LOC - #49 - Alter Something
Oh! The Horror! - Sleepy Hollow (insp. by movie/poster)
I was watching Sleepy Hollow (1999) last night and inspiration struck. I love Burton's use of the gray/black color scheme in this movie. Then, of course, all the heads that disappear. I thought about adding bits of red, but for once held myself back, and happy I did.
I have altered a dry erase/magnet board to turn it into only a magnet board. If any headless person(s) are looking for some skellie heads this Halloween, come on over, I've got a few!
Dig, Dig, Dig, for the Deets
Started my altering by using brush and Black Gesso over entire board, which measures 13" x 13"...It was meant to be!
Once board was dry, I found an old cardboard skellie head stencil that I had made awhile ago.
I did have to cut out the bottom to create the teeth. Use the extra piece for a little handle which was taped down.
Found my long lost glow in the dark paint, called GloAway (cute name!) and with brush put it onto stencil.
Pushed onto board 9x in different directions. Let dry.
Next, stamping commenced! Used set created by Rick St. Dennis for Smeared Ink Rubber Club called Morte (June 2013).
Skellie background stamp used as border and stamped with Silver Encore Ink.
Two heads w/ bone image was stamped randomly with Black Archival Ink.
Found 2 magnet clips and glued hand and foot to each. Pieces are from stash.
Had a bracelet with skelli heads which I took apart. Heads were adhered with large glue dot to magnet circles.
Thought it would be killer to have the skellie eyes glow in the dark, so put a dab of the GloAway in all the eyes.
