I've had this project in the works since the challenge was first posted over at Studio L3 but somehow other things got in the way of the completion. So here I am on the last day and I have finally finished it. I like that challenge #13 happened to fall in October just before Halloween. I'm hoping to snag the wonderful prize offered by the sponsor of this fun challenge - Inspiration Emporium or perhaps some goodies from Tim and Mario.
I had the Worn Cover in my stash so got that going by tearing some of Tim's Tissue Wrap and gluing it on in random places. I didn't want to cover the entire thing so that some of the design of the cover showed through. I did some spraying using Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays.
When the sprays were dry I used some molding paste and some of Tim's great stencils to add texture to the panels. I used some Distress Paint with stencils too. Then I sprayed some more. I finally added the face which I made of Ice Resin. You can see a complete tutorial on Ice Resin by clicking here.
I decided on red so the cover would have color balance and it also looked like blood.
Next I ran some Linen Ribbon through the holes in the side and tied a knot. Then I added a Chain Clasp so I could hang some things later. I was going to hang the Monocle with the eye at the end of the clasp but then I thought that it would look funny as a real monocle! Sometimes I just don't know what happens to my brain when I'm working on a project.
I wanted the face to be that of a 'mad scientist' so needed to add a few elements that looked like a laboratory. I cut out the small bottle from the Apothecary Die and trimmed it down a little. I then colored it with DI and covered it with Glossy Accents.
I filled some Corked Vials with stuff I had hanging around. Some micro beads and some glitter. I used rub-ons on the vials then glued them on top of the head. I had some space left on the left side so added a light bulb - what a bright idea! I feel like the mad scientist.
Ok folks, that it for this challenge - I hope you have enjoyed my science experiment and will try one of your own.
Have a crafty weekend,
