To kick of the hop I wanted to give you something special, so I am sharing a Halloween decoration that I made for the Halloween SWAP over at the Smeared and Smudged forum. My item started as a raw wood four sided frame. The frame spins on the base. I just had to have this to alter - I bought it.
So the first think I did was cover the wood in Gesso. Then I mod podged some tissue paper all over to create the texture that you'll see below. Then - I painted it all black.
While it was drying I stamped my grave yard scenes from Holy City (a Smeared Ink set) onto some tissue paper and then glued it to the glass (i should have just stamped on the glass, but I was too worried I'd smear it or something). I then sprayed the outside of the glass with frosted glass and then dripped black ink down the tops of them. For that I used my Dylusions spray inks.
The last steps were to glue on my blackened flowers and skull to the top of the frame and then add my strobe light to the inside. The strobe light lights up the inside so that the grave scenes light up like there is a lightning storm! Hope you like it! And I hope TRISHA likes it - since I made it for her :)
