Now I had lots of step by step photos but sadly I had a teensy accident and they are gone :(
So I will try to add the details for how I created this piece and if you have any questions please feel free to email me and I will try and help!
I started with a blank, hollow paperboard book which I covered with black soot distress paint and then added some of Wendy Vecchis yummy paste through a layering stencil.. The wording is cut from the wonderful new alphabet thinlits...a real must have
It gives such a great texture, I then painted over some more black paint and brushed over some treasure gold.
I also added a little shelf ( can just see in the top of the picture using one of Wendy Vecchi's arts parts.
Then onto filling with lots of goodies... I added some vials with great crackle..Apply glue and seal to the bottle, leave to dry then add a layer of rock candy crackle paint and leave to dry.Finally I added some distress stain and heated but alcohol inks work really well.
I also added some small skulls, altered with distress paints. I added more vials filled with white embossing powder and with a rub on on. Die cut some little labels and inked and stamped with script stamp to added detail and tied around bottle necks. I also added lots of cobweb stuff from a Halloween cobweb. ( I mean there are probably a few in the house but these look nice )
I added a spooky spider all glammed up by painting with glue and seal and then sprinkling with distress glitter...not too creepy!? I stamped some of the vials and added inside as well as some poison signs.
Here you can see all the details of the little art part shelf complete with poison and a skull, as all self respecting spooky shelves should have?
and a few more bottles for good measure!
and here is another spider who has squiggled his way onto the cover...
This shows the spine of this spooky book...
and lastly another rather cobwebby skull on the top of the thick book.
