Love Beyond The Grave

Created thes Halloween project for our LSS (local scrapbook store). I was given G45 product (Steampunk Spells, Happy Haunting paper lines and the large slider box) to create this product. I decided that I didn't want to make the normal scary type project, but I wanted it to represent my usual type of design with a touch of shabby chic, a touch of romance, a few grunge type objects, and of course....a clock! I went with the story line of a woman who has passed away, but so totally in love with her man, that this love remains with her...beyond the grave!  To achieve the grunge type effect, I used black acrylic paint mixed with sand to paint the box and also used this to add texture to all my elements. To add shimmer, I used Lindys Stamp Gang shimmer sprays. I was able to add real clock gears and even a real clock pendulum to this project! How fun is that?!? I used tons of flowers, wood embellishments from SaCrafters zibbet store, Tim Holtz embellishments, and beautiful laces from Lavish Laces etsy store! And yes, I did use a Halloween embellishment or two from Micheals Craft store....such as the large skeleton hand that is holding up the clock! When I saw this it was perfect because the hand was protruding from a black flower! Too cool! I knew I could make it sort of romantic...believe it or not!! OK here's the pics! Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!!!
