Spooks Shrine

Hello everyone today I have my second Spooks Inspiration for Country View Crafts. All month my teammates have been sharing some wonderful inspiration!

I've stuck with the skeleton theme, but this time it's a Shrine with Ghostly Ghouls, and Creatures of the Night, to spook you all. Boo!


So here's what I did!

I assembled a large Niche-Paper Artsy and applied Crackle Paste-DecoArt through a stencil to cover it all. I first painted it purple and once dry, sprayed it with Black Media Spray- DecoArt. Once it was completely dry I also sprayed a few drips of red.    Inside I wanted to use the skull stencil from Andy Skinner but as it is an 8x8 I decided to cut it out. I can still stick it together if I want to use it whole. I do this a lot, to make to tools work for me. I do it to stamps too. I used it with crackle paste and once dry I painted it pale green one side to give it a glow.    

I stamped and cut out the skeletons- Tim Holtz and stuck them in place. I also added some silver angel hair inside as well as in the Draw. I wanted it to reflect the light when I used a candle! However only use a battery candle, as impatient me, who didn't have any, used a real one and nearly set it on fire!


Lastly I drew and cut out a ghoul to sit in the draw


And here it is again with the candle 


Hope you are not too spooked!

Take care and I'll see you all soon
