Monster Ball! Halloween Ornament!

Monster Ball! Halloween Ornament!

Day 31 of the 31 Days of Halloween!

I love Halloween not for the Scary Boo stuff but for the time we spent with our family watching old Monster Movies and being together. Time has moved on yet when we do reunite when the time is right we can’t resist reliving  our love of Monster movies!

For this Month’s challenge AlteredPages joined with Art Anthology to rock our crafting world!

I just want to tell you that in addition to the beautiful products that AlteredPages has, Art Anthology has some of the coolest dimensional metallic medium! I can’t get enough of it! Copper and just a pat with a spatula makes beautiful peaks of texture!
Supplies:

Additional items are mentioned in the video!


Thank you so much for joining me!

Now, from our partner Art Anthology we have a project by Designer Mariyln Hughes!

 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
