Halloween Shrine by Paula Tidman


I have come over all spooky for this design project. I don't own many Halloween style stamps or bits and bobs, so I improvised a bit with this. I found an old box frame that had been lurking in my craft cupboard for ages and decided to give it a Halloween makeover.
After seeing the lovely texture that Liesbeth Fidder achieved in the current Craft Stamper magazine, I decided to try it on my box frame. I used texture paint and some scrunched up kitchen towel to create the rough bumpy surface, then coated with black gesso. I used Fresco Finish Paints in Butternut, London Night and Pansy and dabbed randomly on the frame, then added some Cosmic Shimmer Mica Powder and a touch of gilders paste in silver.


I used Distress inks in Spiced Marmalade, Dusty Concord, Aged Mahogany and Black Soot and the spritz and flick technique on smooth stamping card and then used the following stamps:
I used ultra thick embossing enamel on the bottles and Felinus and glued to the frame with strong glue.
I painted a small box (that had contained raisins) with black gesso and added a piece of dyed muslin.


  1. An amazing project...I Love IT!!
