Hope all is well where you are?
We are all trying to get over this very odd lurgy the kids brought home from school. Makes you sooooooo tired and lethargic, heavy headed, sore throat, followed by a cough and cold. Miserable stuff!
Anyway, onto my post today which is my DT piece for Haunted Design House. The Macabre Monday Challenge this fortnight is:
Unlucky for Some.
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Hallowe'en
based art piece with a total of thirteen components.
No more. No less. Thirteen pieces total.
Well, I nearly ballsed this one up at the first hurdle!
Some of you may know I have been designing astrological symbol images for my normal and 'not-so-normal' followers, and there is apparently a thirteenth symbol which I had no idea about until doing this collection. Was just waffling on to the hubby about 'wouldn't it be fab if there was a 13th symbol' and he said 'There is!' Well my jaw hit the floor and I thought it would be perfect for this challenge!
THEN in conversation with my teamies last week I discovered that this challenge is all about thirteen pieces, not just about things to do with 13. ACK!! So I had to get my thinking cap and my counting cap on to do my make with 13 layers.
So here it is then, my make with 13 layers AND with the 13th symbol:
Much of the 13 piece total is made up of card and paper layers as well as layers for the image itself.
I have used, as I said, my new image (released today!)
OK, so I have my base card and dp, followed by a strip of leather trim and two feathers.
That makes five items. Then I have some white, black and white card behind the image. That's eight items. The last five items are made up of the layers on the image.
Here is a view of all the layers involved:
Another close-up of the image itself with all the layering:
And finally a finishing view of the whole card at a jaunty angle! lol
Right, gotta get me butt off here. Lots to do, much doodling to be done!
Let's see if we can't find a few challenges to enter huh? lol
