The crazy folks at Haunted Design House have come up with a corker of a theme once again, and I have already entered a (light hearted) project into their challenge. I wanted to do something a little bit darker as well and have spent quite a while trying to decide what to do.
I think that my psychic struggling reached the devilish Teri Sherman as last night she released some cool backing papers and I finally got my project off the ground!
Although at first glance this looks like a demonic handbag, it is in fact a Maya Road chipboard book (in a bag!). The inside isn’t done yet – I’m hoping to maybe fill a few pages during Smudgefest this year.
I covered the outside with the amazing 666 paper, adding a strip of matted card and paper through the centre for a bit extra interest. I used Cosmic Shimmer Lilac Black UTEE on some of the edges because I love the rich metallic sheen.
The book/bag fastens with some self adhesive velcro and I added a cool Iron Maiden ‘Eddie’ skull to the front with red gems in his eyes. I ran a black marker around the edges to tidy things up a bit.
I’m looking forward to getting on with the contents soon!
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Haunted Design House – 666 The Number of the Beast
Unstampabelles – Mixed Media/Alter Something
Penny’s Challenges – Embossing
Altered Eclectics – Anything Goes
