Getting hyped up for Halloween

Every September, I get the Halloween itch.  I feel the need to create in shades of black, orange, purple etc.  Spider webs and potions spin through my head.  I've already started with two projects.  One will premier on Art Anthology on Oct 11 and this one for Gecko Galz will go live at that site sometime this weekend.

I have been watching all the previews for the animated movie, The Box Trolls, and, inspired by them, created one of my own.  I started with a box that enclosed a skin lotion I love.  It had a very detailed print that I covered with Gesso from Art Anthology.  After the Gesso dried, I painted on Art Anthology's Dimensional Crystal paint in Amethyst and used a black marker to edge.  The images on the box are a combination of downloads from Gecko Galz and our cross promo provider Rhonda's Originals.  I sure had fun with this one and it will join the other Halloween creations I've made over the years.

The downloads from Gecko Galz may be purchased at Gecko Galz etsy shop.   If you want lots of treats without tricks, check out both sites for great image downloads.

Down by the Sea for Art Anthology

Coming back from vacation is always tough.  We tend to get caught up in the unpacking, laundry and catching up on missed chores that piled up while we were away.  I wanted to capture some of the carefree atmosphere I experienced during our 3 weeks at the beach so I created this 3 giant tag to help take me back.    Thanks to Art Anthology's wonderful paints and sprays and Gecko Galz Umbrella Girls images, I think I did just that.

For detailed directions on how I created this and the products I used, click HERE.  Be sure to check out the design work by my team mates at both Art Anthology and Gecko Galz.
