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!

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle.

Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today.

One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer above used th…
Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks!

I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!!
I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
