Kick Start Your Art Day 5

The week long art journal challenge at 
is almost over, and I'm going to miss the daily process.
I'd like to think I can keep it up on my own, but the reality is that
I probably won't. Hopefully, I can keep up on my blogging at least.

Today's prompt for Day 5 is
Use up some of my scraps you say? Sounds like a plan!

I started off by choosing various scraps of paper and some washi tape.
I glued everything down and then proceeded to jack it up with a bunch
of black gesso and TH crackle paints. I really thought I had ruined the entire
page. Not a happy camper at this point, but I kept on adding schtuff until it
started to look right again. 

I added some MS bat fence border, and a Spellbinders die cut.
That gave me a chance to cover up the offending blotches and have a base
for my central pieces to rest on.  

I paired a headstone from Rick St. Dennis, with a cute
Mini Morticia from Make it Crafty. Popped them up on 
dimensional foam for a bit of layering and interest.

A close-up of what I had hoped all of the crackle would look like.
Not the case, so I covered a bunch of it up with MS paper tape.

I got lucky and managed to salvage this train wreck before it ran completely
off the rails. I am rather pleased with how it turned out in the end.

See you tomorrow for Day 6!!


  1. Turned out great! Love how you tied it all together with the tape. Fab page, Glo! xxD
