Hello there! I'm Vivian Lake and today I have a new project using the Spider's Web kit.

I bought a wooden plaque from Michael's for this project. If I were to make a card like this, I just know I would never be giving it away. So, I made a plaque as home decor piece instead.

I'm beginning to think that mixed media was "invented" around Halloween.  What other time of year can you bring so many wonderful techniques and array of colors together?

Call me sinister and creepy . . . but I just love that skull!

The twine is from my own stash and the leaves are Spellbinders' die cuts, with Tidy Widy (mixed media kit) scattered around them.  I layered a tree, flower, leaves, twine and phrases.

I did use my own stencil to create the textured effect on the background.
The tree is covered in the Shimmerz Texturez Tidy Widy as the bottom layer.

Yep, those are bones tucked in behind the flower!

Thanks for stopping by today!!!
