthday I thought it would be fun to create a Day of the Dead birthday card!

It was made using pattern papers from Graphic 45's Bohemian Bazaar and a few sugar skulls from the Calaveras Digi Set by Smeared & Smudged!
Each of the skulls was colored using Spectrum Noir markers and added to it's own matching pattern paper panel. Be sure to search for today's hidden image (hint found on Terra's blog) and you might just be one of the lucky winners! Good Luck All! Ink Stained Roni

31 Days of Halloween Day 24 **Shadow Box Coffins

I finished my set of three paper mache coffins you can find here in our shop. I painted them with gold paint and used deco paper and washi tape
  Inside I added Collage sheets for Halloween, Skulls, moss and flower decor.  This was really fun to make . Very simple and it sparkles!

 Gotta love the Death Cab and poem stamp from Smeared and Smudged . Paper Flowers, more Skulls.


 I Had fun making shadow boxes from the coffins, so many great ideas!! 
Happy Halloween Melanie Statnick www.melaniestatnickart.com



31 Days of Halloween - 23

Halloween's almost here... so it's time to get your Halloween on!!!
This was so much fun to make! A little whimsy to remind you just what time of year it is ;)
My little pumpkin hottie is from the collage sheet Moulin Rouge that I added a pumpkin from the collage sheet - Pumpkin, It's what for dinner.
This canvas also features the gargoyle from the AP Gothic Halloween Set of stamps. Hope you're having fun Halloween hoppin'!

SPECIMENS ANYONE???

I LOVED making this!!!  SOOO fun!!
Specimens!  and some blood too!! I got the awesome SpecimenBottles from the Altered Pages store.  Then, I had to find things to put in them.

I also got the AWESOME G45 Steampunk Spells Paper.  And that made it soooo easy because one of the sheets of paper had these titles on it.  SO I just had to try to make what they said.  Here, you see my version of Beetle Juice, a mixture of worms and scorpion parts.  The Elixir tags are also from the Altered Pages site.  I used them to write what was in the bottle or jar.  You just saw a rats tail!!

Now you see the Eye of Newt, Wool of Bat and Toe of frog (poor frog!).  And a better look at the "Blood"!!

Finally, a Zombie finger!!
I hope you make your own Specimens! xxDaniella

Quoth the Raven - 31 Days of Halloween!

"Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak & weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore -  While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door -  "Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door - only this and nothing more." Edgar Allen Poe, The Raven

Who doesn't know this famous quote from Poe's poem The Raven? His poems & stories are so creepy & dark that of course many of his works conjure up thoughts of All Hallows Eve!  So what better subject for a day in our 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop with the team at Smeared Ink!
If you've been following along all month, you know that our challenge is to create Halloween or Day of the Dead-themed projects with some kind of stamping on them. It's been really cool to see all the different work out there!

It's Becky here today to share my 2nd project for the month & not my first Poe projec…

Two-fer, but punny, so watch out-- 31 Days of Halloween, Day 19!

Everyone still Halloween Hopping? ( Linkys are up in the right hand corner.)  So I started making a big hunkin' project, using (what else?) Altered Pages collage images, plus some pretty awesome Smeared digis, but  . . . 

ended up with two smaller pieces instead.  First, Bettie and Bertram are still in hell, this time with a Dante's Inferno twist (Mr. Gargoyle is AP):
What do you think?  Is the blood on the toothbrush too much?
(The wonderfully detailed pedestal/column is from S&S.)
And second, an altered tin:
 But not just ANY altered tin.  This one is a Halloween  PLAY SET!

Because, after all, ghouls just wanna have fun. There, I said it.   And I'm NOT sorry.  ;) 
Happy Hopping!
