Macabre Monday at HDH # May I have a Quick Word.

Are you ready for a new, macabre challenge?
 The theme for May is:- May I have a Quick Word.
 There are multiple ways to interpret that, as long,
 as it's also dark and macabre in some way.
Either use a word or words somewhere,
Or make it a quick make ( less than a day from start to finish).
So come on Show us your most Gothic, Macabre, Twisted creations and revel in the dark side of crafting.
For my DT piece I decided to alter a box. I started by giving the box inside and out a coat of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in black. I then applied DecoArt Media Black Modelling paste through a stencil to the box base sides.
Whilst this was drying I gave the lid both outside and inside a coat of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in black. I then fired up photoshop and created my Poe collage and printed out.
Once the box sides had dried I reapplied the stencil and added DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Medium Grey Value 6 with a stencil brush. Once dried I went over all box sides with a mixed wash of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics in Crbon Black and Quinacrodone Gold to tone down. This was then sealed with a coat of DecoArt Matte Media Varnish.
I then gave the lid a coat of DecoArt Matte Medium and also applied Matte Mediun to the back of my collage and attached to the box lid with a brayer so as not to get any air bubbles. Once dry a coat of DecoArt Matte Media Varnish was applied to protect.
For the finishing touch decorative feet were added to the box.

Remember to keep it dark and gothic, not light and sweet. You have until Midnight May 31st to join us and you can enter up to 3 creepy creations.
