Something Wicked - Art Journal Page

MWAH-HA-HA-HAAA!!

Hello, only me!! :) 

This time over at Frilly and Funkie the challenge is:

***SOMETHING WICKED***


Now, when I first heard this theme, and considering I'm on the Frilly side of this wonderful team, I have to admit, I was bricking it - Halloween and shabby chic... and I don't have a lot of experience with Halloween things. Yup, I was scared, but I have to say - this was a blast!! I tried to encompass an evil side of shabby chic - hehe


I had considered a card, but felt safer in my art journal, less pressure as I wouldn't have the worry to potentially give it away. I didn't have a plan for the page either, just played and went with the wicked flow :)


After initial ink spraying, I started with my basic layers, wood elements for me are nearly always somewhere close by



I was tempted for harlequin stencilling, but the damask was calling to me. I think it holds a more elegant, Victorian and sinister look behind the black and pewter.



Linda has some absolutely gorgeous metal charms which are just perfect for mixed media and journalling.



The flower that produces the beautiful pearl drops, but beneath their haunting beauty brings swift death :) Story time in my head again!! :)



Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs, hiding in the shadows.



Gorgeous lace soaks up the sprays and blend beautifully. I love these Distress Stains but don't play with them as nearly as much as want to.



Pearls, with dollops of Glossy Accents, and Pewter, representing the drops of poison.



More lovely charms :)



The words are from the remnant rubs again, and I gave them each a coat of Glossy Accents. This helped to repel some of the spray covering them completely.



To add the softness to this page, one of my regulars made an appearance - cheese cloth. I think this was the biggest help in keeping this shabby, plus adds to the illusion of cob webs too.

Thank you so much for visiting!
Hugs
