Welcome to Day 16 of the 31 Days of Halloween

Tin was first painted with alcohol inks.  A thin coat of paste was applied to the top, when dry the top was painted with ArtAnthology Terra Cotta Dimensional Acrylic Ink. The outside was embellished simply with a keyhole.



Inside is gruesome!!!!  JUST BONES! The background is Altered Pages Collage Sheet Macabre Page, layered on top is a stamped skeleton, Skulls, gauze, chess piece and gargoyle!  




 Inside on the right is an image from Altered Pages Collage Sheet Creepy Anatomy

  8. This is fabulous and I love it!! It takes talent to arrange all the pieces inside to look right. I have tried it and mine look terribly thrown about in it! Yours looks exactly like you have set the tone for it to look! Hope that makes sense!? Anyway, wonderfully fantastic!!

  9. I have a soft spot for gargoyles. They are so misunderstood.
    You did a marvelous job of placing the small pieces in just the right way.

  10. I love the texture and color of the lid and the key hole is simple and perfect. The inside reminds me of the old Dracula movies and the "lack" of color makes it even more perfect. It's like opening an ancient tomb!!!

 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.

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 ab
