Haunted design house part 2
Over at Haunted Design House the challenge this week is Hammer Horror, we want to see all your Hammer Horror inspired makes, weather it is tributes to the classic actors or making your own version of their iconic movie posters we would love to see them. If you head over to Hdh you will also see what the DT have been busy creating.
So after Mondays post I needed to do the back cover and line the secret draw.
I used the same technique for the back as I did for the front,Here is a LINK if you want to read a little more detail of what's been done. I selected another Hammer Horror movie still to use for an image transfer, a little more black on this image so the back ground colours are a little more subtle, As the colours were more muted I wanted to add more in the way of the cracks so I made sure I had a good base coat of matt medium down first as you need a non porous surface to get the best results.
I did try to add some gold leaf to the spine of the book, the Hammer Horror logo and some script but for some reason I could not get a clear adhesion to the modelling paste so I have re painted it for now, need to experiment a little more.
For the pages of the book I used Tim tape and again painted with translucent yellow oxide paint and then a little brown dry brushing.
I'm going to group Mondays pics here as well as I would like to enter this into a few challenges and want all the pics in one place.
I would like to enter this in to the challenge over at Anything But A Card their challenge is Incorporate Black into your project.
Over at The Sisterhood Of Crafters they have a Halloween challenge. I think Hammer Horror and Vampires fits the bill.
