Spells and Potions.....

October...the month where spooky, scary and downright frightening things happen....so for my design team piece this month over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit I have created a double shrine style box containing all sorts of spells and potions....


I sealed the wood with black gesso,then added some texture paste to roughen the look,once dry I painted it with black acrylic paint...once completely dry I used pewter gilding wax to highlight the roughened areas.


I lined the left side with some scrap paper and added the clock and the ghost...then made up some "poisons" all glued in place.
I used some stringy bits of hot glue to create some cobwebs.


For the right side I made some spell books and another bottle of poison, added a ball of eye balls, the skull and the web and spider.....spooky or what,lol...


Finally I added a few wooden pumpkins....

You can find the challenge here over at
