I wanted to create a graveyard scene for Halloween. When I saw the new Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Apothecary set I knew that the skull would be perfect for my artwork. My skull needed a body so I stuck the stamped image onto a piece of card. I then made a coat from strips of paper which I aged and distresssed using acrylics.  In order to achieve a 3D effect  I used foam pads on some of the elements in the collage. I incorporated a lot of texture in this mixed media artwork  I used chalk pastels for the sky, moulding paste for the ground and a marbling effect on the tombstones.

Trick or treat?
