chunky pages - Gothic & Forensics

Woo-hoo!!! I finally have something to add to Michelle Ward's Crusade....it WOULD be Crusade Number 13 too.....how....appropriate!!! lol
Here's the link to the awesome Michelle's Crusade blog (and you just KNOW how much I love her stamps by how often I use them!) HCIT!!! (Michelle-speak - how cool is that!)


It's Saturday afternoon and I've completed my set of Gothic chunky pages for our Altered Book Club.....finally! Now just need to get started on Art Deco, then next up we have Gods/Goddesses and then Chairs. Yep, chairs! Definitely going to have to keep my eye out for something strange to do with chairs....how boring to just have a picture of a dining chair or a lounge chair. So here is Gothic (front),






I've been listening to HIM's new cd, Venus Doom, there's a track on it called "Something Diabolical", hence the name of this chunky page...thought it kinda suited the image. Excellent cd by the way! I stamped the word onto shrink plastic and added it with jump rings for a more 3-d effect. I also used my new white webbing spray that we just got in at the shop, I already had black and gold and love it! It's a little hard to see the webbing spray in the scan as I'd sprayed the black cardstock first with Starburst Stain in Long John Silver (I LOVE those names!) and then the white webbing spray, certainly better irl (as usual).



Here's the back, quite plain but it just ties it in with the theme so it's not too boring when you flip the page to check out the next person's awesome piece of art!




I hadn't posted the images of the Forensics chunky swap from last month either so here's the front of that one...don't you just love the "dead man" stencil!!!

The back. The "Evidence" word is one of the 7 gypsies fabric gaffer tape that has all sorts of cool words on them, this roll particularly suited this theme. The image of Lucky Luciano is from here, a cool mobster generator.



Back to the studio...

Your 'Diabolical' chunky page looks great Kelsey. Doncha just love how things come around again? I wonder where my can of webbing spray is and if it is still any good? I love those Starburst Stains names too - my fave is Bucket of Blood!
BFN,

I love your art Kelsey! And your chunky ' diabolical' page looks so good. Your art is always so individual and quirky. And makes me smile..

oh my! these are way fab! (why haven't you entered them in the crusade??) i should have told you that Something Diabolical isn't actually on the album....it was an extra thrown on with Summer Wine. SD is on a BloodHound Gang album not worth buying but the track is awesome.

Really awesome chunky pages (The mobster's quote bubble was clever)! The names are fantastic (yet another product to look into!) and remind me of Hard Candy nailpolish and their creative names.
