Omygosh! my art dry spell has been broken WHOOHOO!! I feel so freed....Yes, I know it may not last (shh!!) but the feeling of actually creating something again was liberating! I was beginning to feel like a thirsty person crawling across the desert in search of water! Try as I might I'd sit at my work area and attempt various pieces, but I couldn't get myself to go further to completion Arrrgg! talk about frustrating AND feeling like part of me was missing!! I love creating Halloween pieces it seems to be the perfect no fail motivator for me. I think we probably all have something that can instantly get our creative juices churning...what's yours?
Here's a Halloween card (This may not be a complicated piece but it definitely was a fun pieces to create) and new Halloween 2 and Day of the Dead college sheets I created below:
- Card stock or background paper
- Images (I used an images from my Halloween 2 Collage Sheet and wording)
- Label Bracket (II used one of the label brackets I have and colored it with a Gold Leafing pen to change the color.
- Gaffer's Tape (I found this locally from 7 Gypsies but this can be optional or you can use ribbon.)
- Dimensional Adhesive (such as Diamond Glaze, or Crystal Lacquer)
- Gold Leafing Pen
There's not much to explaining this piece other then I layered the image I used with left over card stock and colored the pumpkin eyes with watercolor pencils. I then added some dimensional adhesive over the coloring on the eyes, nose and mouth to give it some depth. I also added the witches hat from the collage sheet. The mask I applied dimensional adhesive to and then sprinkled lightly with the glitter dust. The label brackets as I mentioned were not the color that I wanted so I colored them with a gold leafing pen and added it to the card with the wording behind it. The gaffer's tape was cut in half and folded over around each side of the card.
