Halloween series - Witching Hour


  I love fantasy stories  in spooky forests with misty figures and phenomens, where the fog creates eerie optical effects.
Halloween time is near and so I had a lot of fun to create a little witches house with this amazing wooden shapes from Calico Craft Parts.

look before I started with decoration and painting

basically colored with Chalky finish Paint Vintage from Decoart and Glimmermist from Tattered Angels 'Woven Burlap' and a little bit water diluted black color

some close up's

I'm  always fascinated from this natural wooden shape look and I think it isn't always necessary to paint them, or?!
I only used orange and black acrylic colors, 
the classical Halloween shades with a little bit shimmer, to paint some wooden shapes


oh what is that??? a phenomenal magic effect ;-)

Halloween - Hidden treasure


today a new project inspiration for our monthly Steampunk Challenge
Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

 Just in time for Halloween :-)
 I was in an old castle and found something there, completely dusty and forgotten. 
It's a real OLD Raven - Pure True ;-).

I used black gesso and the 'Old World' Decoupage paper from DecoArt as basic together with Distress Stain Spray- Walnut ink, 3D elements were made with silicone moulds and modelling clay and painted with black gesso, 
 Antiquing Cream 'Patina Green' and highlighted surface with white gesso from 13@rts
using a dry brush.
it was the same process as last time 
more can you see here

Hopefully you will now feel even more inspired to create your own
  altered bottle maybe as Halloween decoration or 
another Steampunk project in industrial grundge style,
surprised us, we are pleased!
I really enjoyed working on mine!!!

Mixed Media place September Moodboard
I was very inspired from this saying,
because it's exactly this what I feel
when I try out new ideas in projects

13arts #59 Inktober
I also used white gesso from 13@rts 

Mixed Media Art October
I think Halloweentime is a great time for fantasy, or?!
I was inspired from the dark colors and the mysterious lights on your moodboard

Many thanks for stopping by!

Halloween - Haunted Manor

Hi friends!

 And with this story of the "haunted house" from my friend Claudia 
 began the extraordinary making of a very special house
oder auch hier
die Donnerwetter - dolle Hütte genannt ;-).

Das verwunschene Haus
Schon immer, scheints, stand an des Waldes Saume,

umhüllt von Brombeerranken, ein Gemäuer,

als wäre es entstiegen finstrem Traume.

Noch keinem Wandersmann wars dort geheuer,

der hoffnungsvoll drin Schutz und Raststatt suchte,

sich aufzuwärmen an der Stube Feuer.

Warn auch die Wandrer noch so wildverruchte -

schlugs zwölfe erst vom Kirchhof her im Turme,

da regte sich das Haus, das langverfluchte:
wie es weitergeht könnt ihr hier erfahren :-)

unschwer erkennbar, hier kam die Tim Holtz Village Manor Stanze von Sizzix zum Einsatz

Es gibt inzwischen so viel beeindruckende Projekte dieser Häuser im Netz zu sehen
u.a auch eins von unserer Claudia, das man fast eingeschüchtert ist.
Was soll man da noch neu erfinden???
 die Antwort stand in der ersten Strophe von Claudia's Verszeilen
...ein Gemäuer,
als wäre es entstiegen finstrem Traume....

 und frei von mir weiter interpretiert
...eingefangen von des Waldes starken Wurzeln


 zusammen mit einer lufttrocknenden Modelliermasse und einer Silikonform habe ich ein paar Baumwurzeln modelliert, die dann mit schwarzem Gesso angemalt und nach dem Trocknen
nochmal mit grüner und weißer Antiquing cream (DecoArt) eingepudert 

das Mauerwerk ist ein Hintergrundpapier das zusätzlich noch an einigen Stellen mit einem Anstrich aus Strukturpaste und verdünnten Media Fluids bearbeitet wurde

der Clou an dieser Hütte waren für mich die Dachlatten, sie sind absolut perfekt
für ein Gespensterhaus, das langverfluchte oder?!

Vielen Dank für's reinschauen!
Fragen??? jederzeit gern!

Happy crafting!

ATB Halloween - Magical


The Halloween adventure creative journey continues :-)
 It's an artist trading block with a magic glass ball.
Once in a while one is tempted to look into the crystal ball with the notion that there
might be continued positive signs, or?!
If I take a look I see a lot of new crazy ideas in it
:-) MAGICAL :-)

 How I do this

some close up's

I was very inspired from this theme 

The journey will be continues!
See you later my friends
Hugs, Kerstin
