I also used a combination of a Rubbermoon and 100 Proof Press rubberstamps to create this ''Wednesday Addams'' polymer clay tile and an Artfoamie for the backdrop tile.
I also used the Rubbermoon Punkin rubber stamp in combination with the
I love all of the cool, rainy, cloudy, foggy weather I have been enjoying here where I live in Missouri lately. It has successfully put me in a gothic Autumn mood.
Whenever I shop & buy groceries, I am also considering the packaging things are in & how I can reuse it. I am slightly obsessive about certain bottles, jars, cans, lids, containers, boxes, wrappings, papers & chipboard. I save & collect things most people would consider trash & not give another thought to as they toss these things into their recycle bins or garbage cans
For instance, the frosted translucent glassine bakery bags the ArtFoamies arrive in in my order shipments. I cannot seem to part with them. The paper is so wonderful to cut apart & stamp on & wrap around a clear glass jar or bottle & add a battery operated tea light. Instant night light. Instant mood & atmosphere changer. Instant inexpensive gift for a loved one. My grandkids adore them & so do I. Speaking of grandkids I made these with my grandson's empty baby food jars I saved from when he was a baby. I had him here with me for his first four years. He is 7 now.
I have made these in the past & I was inspired to make them again by a video I watched on Kristin Powers' Patreon channel awhile back when Sandra Evertson released her first set of Art Foamies designs. I watched Kae Pea do this by stamping Sandra's Tenango Obscura ArtFoamie onto one of the glassine ArtFoamie bags, then she wrapped it around a dollar store prayer candle & my jaw dropped! Kae Pea created it SO fast, SO easily & inexpensively too!
Let's get makey! Shall we?
Let's gather our supplies.
☆Smooth, clear glass jars. I used the smaller first foods glass baby food jars. The battery operated tea lights fit perfectly inside them.You can use any smooth clear glass jar that has all of it's labels completely removed & a wide enough opening for your battery operated tea light.
☆Battery operated tea lights. I found packs of 2 color changing ones at the local dollar store.
☆Ruler to measure your jar, trims & the length & width of glassine paper you will need to wrap around your jar.
☆Scissors to cut the glassine bag into jar surface length & width strips & cut trims.
☆Liquid glue, gel medium, mod podge that dries clear. You decide if you want it matte or glossy or glittery.
☆A paint brush you do not care about getting wet adhesive on to paint the wet adhesive smoothly onto the jar and paint wet adhesive smoothly over the stamped & embossed image & seal it smoothly onto the jar. Or you can just use your finger like I did.
☆A larger ArtFoamies translucent glassine bakery bag. ☆If you do not have one you can use translucent vellum, waxed paper or translucent bakery papers.
☆An acrylic cling stamp block large enough for the stamp.
☆Silhouette Rubber Stamps by 100 Proof Press 6289 - Pumpkin Parade & 6454 - M - Trick Or Treat Silhouette Mounted. (You can also use the smaller halloween themed ArtFoamies silhouette stamps.)
☆Embellishment trims of your choice to decorate the jar neck & lip. I used black lace trims that I found in my stash.
☆Black ink that will hold embossing powder.
☆ Black fine or ultra fine embossing powder.
☆Heat tool for melting & setting the embossing powder.
☆A piece of copy paper or a coffee filter to catch the embossing powder overage.
Are you ready?
100 Proof Press, RubberMoon & ArtFoamies art stamps & art supplies make that creative desire to express our imaginations through our creations so QUICK, EASY & FUN!
Art Stamps are my favorite creative tools as they can be used over and over again in endless ways & they last for generations. My imagination absolutely explodes with ideas when gazing upon them & while creating art with them. I am forever a hopelessly addicted collector & creator when it comes to art stamps. How about you?
Halloween Wall Decor
10 x 20 inch canvas
140 lb watercolor paper
Jazper Stardust fluorescent green
Moonlight Duos in Eclipse Black, Nebula Rust, Asteroid Umber, Planetary Purple, and Moonlight White
a black micron pen
I drew a circle in the upper left hand corner of the canvas to represent the moon. Then I painted the rest of the canvas with black gesso.
I created the hill on watercolor paper by using very wet lamp black and raw umber letting the colors bleed together freely. Set aside to dry.
Using the Nebula Rust, I stamped out my bats on watercolor paper and cut them out.
I stamped the house twice on watercolor paper, once in Eclipse Black, and once in Planetary Purple. I cut the black one out whole, and cut out specific pieces from the purple one and glued them to the black one.
Using watercolor paints, I filled in the details of the house, and added the Meer Image witch's hat in the window.
I stamped the cauldron in black and the broom in brown on watercolor paper. Then I added some details to the broom with the micron pen and some yellow paint and cut them out.
I then drew the bubbles with a micron pen, and painted them with green fluorescent paint and cut them out.
Using the metallic marker, I wrote "Happy Halloween" in the top middle of the canvas.
Once the hill was completely dry, I cut it out and glued it to the lower right corner of the canvas.
Next I played around with the positioning and where I wanted everything to go. I glued the bats around the moon, and the house on top of the hill. I liked the way it looked with the top of the house sticking off the canvas a bit.
I decided the cauldron needed some depth. I stacked three little squares of paper and glued them together, and then glued that to the back of the cauldron. I then broke some twigs into about 1 inch pieces and glued them to the canvas to look like firewood under the cauldron. I carefully placed the cauldron so the feet are on the twigs. That and the stacked paper behind it make the cauldron pop off the canvas a little bit. I then glued on the green bubbles to make it look like they were coming out of the cauldron.
I glued the broom to the canvas beside the cauldron.
I stamped the ghost in Moonlight White, and that's it!
Hey Friends! I am Sarah Matthews, and I'm excited to share with you how I made an eight-fold zine with ArtFoamies. I had fun playing around with these interesting stamps. I hope you will too!
GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! This is Nancy Sheads and I'm back today with another project the 100 Moons Creative Design Team. There’s definitely a chill in the air so with Halloween rapidly approaching, it’s time to sneak in a few autumn cards before I go back to my Christmas cards.
