“Murder” – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

While laying in bed one night waiting for sleep to claim me, I began thinking about crows. It’s not the sort of thing I normally think about before falling asleep, but sometimes the weirdest things pop into my head! It got me to thinking about the collective noun for crows being “a murder” and it gave me the inspiration for an art journal page.

I suppose it could be classed as halloweenish, but it could also be classed as an autumn page!

Day 7 – 7 Days of Halloween 2021 – “Shades of Age”

In today’s 7 Days of Halloween video, I’m creating a mixed media 3D canvas, which is something I’ve not done for a long time. So using some Halloweenish poly resin items I’ve cast recently, using some Finnabair silicone moulds from Prima Marketing, plus a few silicone moulds I’ve made myself in the past I set to work on a box edged 10″ x 10″ canvas. Using Salvaged Patina Distress paint from Tim Holtz and Black Gesso & Brass Monkey metallic paint from IndigoBlu.
