Ravens and decay

An extra couple of ideas to 'spook up' your Halloween projects:
1. Ravens
These birds just shout Halloween. I printed out an online picture and then cut it out and embossed it.

2. Decay
These ATC's have been created with many layers of acrylic paints, bits of papers and embossing powders. I loved in particular what happened when I soaked an old lace doily I had bought from a charity shop. I tipped gold embossing powder over it and heated it and got the most gorgeous decay!!! A little bit of water works fine, no need for inks or anything fancy, the embossing powder will stick. Instant texture that looks great on any distressed Halloween project.



Happy decaying (as an art form of course ;)
