This past year 2016, we couldn't participate in Halloween due to work conflicts. Needless to say my neighborhood was very disappointed!
So knowing that I wouldn't be building any props for Halloween, I had to find something to channel my creative energies into! It started with a video from Tim Holtz showing Halloween Mixed Media panel and the rest they say is history!
I had decided to send out Halloween Tags and then Halloween themed Christmas cards this year to friends! Needless to say I ran out of time as I was starting from scratch! However, here are a few works that I sent out. I have a lot more of my work on my Instagram Account- https://www.instagram.com/juliriedel/?hl=en
This was made with Tim Holtz Distress Spray Ink in White Picket Fence and Black Soot and stamped twice with White Picket Fence and then Archival Black. I didn't have Distress Hickory Smoke spray at the time, so I just kind of made my own. I liked the ethereal effect that turned out.
These Monster Mash Men were made from Tim Holtz Sizzix Dies. I embossed the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Metallic cards and also embossed the Metallic Kraft Core paper for the monsters. I used Distress Crayons to color and cut out the felt Santa hats from the Tim Holtz Santa Die. I love googly eyes and thought they looked appropriate on the zombie! These were great cards to give out to my Halloween friends!
