Creepy Cooking, Oh My!

Happy Saturday everyone, I hope you are all having a wonderful day! I am so excited for today, there is a scrapping, stamping, paper art show in town and I am so going...I can't wait!!! I wanted to thank you all for your lovely comments, and to those who have asked how to do something, don't think I have forgotten. I will get the instructions to you as soon as possible. It makes me happy that you all like my projects and cards!

Today I decided to make another page for my Halloween Art Journal. I found this digi image and at first look it's just a little ole' Gypsy lady cooking, but you know me...I had to make her into something she really isn't. I decided to make her creepy and goopy and have her cooking something that looks entirely inedible, with her little demon dog waiting for a taste. The floor was made with grout that I stamped a checkered background into then painted. The wall is painted and sprayed with Walnut ink. The body parts all over are from a skeleton I got at Target for like 50 cents because one of his legs was put on backwards. I thought so what it’s a skeleton who cares if he has a backwards leg, that just makes it all the creepier so I took it!!! I knew I could use it for something! I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and then adhered it to the chipboard page with Omni Gel. I love that stuff!

Now that you have seen my project for the day and left me a comment, hop on over to Smeared and Smudged to see what Terra has for you!!! Remember comments equal blog candy entries. Thanks so much to all who have participated in our challenges and I am looking forward to seeing more wonderful works of art from everyone!!!
