12 Days of Creepmas ~ Day 9 with Monique

Bwa Ha Ha! Airless Chambers is once again celebrating Creepmas by joining the 12 days of Creepmas Blog Hop organized by Smeared Ink. The AC Crew will be using Rick's awesome Creepmas digis which are available at his Zibbet and Etsy shops or some of his rubber stamps which are available at I Brake For Stamps. Looking for more chances to colour Creepmas images? Check out Rick's new adult colouring book called Creepy Creepmas: A Holiday Adventure for Colorists. Details are here.

Welcome to Day 9 of the 12 Days of Creepmas Blog Hop. The blog roll is in the sidebar for those brave enough to hop through the entire line-up.

Today I have a journal page for you, I used the digital image from Rick St.dennis called Yo Mouse no Stirring and I really like these creepy presents (there are losts in Rick's zibbet in the Creepmas section here), they look kinda scary but I am sure they are really very sweet and cute. I wondered why this guy was walking around with a watch but when I got working on the page it all got together, see the quote on the page. :-)  I think it is a very true saying and I guess giving your time to someone or get time from someone is the best gift ever.

Anyway time to get creepy LOL

I coloured the image using Derwent coloursoft pencils, that is why the colors are not that bright, I think Derwent gives a bit of a vintage look and sometimse that is just what I want, that's why I have different sets of pencils, they all give a different result. The image was printed on copier paper and I blended the colours using a paperstump and odourless mineral spirit (but baby oil or vaseline will give same result). I cut the image out and started working on the back ground.

For the background you will need the folowing products  by Deco Art:  Media misters in yellow, orange and purple. Americana acrylics in Red Alert and Festive green, Dazzlng metallic paint in Venetian gold and am Americana stencil called Short Circuit.

The other things I used is a stencil with little stars (mine is from Balzer Designs) the clock background stamp is by Kaisercraft and the splatter stamp is by Prima.

I used  A Sharpie to write te quote(found on the net) on a piece of cardstock and coloured it using Mustard Seed distress ink.

The background started out when I cleaned my misters from last use, I usually clean them  by using an empty spray bottle fill that with water and put the spay head I want to clean on that , I spray on empty pages of my journal to use that for backgrounds.

Next I added the clock stamp using Archival ink, took the Short Circuit stencil and gold paint to add some parts of the stencil on my page. It looks real cool and shiny in real life but it doesn't show that well in the pic.
To give it a more Christmas look I used the star stencil and Red and Green paint. I added some splatters by the prima stamp and tadaaaa the background was done

I glued everyting on the page and made a bit of a shadow underneath the parcels feet using a water soluble crayon ( I love my watersoluble crayons, they are a kiddie brand and they were only 3 Euros for 12 in a cool plastic container and they work soo much better than the Gelatos I have)

Anyway that's it for today, see you on the next Creepmas hop day and one of my teamies will host this blog . meanwhile thanks for your time hopping, lurking or whatever around our blog and leaving the nice comments.........
