Smeared Ink Weekly DT Project

This week I have made an Art Journal Page using Smeared Ink stamps from the Rubber Club Past Offerings and the wonderful Prompt #25 Acrylics by Susan Salyer from the Smeared and Smudged Forum.

"Faster, faster ever faster
and yet faster now they race,
winding, whirling, ever swirling
in the frenzy of their pace
and they shimmer in the moonlight
as they spin themselves through space."

Tune Full of Deets

Stamps are from the Smeared Ink Rubber Club sets Danse Macabre (Jan 2014 #1) and Jack (May 2014 #1).

Background is from the AJED Prompt #25.  I used blues, brown, and gold acrylic paints.  White Gesso as my base.
Stars stencil and blue and white acrylic paint for sky.
Black StazOn ink with stars stamp.
Gold Encore Ink for music swirls.

Skeletons inked and stamped with Night of Navy ink pad.  Main Skellie inked and stamped with Versa Mark Ink then heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder.

The full version of the poem can be found HERE.  Poem is called The Dance of the Thirteen Skeletons from Nightmares: Poems to Trouble Your Sleep by Jack Prelutsky.

Journaling pen for doodles around edges and black Sharpie for words.
All materials used are current Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
