Enjoy The Moment

 My canvas is a Artist's Loft hardboard 8x10.
For the base of my piece I used white modeling paste with various tools for mark making. When this was dry I covered the outside edges of the canvas with Black gesso. 
Next I used more white modeling paste with a pale silver paint and  Donna Downey's floral stencil in random patterns.
Then came my glorious colors!

For this October Lindy's Color Challenge (in the nick of time), I used the following products:
All 5 colors
Blingy Blonde & Sassy Sapphire
Thank you for stopping by!

A Haunting We Will Go! with DecoArt of Course!

 Feeling a little Haunted?

It's that time of the year when Halloween lovers get all ghoulish and spooky !
Not to be outdone- I've joined the fun! 
Here is my latest project-which,I had sooo much fun making! Only wish I had made two! ")
Anyhow,on with some brief descriptions and lots of photos.
 Pardon my excessive use of closeups- I just bought a new camera and am really digging the photos it produces!

 As you can see, it all started out so simple...
 Spritzing the tag with water
adding  drops of Green Gold and Cadium Orange Hue
then more water and close heat gun to disperse the color
more water,more color,also adding Interference Gold at this point
 Next comes Media Modeling Paste with a generous amount of Splendid Gold Dazzling Metallic Acrylic added to it
Shmoosh through a stencil...
 and wait for it to dry
Yummy huh?

  Okay this is where I went all Utee on the elements and totally photographed NO more!
backing up...I used Ultra Thick Black Utee on the Witches wings,spider&webs and snake.
 The web behind her head blended in too much being black so I added Green&Orange and Glow in the Dark stippled on to it.
While the snake was still hot, I laid him in some Mica Fragments to give him scales
 and then outlined him with Americana Glow in the Dark Paint,spidey glows as well
On the bottom of the tag I made a mixture of Media Black Gesso(thinned down with water)and Media Carbon Black.This was pounced on and straightaway I added Black Flocking then zapped with heat- ooooh you should have seen the bubbling,simply out of the cauldron!heeeeheee
For the corners I added some chipboard elements which were painted up with a mix of Quinacridone Violet,Dioxine Purple and 
Americana *MSS Lavender Fields.
a bit of Thermal Green was used to edge the wings,and for the critters eyes 
 From here all the elements were added and some were given a nice thick coat of Liquid Glass.
and, a bit of Quin Violet around the eyes-giving her that zombie look everyone is dying for! 
Glad to see you hung around to the end and put up with my ghoulishly corny humor!
