Morning, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. We have another fabulous challenge for you over at the Love to Create Challenge Blog where the theme is Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes.
We are approaching Halloween so it only seemed appropriate to create something to celebrate!
I began by sticking a plastic skeleton onto my cardboard coffin box and allowing to dry completely.
I then die cut pieces of Iron Gate from black card using Tim Holtz Sizzix Iron Gate On the Edge Die and adhered them to the coffin, adding pieces of the die cuts around the whole outside bottom edge of the coffin. I then painted the whole box inside and out with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Carbon Black and allowed to dry completely.
I added a witches hat to my skeleton along with a spider from Tim Holtz Alpha Parts along with some plastic chain for added dimension.
I applied VersaMark Ink to all the areas of my Coffin and then applied Rich Gold, Light Gold and Bronze PanPastels to the box, blending the colours with a soft art sponge, applying more colour where necessary.
I also added touches of Metallic PanPastels to the hat and spider. I then took some time to apply Black Coarse Pearl Medium PanPastel randomly around the box and then added touches of Silver PanPastel to add further to the metallic/aged metal look. I also included seasonal ChitChat Stickers, applying Black Coarse Pearl Medium PanPastel to the edges of each sticker.
To seal the PanPastels I sprayed lightly with Hairspray.
