Spooky Stand-Up Dressform by Melissa

Hi everyone. Melissa here with a project for Gina's Designs Chipboard  that was lots of fun to make.  I began by prepping all the chipboard with gesso.  I left the standing dressform alone as far as additonal paint goes, then I gave her arms and a face made from foam core board.  The arm on the right is a piece of a Gina's Designs chipboard branch that I cut up.

  I put texture paste on the jack o'lantern with a small paint brush, added Tim Holtz distress stain, then acrylic glaze paint, and topped it with glossy accents.  

The black cat and crow were painted with texture paste, black acrylic paint, then glossy accents.

The spiderweb and bat is just glossy accents over black acrylic.

The  spooky and boo words were painted with purple alcohol ink, then blue acrylic glaze. I also added some purple blue mica powder, and blue alcohol ink on parts of the spooky piece.

 The purple cat was painted with alcohol ink, then I dry brushed a little Vintaj Patina paint on.

Thanks for looking!
