31 Days of Halloween - Day 5
WOW! Didn't think I'd make it on time this morning. I'd gotten so excited about all of the 3D art I'd been seeing and this little book had been sitting around for a while with a really crappy cover that had actually started to peel off. So I ripped the guts out of it (little bit of Smeared and Smudged humor there) and remade the cover with black fabric and sculpted the polymer clay crow and added some jewelry findings. Embellishments are not what I'm comfortable with but it's a start!
The pages are painted, stamped Lutradur with the image also stamped on similar colored paper and the whole sandwich put into slide mounts. Slide mounts were painted with some translucent paint?? and then stamped with border stamps.
Crows are from AlexStamping,Stamp Francisco, 100 Proof Press, Silver Crow, Artful Illusions, Martha Stewart and Inkadinkado. The whole thing measures 3 3/4 by 3 3/4 inches. Oh, and I'm supposed to say the spider web in the corner is from halloweenclipart.com.
Hurry, hurry. hurry and press publish!
