Smudgefest - Day five


Create a project using a flowing medium. Some examples could be watercolor, liquid ink, liquid glues, thinned out acrylics, etc.... use your imagination and let the juices flow!

So many choices. Which to choose today?
I went with acrylic paints.

The skull was "decorated" with watered acrylic paint first.
Then, using the BoPeep Build a garden set again from Smeared Ink, stamped onto tissue paper for the flower images and onto card for the spiders. I used the colour scheme from day 3 for the most part. Promarkers used throughout. The flowers were adhered with mod podge and the spiders held in place with acrylic glue substitute.

The pics aren't the best due to the time of night.

I am entering this into
