OOOoooHhhhh... spooky old-fashioned boy with a jack-o-lantern mask in a graveyard on Halloween? Yes. Say yes. It's spooky as hell...
I call him Jack:
|The bat is showing up brightly in some of these pix, but in real life he is much more subdued and leathery.|
|This image shows the fine gold line on the outside of the box.|
|How great are these pumpkins?|
Supplies and notes:
- Box made by tracing Tim's Arch die onto heavy packing kraft, then adding a flange to make it dimensional. After that I coated it with Teresa Collins modeling past roughly and painted it with black Liquitex gesso.
- Cheesecloth sprayed with Tattered Angels and some custom Perfect Pearls spray... though you can't see it now... it got covered up.
- That black "thing" in the background is a piece of floral lace trim.
- Tombstone is from Tim's ephemera pack-- it was actually a label and I typed on it then coated it with Distress Collage Medium in Crazing, and then rubbed some Black Soot Distress Crayon into the cracks.
- The pumpkins are from a local pumpkin patch's gift shop-- they are truly little seed pods of some sort and are excellent to craft with because they are lightweight yet sturdy. I stacked them using hot glue.
- The boy is one of Tim's paper dolls from the standard collection. (I didn't get the Halloween pack... so bummed... but I got the xmas pack, so if anyone has Halloween and wants to trade a few dolls across the holidays, I'd be glad to!)
- The jack-o-lantern that the boy is wearing is from Tim's ephemera pack from last year's Halloween collection, and the 31 tag is from the same set. I coated the tag with Distress College Medium in Crazing and accented it with Black Soot DI at the edges and Prima Memory Hardware Artisan Powder on the front.
- The bat at the top is a diecut that came in a goodie bag from The Funkie Junkie last Halloween. I coated it with Distress Collage Medium in Crazing and added more Prima Memory Hardware Artisan Powder.
