This is a combined challenge arch. First it's the paper patchwork challenge hosted by Cora over at Gothic Arches this week. The challenge was to create a patchwork of papers for the background and throw some paint over them. That was fun!
Then it's the things that go bump in the night over at Mixed Media Monday. My friend Kim is hosting this week, so I had to play even though I've never done a challenge there. Honestly I'm a bit intimidated by the talent of the folks who play in the challenges. Such amazing artwork. I really enjoyed the process of making this arch that feels really outside the box for me.
I don't do spooky, so it's not easy to get that feel going. I think my little sister made me watch way too many spooky movies with her as a kid. I can't even go into a community haunted house. I'm just a big chicken. So, I guess this was a face your fears arch. Thanks for stopping by.
Supplies used: titan buff and nickel azo gold Golden Fluid Acrylics, black Staz-on ink, Ink Blocks stamp, variety of Ranger Distress Inks, lots of paper scraps including a clothing tag, map and postcard, owl pic from vintage dictionary, vintage rummy game piece.
