Magical Manor ~ FotoBella DT

     Happy Halloween!! Today I have an art journal spread done for the FotoBella DT using mixed media on a painted background of Dylusions Paints from FotoBella.com.

     With my fingers and some water, I applied Tangerine Dream, Squeezed Orange, and Funky Fuchsia to the page on the right, pressing the one on the left onto it to reveal it's mirror sky image.

     Then I used my Mini Blending Tool with a circle stencil to make the setting sun, with Pure Sunshine Dylusions Paint. The witch, like most of the other stamping, was done with Ranger's Jet Black Archival Ink, and embossed with Ranger's Rainbow Sparkle Embossing Powder using Graphic 45's An Eerie Tale Stamp. The broom was made from a scrap of paper, rolled up, and glued to some rope fibers.

     The trees were made with my Cricut Expression cut from black cardstock that I coated with Black Diamond Stickles. Then I used an older Prima stamp to emboss the fence, adding grass along the bottom with some fibers.

     Instead of a haunted house, I made a "Magical Manor" embossing the stamping with Ranger's Copper Embossing Powder, and using up some old alpha stickers to spell MANOR.

     Most of the manor pieces were stamped with Prima Marketing's Old Town Stamp, and colored with Distress Ink Spray Stains. The roof was done with Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch Sprays, while the wood was colored with Antique Linen, Hickory Smoke, Vintage Photo, and Walnut Stain Distress Spray Stains. Then I added Purple Stickles to the skull, embossed again with copper using an old stamp.

     The walls were coated with Prima Marketing's Heavy White Gesso before coloring with sprays. Then I finished the edges with Wilted Violet Distress Ink and Bo Bunny's Stitches Stamp. 

     Watch out for the ghosts that I hid inside some of the windows, stamped with Picket Fence Distress Ink!

     Happy Halloween from all of us at FotoBella
