This is the start of the entire holiday season, the grand kick off from Halloween, to Thanksgiving, rolling into Christmas, New Years, and closing out the season is Superbowl Sunday. OK maybe that's not quite the line up for the official holiday season, but it's pretty close.Today I have a haunted mixed media shaker journal created from a thrift store find which happened to be a hideous burlap covered journal. It was such a homely find, passed over by so many and just waiting for me to grab it and give it new fresh life.It's amazing to see how paint and chipboard can transform things.
The Creative Embellishments - Holiday Halloween Scene2 isa great value because there are so many pieces in the set. Use themall at once or split up into multiple projects- your choice.
Last few steps: the shaker was filled with Trick or Treat Sequin Bead Mix shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More. Once the cover of the shaker was in place, I finished by creating ground to the scene.This was done by thickly adding clear matte gel medium to the journal and sprinkling the same shaker mix ( Trick or Treat Sequin Bead Mix ) on top of the gel medium and left to dry in place (again dried naturally - no heat gun because gel medium loves to bubble when heated).
