Shadows Of A Thousand Years Wall Hanging28 October 2012 | By JamieP in Altered Art, Mini Albums & Journals
Jamie here with you today, and boy oh boy do I have a fun (aka super inky!) project for you today! I have to admit that I don’t usually do much for Halloween as my favorite holiday is in December. However, once I sat down to work on this project, I was sucked in with all the fall colors!
So let’s get started showing you how I created this wall hanging. To start, I simply covered the corrugated Oh So Mini Album page with patterned paper and then inked the edges with black and orange.
Next, I cut a piece of 5in x 5in watercolor paper and gave it a good spritz with Tsukineko’s Goosebumps texture spray. This does two things for the background. First, it acts as a resist for the ink that will be added later. Second, it also adds a really fun texture to the page.
Once the Goosebumps is dry, I started adding liquid watercolors in orange, purple, and black. I just kept adding, layering, and splattering the colors until I was happy with the effect. Then I mounted the sheet of watercolor to black cardstock and adhered it to the album page.
Next up, I cut out a skeleton and adhered it to the page. Then I printed the saying, inked the edges, and also adhered it to the page.
Now, on to the embellishments. I sprayed the felt heart with black ink, then gave it a quick spritz with a glimmer spray. Lastly, I inked the stars with Sweet Melon and Grape Soda Smooch Ink.
For the finishing touches, I added a few crystals and punchinella to the bottom corner and a ribbon hanger at the top. For a last bit of shimmer, I used a Clear Wink of Stella pen on the skeleton cutout.

It’s with a very sad heart that I say this is my last post as part of the Basically Bare Design Team. I have had an absolute blast working with the gals and guy on the team, and will miss everyone. Wishing all the best for the company in the future!
