Wow! Is this a dream?! I am so excited to post my first project with the Art Anthology Dream Team. And an added bonus is the opportunity to participate in this amazing blog hop with Anthentique and Basically Bare.
This is Heidi from New York City and I love all things mixed media. If you are like me, you have a stash of those great things that you will alter “someday”. When I received the Thrilling Collection, I knew I wanted to feature the Halloween images and patterns to make a cool shadowbox. I started grabbing some Halloween items from my stash and had a blast creating! The shadowbox started out as an ivory tone that I sanded. I wiped off the dust from sanding and starting layering the Art Anthology paints to get this eerie look!
Years ago (yes, years) I bought this skeleton garland and knew that someday it would be perfect for a project. I altered him with Vegas Gold and added some June Bug eyes to make him my own. Do you see all of the details of the Thrilling papers, stickers and images?
I found these little bottles in my stash and knew they were perfect! See the spooky liquid inside-it’s some Truffle Paint mixed with water. The labels on the bottles are stickers from the Thrilling Collection-I painted the bat sticker with June Bug to make it pop.
A spider ring, some pretty flowers and spider web ribbon added just the perfect touches to the cute image of the witch and her black cat! I love layering items in the little spaces in the shadowbox. Each space is like its own work of art!
Love that image?! I cut it out of one of the pieces of paper and added Glossy Accents to make it really stand out. The scary moon is from the same image but I layered that against the back of the box. I loved how that one little image made its own scene in that box.
Are you drooling yet? The Thrilling Collection is the perfect mix of Halloween and everyday patterns. Check out the black & white chevron in the bottom picture. Imagine the possibilities for that paper! Check out the gorgeous collection of Art Anthology paints and sprays that I used for this project. I can’t wait to share more art with you—now…have a great weekend & GO MAKE SOME ART!
