Happy Halloween! Today I have a Halloween mixed media piece.

I painted one side of the back piece with Ebony Tattered Angles DIY & Decor paint. The other side I decided to use gesso and then the black paint. I then pout white glue on one side then used Americana's Purple Rain craft paint. The set it to start the cracks. I set it aside fr it to completely dry before doing the same thing to the other side. The Frame I did the same but used Americana's Margarita craft paint.

While all that was drying I took  spider Web from UmWowStudio and used Deco Art Metallic Luster in Silver Spark. I glued that to the back of the frame. I used 4 layers of foam tape on the back of the frame painted the sides of the foam tape black. and attached to the base. I took a fly that was molded from Mod Podge Mold Melts mold and used Amazing Casting resin. I painted it with Saffron Yellow craft paint by Americana. 

The top I glued a Halloween Token on top of the frame. I put a bat from K&Co border strips where the hole of the token was. 

I gessoed a witch chipboard piece from UmWowStudio and used Dylusions Fresh Lime paint using a pallet knife.  I originally wanted to use a stencil with the paint on the chipboard, but Didn't like it so i used the pallet knife and spread the paint on the chipboard. Gave it a cool texture. Glued that down on the base. The bottom of the frame I glued down the fence border from K&Co. 

I added glued 3 black flowers tot he right corner. I used one of the Julie Nutting Doll stamps and used Halloween paper pad by Paper Studio and glued it on the right side

I painted a small piece of white card with Purple Rain craft paint. and stamped "Boo!"  from Martha Stewart. I added 4 layers of foam tape on one side and painted the edge with the purple paint. I Glued the the other side to the left side of the frame.

To see the process of me making this watch my video.

Art Journal page: We're all mad here

Last night I played around in my art journal. This was a quick page. I didn't film this one.  I used Dylusions paint Vibrant Turquoise, Bubble Gum Pink and Fresh Lime (trying to use these paints up before they get too thick and gummy and not usable. I already had to toss 3 jars out.) I used some washi tape from Michaels. I went around the edges of the page with a gelto. and parts of the Tsum Tsum 2018 calendar I got at the 99 cent store. The letters for from my stash.

This one does not have a video, I started to film it, then after taking a break, I was working on the card again and thought I hit the button.... I didn't. This one with went through stages...lots of ugly stages. Again I used the colors from the Mixed media mood board.

I used the Desert Turquoise, pink and yellow and white. Kept layering with stencils til I was happy. The yellow I used with some corrugate as a stamp. The Thistle chipboard piece is from UmWowStudio. I used from Deco art Metallic Luster in Brilliant Turquoise. This stuff is so creamy. its great. Glued it on the card, then added a quote.

ICAD day 50

Another day another ICAD. I've been inspired by the colors of the mixed media mood board. The colors are fun and bright. and its got pink! LOL

This one was quick and easy. I used a left over geli print. I love the print. The print has yellow on it. I stamped some stars background (from VLVS!)using gold ink pad. The dripped some pink paint down the card. I stamped the woman(from VLVS!) in the back of an index card. Colored her with color pencils. Used foam tape to attach her on to the card. I found words from my little drawer of sentiments from books I get from goodwill.
