I'll be sharing how I created the creepy background paper for the Ghoulish Guys layout in more detail next week. The "guys" puddle of blood with the title is made from JudiKins™ Diamond Glaze™ mixed with Dark Scarlet DecoArt® Americana® Multi-Surface Satin™ paint, then poured onto a non-stick sheet to dry in a puddle. The dimensional spiders are all free-hanging on strands of jewelry wire.
This "Bloom" layout uses a couple of techniques - I used DecoArt® Americana® Multi-Surface Satin™ paint for everything. I printed the sky first, then added "stripes" of three shades of green on the bottom portion of the plate with a palette knife and printed the grass. I applied red, orange and yellow paint to the plate and then used it as a stamp pad to stamp the flowers over the center of the layout where the grass met the sky. I then gel printed onto white paper with the plate using the leftover paint from the "stamping" and die cut flowers with my Sizzix® Big Shot™ and a flower die. These were mounted and buttons were added for the centers to add dimension. I love this leaf ribbon from May Arts® - and it was the perfect way to add dimensional stems to the button centered flowers. All the elements on BOTH layouts were mounted with Beacon® 3-in-1 Adhesive!
