I will start out with an apology, because this will be photo and detailed heavy! SORRY! This project was started last Tuesday and I knew it would be Halloween themed, but was not sure which direction this would take me! I finished this yesterday and no I did not constantly work on it, I am slow, but not that slow. Several months back via my blogger friend Sandra, I learned of this guy named Drew and a technique he uses for mixed media. In recent times, a few of my UK friends have been showing some fabulous artwork after taking a Finnabair workshop, which I believe is similar! Oh how I wish to take one of her workshops!
Gothic 31 female skeleton for the mirror part, but was not sure how! The first thing I did was to apply various layers of trim and goodies and all that will be explained later and I did actually remember to take some pictures along the way, which is either good or torture for you!
Haunted Halloween, was colored with Distress inks after stamped in Black Archival.
Brenda and that lovely lace next to the fair witch is a gift from Lucy!
September Referral Program at Artistic Outpost for a chance at a prize and just remember to use the AO stamps! This will be shared at AO tomorrow if you want to visit and say hello.
This will be finding it's little spooky way over to the following challenges:

Frilly & Funkie - Eat, Drink and be Merry
Inspiration Journal - Falling for Faux
Our Creative Corner - Forgotten Things - Mirror, trims and other goodies
