IKE's Art Giger Tribute ATCs

Hi all

As you are probably aware i am a huge Aliens fan, so i wanted to create something that was a bit reminiscent af H. G Giger the artists behind the original Aliens movies. I used the Giger Tribute stamp from IKE's Art and took it from there.

I am playing along with 

I painted a ATC blank with black acrylic paint and used the Short Circuit stencil with modeling paste to create the background.

I then cut up a plastic skeleton and painted it with white gesso and then with black paint. I dry brushed silver metallic paint over the embossed areas and bones.

I used a mould to create the face and facehugger. I used modeling paste in a skeleton hand mold let it set over 24 hrs and then i cut the middle finger off and glued it to the back to make the tail before painting it all in flesh and gluing it to the face.

I used the spine part of the Giger Tribute stamp.

The next ATC was created by painting Texture Sand Paste over the ATC first and then painting it black once dry. I  then added a stencil to a section of the background and painted over the top with silver paint which gave it a weird gooey look.

The creature was created out of air hardening clay and i panted the face with a paint mix of bale blue and pale grey. I just experimented with the amount until i got this deathly pale look. I used clay to create the spine like hair and added a skeletal hand over the face to compete the look. I painted the whole thing black and then rubbed Silver Spark Metallic lustre over the top.

For this ATC i used twxture sand paste on the base and then drywall tape, Painted it all in black and the applied the  Snakes Web stencil over the top and painted it black. I then added the short circuit stencil to one section of the ATC and dry brushed the whole base with Silver Spark Metallic Lustre.

I coloured in the Giger Tribute stamp and cut it up and placed the main body in  the corner of the ATC. The Arms i made using paper clay and i just rolled out some long thin sausages. The hand are the skeleton hands which i attached to the appendages and painted black. The Face was made with a mold and painted with a blue and grey paint mixture.

Spooky ATB using Querks stamp set

Hi all

I have a spooky ATB to share with you today using the Querks set by Rick St Dennis.

I used a set of ATB's or Artist Trading Blocks and decorated them before gluing them together. I coloured the Querks in with Brusho powders.

I created the skull using a mould and plaster of paris. I then painted it with Metallic Lustre.

I used skull beads to make the feet.

The Chipboard shapes are by Tando Creative.

Rick St Dennis: Let's All Play on the Scary Go Round

Hi all

I have a new journal page to share using the Scary go Round stamp by Rick St Dennis

I used a stencil on the background and let the modeling paste set enough so it forms a skin on top. i then spritzed ink over the top and let it dry.

I added another layer of stenciling and this time i used Brusho powder to dye  the gesso blue. Next i added a few texture stamps and a textured border.

I coloured the image in using Prima water colours and a fine tipped water pen.
