The Residents at No. 31

Hello Everyone
Thank you for the lovely comments that you have left for me to read.  It has amazed me the positive feedback to my Halloween art. As I’ve said before this is a relatively new area for me having made even less than a handful of projects in the past. Of course, when you have amazing supplies to work with then it does fire the imagination. For today’s post I’d like to share another Oxford Impressions’ DT piece using the fabulous Dr Coffin’s Apothecary stamp plate.
As many of you will no doubt have in your stash I had one of those little compartment trays that are fun to alter.  I wanted the shape to resemble a house so I added a roof where the bats could  gather.The bird rests on top of a branch handcut from greyboard painted with Gesso and then I swiped with DI.
The text stamp was stamped onto tissue paper which was adhered with Klear floor polish to the tray then adding little stamped elements here and there.
I will be sharing another piece of altered art using the Dr Coffin’s Apothecary set very soon.
If I have not visited you for a few days then I am sorry but I will catch-up with you soon. These past few days I’ve spent little time on-line and have fallen behind visiting friends to view their art.
Until the next post, thank you for taking the time to visit, it is much appreciated.

    This is brilliant, Lynne, I am enjoying your Hallowe’en makes. You do know though, that No 31 has had a lot of problems – have we now got bats and scary birds in our belfry too?! I will listen out for them!

    Oh dear. My internet decided to dip out just as I tried to publish my comment – very irritating.
    However, this project is stunning. Your stamped images are perfection and so appropriate. What I also love is your attention to detail – you even think about where the bats are going to live! Wonderful project. I will have to Google the floor polish technique as I don’t know that one! Always good to learn something new.

    Klear floor polish? Wow, that’s a new one on me. Your creation is simply gorgeous, so much detail and that Raven really does hold centre stage. Love the fabric you have used to, gives the whole house lots of texture. Also glad that you created a home for the bats! Crafty hugs, Anne x

    Love that you do a more gentle version of Halloween resplendent with cobwebs. Floor polish! That’s a new one on me – mind you, our dog would probably slide all over the house if we had a floor that needed polishing:)) Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Buttons x
