Creepy Caravan Blog Hop

Hello Friends!

Today I have a special Halloween creation for you that I made for the 
Creepy Caravan Blog Hop!

My drawer full of the macabre!

People often think I'm nuts when I buy random stuff. 
This was one of those purchases - a rusty old metal drawer.
It had so much character I couldn't resist.

A little bit of this, a little bit of that and it turned into the perfect Halloween piece.

I wanted the top section of the drawer to be like a rusty night sky so I started off by die-cutting lots of stars from Silver/Glossy Gold and Silver Starstruck Rinea Foiled Paper and attached them to the back, top and sides of this section. I tore up bits of a really cool looking mulberry type paper to make the clouds.  The last couple pieces I added were an owl that I made using a mould from Retro Cafe Art and a moon (not sure who made the mould) and Amazing Casting Resin (white) (all of the resin pieces were painted using DecoArts acrylic paint). I finished the owl off with a bit of Fab Fuchsia Metallic Lustre and the moon with Lavish Green Metallic Lustre.

The next section of the drawer was filled with a fun and creepy collage image from Gecko Galz and a vintage looking bottle label. This also contains a plastic skeleton from the Dollar General a resin hand and skull (both moulds from Retro Cafe Art) which were all rubbed with DecoArt Silver Spark Metallic Lustre.  I added some putka pods and a pumpkin embellishment that's been in my stash a few years now.

This section contains another label and collage image from Gecko Galz, a resin tree (mould from Retro Cafe Art), more putka pods and another pumpkin. I used the putka pods and pumpkins to tie it all together.

The final drawer section has a few frozen charlotte dolls made using one of my favorite molds from Articus Studio (link below), Amazing Casting Resin and the Silver Spark Metallic Lustre.  I also made another skeletal hand and skull (both moulds from Retro Cafe Art).

Hope you've enjoyed my Creepy Creation...
