Haunted Design House - Hangman's handiwork
It's time for a new challenge over at Haunted Design House this fortnight the theme is Hangman's Handiwork, basically we want to see you use a knot somewhere on your project.
Head on over to HDH to see what the DT have come up with and remember there will be more next Monday.
I decided to tie up a heart for my make. i took a shadow box frame, painted the inside of the box with Decoart acrylic paints and added some washes to age it up.
The frame was decorated in a finish learnt on an Andy Skinner on line workshop, Book Of Ruination.
This was again painted with Decoart acrylic paints and given some dry brushing and washes.
The heart was a plain wooden heart I picked up in Brighton, It has been given a base coat of acrylic and a top coat of Crocco Crackle glaze in purple.The heart was glued into the box on top of a stack of card to pop it out.I added three eyelet's and ran a suede tie through and used my 'Knot' to keep the heart trapped inside. To finish off I added the Tim Holtz thing and added the word caution.
Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see you over at Haunted Design House.

Sorry I didn't get round to comment earlier-I just am loving this piece and it's quiet simplicity of shape and colour but making such a strong statement-great job.ReplyDelete
I thought I already commented on this one. Just WOW is all I can say. Freakily brilliant and just so darn classy to boot. You certainly are the talented crafter. xReplyDelete
