All Hallows Eve

The new challenge theme over at Try it on Tuesdays is...
Its Frightening -/- Halloween
We hope you will join our Halloween fun.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making.


Its All Hallows Eve and Madame Skeletonia is taking a walk at the witching hour.
Not sure I would like to meet her on a dark and stormy night.
This  mixed media page was photographed, then I took it into a digital program
 to add the splashes and border




The first layers to this journal page were water colour washes .
Next the background stamps with  the main image stamped onto tissue. Indigo Blu and Stampendous [the skeleton lady]

Only a little Black Soot distress ink shading at this stage.




The next stage was to add some texture using
  stencils and  paste,
 the web was a Tim Holtz stencil.
When dry  I added a few spider webs and words [Chocolate Baroque stamps]
Built up the colours with Distress inks, Black Soot, Peeled Paint.
Finally covering the textures area with White Fire Treasure Gold.

I wasn't sure which version I liked so decided to show you both.






I would also  like to share this page with  these  challenges.....
Our Creative Corner  The theme for October is --Halloween Horror
and
Eclectic Ellapu   The Purple teams challenge theme  is..Halloween/dark/horror.

Thank you for calling to see me today, I do appreciate the comments you leave.

  3. Fascinating to read how you made it, and you've created a very mysterious atmosphere and stunning picture..
    I don't think I would like to be there with Madame Skeletonia having her little walk and a person lurking in the background, too frightening!

  4. Oh Yvonne, I like both versions, but the second one is a bit more scary. The layers really show in the second one, too. I'm with you. I don't want to meet Madame Skeletonia in a dark alley or even walking down the street.

  6. Mme Skeletonia is delicious in all her layers! But not very scary.....that would have to be snakes & large hairy spiders!
