As the evenings draw in there is a stirring in the basement

Ha, not yet Halloween but I’ve started something to get me thinking about the spooky and creepy side of things.
Today I have a triptych for you, made using the Tim Holtz arch die, cutting two out and then only partially cutting the third, extending it and finishing it off with my TH scissors which glide through this mountboard so easily. You can see on the middle one where I didn't cut right the way down, it’s showing the marks, but as I was covering them with papers it didn’t matter.
Using the Laboratorie papers I cut three pieces, inked the edges and adhered to the arches, I then sanded the edges and added some embossing powders for effect.
The added elements consist of Tim Holtz dies, some tissue tape, ideaology and my own chatty words for Halloween.
The apothecary bottle was embossed with silver EP with black paint over and most of it rubbed off before it dried.
The three panels are connected on the back with a strip of hessian.

Have fun making your Halloween projects this year.
