Fitztown Halloween 9 Image

I've been wanting to color this image the first day I laid eyes on it.  The image can be found at the Fitztown Store, image #9.
I began this tag by using Tim Holtz's Distress Inks, Peacock, Crushed Olive and Black Soot.  I then used the TH technique, Spritz & Flick. 
 The image was printed on Copic Paper, popped with Pop Dots and the following Copic Pens were used: 
BV0000, BV00, BV01, BV31, BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG32,
BG72, B04, C1, C3,C4, C6, W4, W5, R20, R24, R32, V17, YG03, G21, G94, Multi-Liner 0.05
I used a Jolee's halloween sticker a crow holding the sign. 
The black fence came from a Martha Stewart punch.  I had some lime green colored spider web and a black spider.  They were added to the bottom of the tag.
I punched out a 1" circle added some DI Black Soot lightly from left to right to resemble fog.  Small bats of various sizes were glued on.

Playing again with Linda Ledbetter's  Studio L3
Lots of love went into the making of this clock.  It's been a work in progress completed and perfect for this Challenge
For this project I am using Tim Holtz's Assemblage Clock and Idea-ology products.  Order Tim's book  A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3
to find out more details on how to create your own clock.
I first removed some pieces of the clock apart, removed the backing and glass.  Then I began sanding the clock using Tim's sandpaper. 
I gessoed the entire clock, allowed it to dry and then I mixed red and white acrylic paint and covered the clock.  I added some TH idea-ology, Sprocket Gears and Pocket Watch using glue (E600).  Pieces of ribbon with baby sentiments were cut as well as some small pieces of screen.  The inside was covered with pink pleaded ribbon that was the perfect fit for the insides of the clock. 
Then I applied some TH Crackle, Picket Fence and allowed it to do it's thing.  I finished it off with some TH Rock Candy Crackle.
I traced a piece of white cardstock and chipboard against the back door of the clock.  I adhered the cardstock and chipboard, cut a slit so I can later add lighting.  A hole was punched out of the back door as well as the backing of the Pocket Watch to run Rice Lights through both.
I then began to build and embellish the inside of the clock and Pocket Watch.  I painted come of the gears white using acrylic paint.  Some Jolee's Baby Sticker and baby embellishments, flower, rhinestones,  light pink tuelle, a Guardian Angel charm which I painted with a Burgundy Copic Pen.
I placed the lighting and glued it to the back of the clock using Velcro.  What fun I had creating this special piece for a long time loyal friend.
Hope you enjoyed my piece.  It is currently on display at Michaels for inspiration.  
Thanks for your time and interest in viewing my work.

Fitztown Rocking Zombie

For this project I chose a Fitztown Halloween 3, Zombie image. 
This piece will be entered in the following challenge:
Mixed Media Challenge, the prize of a $25 gift card sponsored by Ellen Hutson.
I began with a black tag, some water and Twinkling H20 (Good News).  I covered the entire tag and dried it with a heating tool. Using Tim Holtz's Distressor tool I distressed all around the edges and made a few "peekaboo" tears and placed small pieces of silver screens from Making Memories behind them.

I did some masking with the screen pieces with white Ink It Up Pigment Ink from Michaels
I used the following Copic Pens: 
G00, G21, G82, C0, C2, C5, C7. 
I then used some of Ranger's Inkssentials ATC natural sticky-back canvas cards.  I inked it up with TH Distress Ink, Black Soot to make it look dirty.  Then I cut a few pieces, removed the backing and used a piercing tool to loosen some of the strands.  I covered her entire face with it and snipped off any strands that didn't appear natural.  Threw in some zombie sign stickers from Michaels.
Added one of Finnabair's metal gear.  I love the look of her gears. I used some of the tape from the tape gun to create some spider webs. 

Pass on by Fitztown's store and Challenge Blog for some new images that were added and what the designer's came up with.
Enjoy everyone!

Hope you have a great day, everyday!

Fitztown Christmas New Releases Coming Soon!

Welcome everyone, I want to share this new Christmas image coming soon to the Fitztown store.  I printed the image on Copic paper and I adhered a piece of 5X6 chipboard because I knew I would be adding alot to this project.
I used the following Copic Pens:
E000, E2, E4, E13, E33, E57, Y2, Y6, Y26, RV25, G00, G2, G12, G29, G94, B00, B5, B12, B41, W1, C0, C2, C6, C8, C10, C100,  Copic Multi-Liner 3.0 

After all the coloring was done, I used a Gelly Glaze Pen to add the glittery magic of Christmas.  Glossy Accent Crackle was applied to the snow areas throughout the image.  On the children and the animals I applied just Glossy Accent.
 Take a close look at the snow and ice on the roof.

Gotta love Liquid Applique'!
I wanted the snow covered ground to give the feel of icy cold snow.

Just look at the texture on this side view shot of Santa's facial hair, the children's outerwears.   Lots of fun! 
Enjoy folks and again, please visit the challenge and store as well as my site here comments are always welcomed.  I was totally inspired by this Fitztown Christmas image.
Stay safe everyone...
