This is my first attempt at a wall hanging featuring the spook-tacular Halloween Little Ghost from Just Some Lines.I’m quite pleased that I managed to compose the background digitally using the Summertime Designs A Boo-tiful Night Papers,Elements and Alphabet in Microsoft Power Point.Once printed out I felt it looked a little flat and it was hard to pick out the wording and the pumpkins at the front.I didn’t want to print them out again and layer them as I had already set out a plan in my mind.So I covered the words in Crackle Accents.Not only did it intensify the colour it gave a great effect :
For the pumpkins I used 2 layers,allowing to dry in between,of glaze pen.This enhanced the colour and added a waxy appearance similar to the real thing.Next I printed out the Halloween Little Ghost out twice onto smooth cardstock and once onto linen effect card.I coloured the hair,the part of the face that shows through the holes,stripey socks and shoes with Copic Ciao Markers.I then cut out the sheet from the linen effect card and shaded that with Copic Cioas plus the Blender.Because I didn’t want linen effect hands and they would stick out from under the sheet in real life once coloured I also cut them out.I shaped the card with my fingers and layered it up using 3-D Collall Glue Gel.Here’s a closer look at those :
To finish the piece I added some jute ribbon that I didn’t store properly and so it ended up tatty,but I think it fits well with the theme.Punched a couple of holes and fixed some eyelets with my Crop-A-Dile.I used some black wire to hang it with and threaded some beads I recycled from a handbag embellishment onto the ends.
