Colours of Halloween -LIIU Challenge
Well, I think I will have to mark today red in my calendar, as I have managed 2 posts today! Stayed at home, as it is very cold and wet and *ungemütlich* outside, and had a nice day *resting* - and my way of resting is crafting, baking, napping and eating. And the rest of the day will be knitting time, bought some pretty wool yesterday, and hope that it will be a thick, warm scarf by the time I go to bed.
My triptik has been made from chipboard, left over from a *present* album last Xmas. I just sawed off the bows at the top of the presents, and declared them to be a house and windows. I painted them with matte acrylic paint. The middle part has been *wall-papered* with ceramic paper, which has been treated with resist ink (for the moon) and then distressed and stamped with TH inks and archival black and partly black embossed. The window frames have been hung with nets, spider's webs, birds, spiders, skeletons having a ball and a scary cat. The bats, witch's hat, shoes, broom and small birds are sizzix die cuts. The branches and trees in the background have been hand doodled. I fixed the three parts together so that each side gives a different picture. The hinges have been made from some gold wire and red beads, which I snipped off some Xmas decorations. Was fun to make, even if it was a bit fiddly in between. Thanks for looking!
