Smeared Ink Monthly Design Team Blog Hop


Shoni aka Crafty Inknik - You are HERE

Welcome to the February Smeared Ink Design Team monthly blog hop!  
This month we have been given the theme of REDRUM as are muse to do with as we wish.
Please enjoy what we have created for you and visit the Smeared and Smudged Forum for more inspiration from us and other members.
I have made a framed piece using the Gross Anatomy digi set from Smeared Ink.  I was inspired by the bathroom mirror scene in The Shining by Steven King.  Just some images of what is on the other side of the mirror at an old haunted hotel... 

Sliced and Diced Deets

Frame was purchased at Walmart.
I took out the glass and sprayed with Krylon Mirror spray paint with 2-3 coats.
Once spray paint was dry, I scratched the word in the paint.

I used Cranberry Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint for the red areas.

Gross Anatomy images were printed out and altered just a bit with my Picasso software to help darken a bit to see through the paint.

Placed and adhered images to backing and re-framed.
