Floating Vampire skull

For today's make I have a floatng vampire skull,

 The skull is a Rick St.dennis digi you can find it here. Coloured using pencils. Cut out and framed between two glass plates.

The frame is made of wood, usedAmericana gesso to base coat it, and painted it Dazzling Metallics Venetian Gold. next was a layer of Weathered wood, and the top paint layer isAmericana lamp black. When the crackles appeared and the black paint was dry I used Matte Varnish to protect the crackle layer. Next the fun started, creating paint drips, used Red Alert Americana for the dripings, mixed it with a bit of water to get it running. When the dripping was dry I added some Glamour dust in Sizzling red, because vampires like a little sparkle too.

Easy project with a great result I think :-)

Halloween Turtle

I made a page in my journal, using the Rick St.dennis Halloween turtle (btw there is a turtle in Rick's shop for all occasions). I made the background by sponging Deco Art acrylic paint in neon colours.

see materials used underneath pic

Deco Art paints used : Americana Neons in Scorching Yellow and Electric Blue. Multisurface acrylic in Pink, and Americana acrylic in Orange Flame. For the trees and tombstones I made a maske fro Sizzix Alterations Dies (Graveyard and Branche tree) and spinges them with Deco Art Traditions in Carbon Black

The paints are sponged over eachother while they were still wet so they mixed into, what I think are, Halloween colours, I tried to create a landscape that was spooky and at the same time was not to dark.
The Tim Holtz dies were used to make stencils (used use cardstock it wil work fine).
The Turtle was coloured using Prismacolor pencil and cut out to glue on the page, the branches at the bottom of the page is an Inkadinkado stamp.

The senti I found on the net, no idea who thought of this one , there was no name in, but I thought it was so funny, I just had to use it. 
It must be the rat that said this to the turtle, but I am sure the turtle helped cover up the body, you can see that in his face.
