I'm so in the mood for Halloween.
I used to have a huge Halloween party every year. My friends and I spent months making decorations, props, and building a haunted house; making all the creepy foods and setting the atmosphere.
Then I started working for a big chain Halloween store and was so busy at that time of year I didn't get to do a thing for several years. It got so bad I didn't even want to take my kids trick or treating. It almost...ALMOST ruined the holiday for me forever.
But now I find myself in the mood for Halloween again, I miss the haunted house, I miss everyone coming over in their costumes, I just miss the whole feeling of it.
So I've been revisiting some of my old Halloween creations like this ATC I made...
It was made by smearing modeling compound over an old cartoon collector card and then using a paintbrush to "draw" a design in the paste. After that I did lots of color washes to get that faded coloring and a final coat of thinned black paint which settled nicely into all the grooves.
I really had so much fun with this piece, I think I'm going to work on some new stuff with this technique this weekend.
Also this weekend please come back and visit as I have some Exciting news to share on Sat.
and on Sun. I am going to share the details of a new Halloween Charm swap.
I hope you will come back by!
