Just Hanging Around

Hello crafty friends,

Today's post is not a card, it's a... I don't even know what to call it.

I started by watercoloring a mix media sheet of paper with Distress Inks.  I let it dry overnight and after work the next day, I draw a tree.  I wanted it spooky and with lots of branches for my skeletons.  I used Distress Inks for the tree also.  Let it sit until the next evening again when I darken the whole thing with black and purple Distress Inks.  I didn't use water this time, just a lot of hand rubbing the ink on the whole thing.

I die cut a few Whispers Skeletons from gray card stock and hang them on the branches.  Don't they look cool? Next I stamped spider webs in certain areas in both black and white ink.  I even added some black enamel accents in the centers of the webs for dimension.  A stamped jack-o-lantern in the bottom corner finished my art piece.

I love how it came out... I haven't done any new art journal pages and this project reminded me how much fun it is to work on bigger scale projects.
