Hello and welcome back.
Your journey has brought you here...so enter if you DARE!
ALL the fun is happening over at Sparkle n' Glitter (Fall Theme) and Airless Chambers (Halloween Theme) with tons of inspirational Autumn ideas using images from Rick St. Dennis Etsy store.
Here is my sample offering for the Sparkle And Glitter Fall theme, titled...
Beware The Witching Hour
Have you ever seen those fabulous altered art alarm clocks? I LOVE them; however, I can never seem to find one used, so I thought I'd try my hand at making a paper one!
The entire project was inspired by this fabulous image you may all know as Ichabod.
Here's a pile of silhouette cut pieces that I started with to assemble the clock.
Image on the left shows the beginning of the clock. I actually cut out a pattern for making a circle box and then omitted the lid but instead created a lip for the top of the clock instead. The picture on the right shows how I altered wooden pegs and bottle caps to make the clock elements.
Every bit of this was painted in Gesso to prime for Distress inks for the antique appeal.
The background clock image is free from Far Far Hill.
The top mechanism's that have been distressed with metal embossing powder.
Also, can you see just the little bit of what looks like cobweb cheesecloth hanging over the edge? That's a recycled dryer sheet..works excellent for cobwebs!
Ichabod all situated inside surrounded by a bench for him to rest on, hanging bat by the light of the moon and randomly placed inner workings of gears and cogs.
Now since the traditionally altered clocks are metal and have paper flowers for embellishments, I thought it would be fun to reverse that process. Since my clock is paper, the flowers needed to be metal so I cut up two soda cans. Priming them with Gesso and then inking with Adirondack inks, I've got a wonderful fall colored arrangement of lovely flowers that spell out E-E-K!
And there you have it...my first ever alarm clock that won't annoy me!!
Thank you so much for stopping in for a visit.
my offering for Airless Chambers (Halloween theme)
Goody-bag o' Horrors!
Using the same pattern for a circle box as I did above for the clock, I sized it much smaller to make a circle goody bag then sized the picket fence to cover the circumference then aged with Vintage Photo DI and accessorized with the incredibly awesome and gruesome digital stamps from Rick St. Dennis.
I've colored up Monster Clown with copics.
Here is his partner is fright, Zombie Clown centering a rosette and a spooky tag with googly eyes.
See the cobweb stuff again? More recycled dryer sheets...Love that stuff!
And that's all for me today, but be sure to stop by all my teammates and check out their makes for Fall and/or Halloween using the groovy images of Rick St. Dennis.
Thank you so much for your visit and your time. I really appreciate you!
