The project today revolves around the new Tim Holtz Halloween die - Jack-o-Lantern. Follow along and I'll show you what I made!
I pulled all the burlap off a 6 x 8" Burlap Panel leaving the wood sides and masonite front. I painted all the edges (and a bit onto the front) with Black Soot Distress Paint.
I adhered one of my favorite papers from the stash to the masonite panel, leaving a little black edge showing. I made sure to cover the paper with a thin coat of Multi Medium to seal it. I positioned the Jack-o-Lanterns on the surface (no glue yet) but I think it needs more interest....thinking...
Halloween Words Block is the answer. I cut a couple words from strips of manila cardstock and cut the ends to make them look like flags. I also inked additional cardstock with Twisted Citron for the background.
The bottom area needed visual weight so I added another great paper from the Regions Beyond Paper Stash. I sealed the new paper with Multi Medium before adding Black Soot Distress paint to the outside edges.
I am off on a trip today to teach at Stamp Asylum in Plano, TX - with an add-on trip next week for a little bit of fun. I am looking forward to seeing Monica at Stamp Asylum, the students (who are always so nice) and my sister (did I mention I love to go to TX?)...I will keep you posted on my adventures on Facebook and Instagram (@luckyday), hope you will join me...
now carry on,
