Day 21 of the 31 Days of Halloween ~ Rick St. Dennis' Airless Chambers

It's that time again for Rick St. Dennis' Airless Chambers Crew to join in the creepiest bloghop of the year, the 31 days of Halloween, organized by Smeared Ink. Today it's my turn to post on the Airless Chambers blog for Day 21.

I have a mixed media piece featuring two of Rick's wonderful images, Dancing with the Starz and Flying High. They make quite a team and both seemed to fit the sentiment. They were coloured with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and then fussy cut leaving a narrow white border. They were each matted with black cardstock before being trimmed out again and popped up on foam tape.

The 6 x 8 rectangle of mixed media paper which forms the substrate was spritzed with water and then sprinkled with Orange, Lemon, and Scarlet Brusho crystals. The background was tilted various ways so that the colours would run and blend before they were allowed to dry. Stars were die cut from black cardstock and scattered across the background. Inky dots were added with a Joggles background stamp and Jet Black Archival. The edges of the background were lined with Black Big Brush pen before it was mounted on black cardstock to frame it.

The sentiment was computer generated and printed onto white cardstock. The letters were filled in with red marker and the words were matted with black and popped up on foam tape. An enamel heart was adhered beside the last two words for emphasis and balance.

Thanks for joining us today. My witchy friend, her cohorts and I appreciate your visit.

Life is good; so is art.
