Tickled Pink 'Mummy' Halloween

Morning peeps..... Hope you are all having a great weekend now that Autumn is well and truely with us!  Didn't take long to get here did it?   I just wanted to show you what I had been upto whilst this colder weather has been coming in.  I decided to do something different for this weeks challenge over at Tickled Pink .  The theme is RIP something...... as in either rip or R.I.P.  So I decided to pretty much 'rip' everything!!!   I went back to my roots this time with using fabric.  Admittedly it is only muslin torn into bandages but it still felt great to be handly fabric again.   There was only one image I could use for my 'vision' and that was the fabulous 'Digi Lil Haunts Mummie Christina'.  I took inspiration for this wall hanging from my lack of organisation two years ago at Halloween.  You see, my son, Brenden, (then 10) came home from school and decided he wanted to go trick or treating with his cousin Arwyn...(adults were there too).  Being ten any costume thrown together last inute wasn't quite 'cool' enough.  Well this resulted in me ripping my plain cream duvet cover into bandages for him and wrapping him up as a mummy!...  He looked great, even though he was stuck in there till I decided to cut him out, which of course was after a major fit of giggles because he needed the toilet and couldn't go because I had wrapped him up so well!!!
I also chose to do this because Tickled Pink are doing a Guest Design Team call (finishing in a few days) and last week my mojo was a little lacking.  Last week I entered the 'First Christmas Card' (seen on this blog) and it was very C&S.  I wanted to show the other end of the spectrum this week and do something 'different'.  Last week I focused on the colouring and this week I leant more towards materials and placement.
Here is a list of what I have used.
Image- lil Mummie Christina
Fabric- plain light weight muslin ripped into bandages
Card- Ripped scrap cardboard, Ripped plain brown card from stash, random black die cut from stash
Papers- Echo Park, The Apothecary Emporium (ripped)
Gauze medical dressings 
Copic markers
Distress inks-Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey
Paint- Dulux Nude Glow mixed with Coarse Brown Ballast (woodland sceneics)
Skulls- Tim holtz Grunge board painted with Picket Fence Crackle Paint
Thick gauge wire for hanging


Hope you like and please leave a comment.
Take care and see you all soon xxxxx
