Beware The Clutches of The Spider Woman

This is the image provided by Soartful this week and the challenge to create  Hallowe’en inspired art.
Here is the flag I made.
The base is recycled cardboard which I swiped Jet Black Staz-on directly to. Then I tore pieces of garden fleece, randomly gluing to the base, adding  scrim (available from The Altered Element) which I shredded with scissors.
The image was printed onto canvas paper and layered onto black felt (which sparkles). Made a flower from  scrim and a brad, added Stickles to the image and created a hanging using scrim. Once the flag was complete I blasted it with my heat gun, causing the garden fleece to shrink and holes appear which allowed the black base to show through.

Post a creation to your blog mentioning my post and the Creative Connection post on Gingersnap Creations. Let’s all craft it forward and see how far we can get this connection to go!”
Happy Creating. Lynne x

    What a delightful, haunted spider “lady”! And what amazing and creative ingredients you’ve put together… how on earth did you ever think of garden fleece, blasted with a heat gun??? So creative, with such fun results. 🙂

    That is wonderful! I make recycled jewelry but I love to look at mixed media, and make some myself when I have time. You are making some very cool things and I am putting you on my Google Reader.
