Haunted design house challenge, 'Graves'
This week over at Haunted Design House we are challenging you with the chilling theme of 'R.I.P' all you have to do is make something grave related.
This is my little Grave shrine. It was made in a class given by Andy Skinner at The Craft Barn
We started of with a wooden plaque (actually it was a thermometer) turned it over and painted the plaque with a few layers of acrylic paint.We then used an image transfer technique involving Matte medium, when it was all dry I used the 2 stage crackle glaze from deco art to age it up.
The metal strip across the bottom was added and given one of Andy's rust techniques from his online workshop 'Time worn' I also used the same technique for the top. The photo was aged up with distress inks and added to the cut out section. I used alcohol inks on a pair of Tim Holtz Wings. I also added the book plate with the name Jane (no idea why i chose that name) Finally I screwed an eyelet into the bottom and attached the little memory tag saying 'cherish' along with a feather.
Head over to Haunted Design House to see plenty of Fab inspiration from the awesome design team and of course we would love to see you.
I would like to enter this into the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp And Show, their challenge this week is 'Your favorite'
This has so many of my faves in it, I love the rusty tech and making anything shabby/vintage. It also appeals to my dark side.
so all in all this make was right up there for me.
I would also like to enter this in to the Art With No Boundaries challenge.They have a Halloween theme running this month. Hopefully a Grave shrine is Halloween enough ;)
Over at No Matter Which Challenge their challenge is Halloween or Halloween colours. Again hopefully a grave shrine will be Halloween enough.
The Crafty Pad are having a 'Distress it' challenge. I love distressed challenges ( I can not do clean and simple) ;)
