This week's theme over at Macabre Monday had me scratching my head I'm sad to say. Totally blanked out on this one, I don't know why. I don't think I understood the brief totally either!
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piecetake something vile and make it appear vintage, or maybe use something vintage that would be considered vile!
Oh dear, this is what I came up with. A new image named 'Thorne',
available on Wednesday in the Delicious Doodles Shop
Not sure what I was thinking, but there isn't anything 'vile' about this creation! I did try making a barbed wire frame to go with her tatt, but failed miserably with that. I went with this vintage style frame instead which is from a digi-kit at Just So Scrappy.
I added some gems and smeared some metallic copper rub-on over it. I printed the corner directly onto the dp, which is also digital. Then I added brown ink before sanding the edges a bit and adding black ink. Then I layered it onto some black card and smeared more rub-on at the edges.
I found a couple of metallic brads which look kinda oldy-worlde and put them on too. The 'fleur-de-lys lacey strip is also digital and got printed onto the dp. I have added some red ink to the dp round the frame to add a bit of richness to it. Looked a bit flat.
'Thorne' is coloured with my usual watercolour pencils, scanned into the compy and printed out for layering up with foam pads. I also printed a couple more flowers to go in the bottom left corner. Just to even things up a bit.
Right, off to sulk in the corner of the dungeon now then. LOL.
