I do enjoy a bit of upcycling and this project started life as a cheap plastic frame from the £1 shop.
Stampendous Stamp: Strolling Skeletons
Stampendous Perfectly Clear Stamp Set: Spider Fear
DecoArt Gesso, Texture Sand Paste and Fluid Acrylics
Here's a quick how-to:
Gesso a plastic picture frame with black gesso to cover it completely.
Mix Gold and Burnt Umber DecoArt paints to make a brassy colour. Dry brush this all over the frame.
Add a further layer of dry brushed black and gold gilding wax highlights.
Stamp the image onto mixed media paper. Ink with a beige colour to make it look old. Scrunch up the paper and flatten out again before inking over the highlights with a mid-brown tone to make them stand out.
Stamp the web onto the glass with StazOn.
Use Texture Sand Paste and paints to create a rusty bookplate. Print off wording, age as before and add behind the bookplate. Finish with a cut out spider.
(Since completing this the paint has cracked in some areas where I think the frame material has resisted the paint because it's plastic. I actually think this is really cool! But to avoid it, sand the frame lightly first.)
