Never give up for Calico Craft Parts

Hello creative friends!

There are also times in life when you have to encourage yourself, when everything is just grey and black and you feel frozen inside. Many of us know that, but nobody dares to talk about it, because it doesn't fit into this perfect world and yet it belongs to it. Nobody can always be strong!
In one of these darker hours I created this mixed media Halloween tag.

Do you know the amazing MDF Tag Shape from Calico Craft Parts? I love these  shapes because they are very sturdy and don't deform when you are working with a lot of water. You can make them so versatile, quickly implement an idea and work with much or little time. 
The perfect project for quick styling in between times :-) !

  Tips & Tricks

1. Curtain of rags made with gauze and black acrylic paint
   cut off a square piece of gauze, ink it with black paint, let it dry and cut some irregular strips in it
then use a small strip of cardboard and glue it on the upper part 

2. I used the Sizzix Bigz 'Windows frame' (only the frame piece) 
and made two parts into a double  

3. a 3D shelf  made with a mixed media board, 
the form I used is currently not available in the shop, 
    but you can also use the other shapes, 
which I linked below

I just split it in half and glue it with a hot glue gun
For more stability I used two cardboard pieces, as you can see on the bottom image.
4. I used the punched interior parts of the window frame as masonry pieces.
