Halloween Family

Hello dear Blog friends,
today I want to share with you my second make for the "All Things Spooky" challenge over at Country View Challenges, the scary Halloween Family!

I took a brown envelope for my project and played along with some mediums and paints.
Here are the steps:

1. I prepared the envelope with clear Gesso to seal the paper. Inside the envelope I put some 
    strong cardboard for more stand.

 2. I mixed Matte Medium with DecoArt media fluid acrylics "Naphtol Red Light".
 3. To create texture I dabbed the mixture with a palette knife on top of the envelope
 4. While the paint/Gel was still wet I added a piece of black spider web I bought in a 1 € store.
 5. Now I mixed DecoArt media acrylics "Paynes Grey" and "Quinacridone Magenta" to get some
     purple color.
6. I dabbed it around the edges of the orange paint/gel. Then I took my heating tool to dry the
    paint and to create some bubbles (I love those bubbles ;-) )
 7. Now I matted my photo (from Gecko Galz) with some leftover paper on which I experimented
     with paints.
 8. Distress Ink around the distressed edges helped to fit it better to the background.
 9. Now some stamping for more interest.

10. Watered black and white Gesso, sprinkled all over the background, helps to come all parts 
      more together.
  11. I grabbed some clock parts from my collected items in my stash.
 12. I took some wire to frame the photo
 13. glued down all the bits and bobs
14. and added black Gesso and Quinacridone Gold on top all metal pieces to make them look a
     bit rusty.
15. Now I glued down a title and a spider hanging on a threat(from a 1 € store too) and dabbed
      some Interference Magenta on top of the spider and the title.
16. Last I glued down some flowers and leaves from my stash.

Well, very picture heavy I fear!
