I have a fun Halloween project today created with a small Etcetera Tombstone. I started by adding Worn Wallpaper (Halloween) to the surface with Collage Medium. I also added a layer of Collage Medium over the top to seal the paper then dried the surface with a heat tool.
Another thin layer of Collage Medium right over the top of the stars (yes, I always use my hands to get a thin coat.).
Dry with a heat tool.
I colored the shelf with Black Soot Distress Ink. Once you rub the ink over the Ruler, spritz it with water to let the ink run then dry with a heat tool.
I sprayed it with Peeled Paint Distress Stain and then used a damp brush to move the color into highs and lows of the Grit-Paste.
*You might notice I was testing a metal piece at the bottom. Ultimately it will end up at the top of the piece so you could see it better.
Next up some Bouquet flowers.
I sprayed the bunch with Antique Linen and then rubbed them into a mix of Seedless Preserves Oxide and water to pick up some purple color. Dry with a heat tool.
I recently watched the movie "Mary Shelly"with Dakota Fanning which tells the tale of Mary's life leading up to writing Frankenstein (I believe she was only 20 or 21 when she wrote it). The movie was panned by the critics but I liked it because it kept me guessing (since I didn't really know anything about her personal life). The cinematography and costuming were wonderful too.
Now carry on,paula
