Today I took a break from making cards, tags and other papercraft items to work on a project with my granddaughter. This is our "Spooky" shadow box picture frame.
Let me introduce you to the artist...
This up and coming paper artist is my granddaughter Destiny.
We really had a great time constructing the elements and altering embellishments to create a "Spooky" scene.
We painted and sanded down the outer frame to get a shabby look. I had suggested that we use crackle paint on the outside, however Destiny did not care for the colors that were available. She's the boss!
In this close up shot you can see how the back wall has been painted purple with black dry brushed on. The walls, ceiling and trees are painted black. There are rocks glued to the bottom and painted green to look like grass.
A yellow moon is in the right hand corner against the black wall partially hidden behind the tree to enhance the night time "Spooky" look.
Under the tree sits a headstone that says "Are You Afraid of the Dark?", with a spider hanging down. You can see a pumpkin, that is actually a button, peeking through the fence. The fences were made from grungeboard that has been cut using a die and Cuttlebug. We then painted them black and then dry brushed them with white paint. Can you see a ghost peeking from behind the tombstone?
Thank you for coming by and taking a peek at our "Spooky" picture frame.
This is one Halloween project that I will treasure for a lifetime. To me it's perfect!
Destiny and I are linking our altered "Spooky" picture frame to The Artistic Stamper's Creative Team Blog for October Challenge. The theme is layers.
Until Next Time... Take Care!
