I hadn’t planned to create any Halloween decoration this year, but when I saw this month’s challenge image at Mind Wide Open, I just had to. I loved the image that Gail had provided and it just screamed “Halloween” to me.
For a little creepy look I gave the family members enlarged heads and exchanged most of them among each other. I sewed a spider web right onto the printed picture, stamped on some images, draw with a fine liner some details here and there and added some text and embellishments. The silver plated tray was the perfect frame for the “Abbott Family”. If this is your family name, please don’t be offended. The name came up by accident when I looked through some images. I took it from a vintage add just because I liked it.
The tray was tarnished already but not in a pretty way. With a bit of black patina solution I got the look I wanted.
Please head over to Gail at Mind Wide Open to look at the other entries and vote for your favorite creation. Thank you, Gail for hosting the challenge! I’ve had lots of fun.
Have a great week, dear friends!
