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!!
