Day 2 of 12 Days of Creepmas!

Welcome back for Day 2 of our freaky fabulous
12 Days of Creepmas blog hop hosted by Smeared and Smudged!

Day 1 on Monday featured lots of festively scarey creations, what a clawesome start to the hop!  Thank you for all the wonderful comments you left me, I'm thrilled you like the start to my mini chunky altered book :0)  Today is Smeared Ink Day which means Smeared Ink challenged us to only use their imagery!  So here's my page 2 using Smeared Ink's 12 Days of Creepmas.  I'm actually using the entire set to create my book!

Two Skellie Doves

Just like the front and back of my book, I've also covered the pages with the same gold Christmas gift wrap from my recycle stash, you can see more of the snowflake design on this page.  I also applied Brushed Pewter Distress Stain to all the edges of the book too.  I shrunk down the image in Photoshop CS6 and printed it out on Neenah cardstock and coloured it with Copic markers.  For a bit of a Steampunk flair I hand pressed the image inside a Cuttlebug cogs and gears embossing folder and applied Distress Ink Fired Brick to the background.  I roughed up the edges with Tim's Paper Distresser tool and applied Black Soot Distress Ink to the edges.  For a touch of sparkle I sprayed it with pearl Smooch spritz spray and then added Inkssentials Matte Accents to the skellie doves and some Viva Pearl Pen Magic Transparent White to give the red 'berry' areas and the number "2" some dimension too.  The image is adhered to the page with Scotch Quick Dry adhesive.  Don't you think the birds look like they're made out of a weird transparent gellatin...it's creepy and I love it bwahahahahaha ;0)

  1. Another great page in your little book. I do like the shine on the birds and the subtle cogs texture too!

  2. The first thing I noticed was the dimesion and then the gelli birds.
    I have not used Scotch quick dry adhesive. Will have to discover it.
    The outlining shape looks very skullish.
