A Wicked Frame

As I stated in my last post, my favorite craft holiday is Halloween. There is just something about all those eerie images conjured up in the imagination when reading spooky literature.

I had great fun creating this Poe frame with the September Gecko Galz digital images as well as images from this month's cross promotion company, Rhonda's Originals.

List of Materials: 

Rhonda's Originals "The Paper Seamstress" digital images: woman, basket, rat with bottle, moon bird
Gecko Galz "Haunted Ephemera" digital collage sheet September 2014 release:  set of jars and witch's hat
Gecko Galz "Midnight Hour" digital stamp
paint: Lindy's Stamp Gang:  Starburst Spray-Witch's Potion Purple
rubber stamps: Stampabilities, Studio G, Art Journey
trims such as flowers, feather and Doodlebug Doodle twine (Halloween assortment)
wood stars: Red Lead Paperworks


Print and fussy cut images.  Assemble woman with brads.  Place hat on woman.  Add feather and flower.
Paint frame; stamp images such as lace, gears and sentiment
Place images on frame with pop dots.
Print Poe digital stamp and place inside frame.

I'd like to offer this project to the following challenge sites:
