Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - Letter H

Happy Friday dear blogging friends,
thank you for swinging by my blog today! Well... I almost did not make it! Ouf.... I am sharing with you  my participation at the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge, this fortnight we had to play with letter "H", and I was instantly inspired by  HALLOWEEN. I did not have any stamps that were suitable for  the scenery I had imagined. So... I plunged back in drawing... Here is the result of my "experience"!

Bon vendredi amies de la blogosphère!
Merci de vous arrêter chez moi! aujourd'hui je vous présente ma page de dictionnaire pour le Craft Barn Alpha Challenge. C'était la lettre H qui nous était proposée pour cette quinzaine. Comme j'aime l'Halloween, bien c'était un incontournable. Je n'avais ni images, ni étampes pour créer la scène que j'avais dans ma tête! Alors je me suis retrempée dans le dessin, c'est une expérience Mix-média après tout! voici le résultat:

a close up of the scary tree trunk and the pumpkin.
I covered my pages with Gesso, and played with different kinds of inks to create the sky and the land.
I saw a scary trunk image on the web, and inspired myself with it to create this image.

Un gros plan de la souche d,arbre et de la citrouille.
Après avoir recouvert mes pages de Gesso, j'ai joué avec différentes encres pour créer le ciel et le terrain.
J'ai vu cette image de tronc d'arbre sur le web, et je m'en suis inspirée pour dessiner celle que vous voyez sur cette page.

A close up of the house, scary garden with tombstone. 
I played with acrylic paint, crackled paint and glossy accent, on the house that is hand drawn and cut in several layers to support the crackle paint. 
To create the weird "stuff" by the fence, I used snow-tex, mixed with glamour dust and metallic paint. then I dried with my heat gun... it dried bubbly!

Maintenant, un gros plan de la maison, du jardin avec pierre tombale.
J,ai utilisé de la peinture acrilique, du glossy accent et du médium à craqueler en grande quantité! J,ai d'abord dessiné la maison sur un carton bazzil, coupé plusieurs exemplaires collés ensemble pour donner de la dimension, entre lesquelles j'ai inséré un mica jaune pour donner l'effet de lumière. 
La texture au pied de la clôture est un mélange de snow-tex, de glamour dust et peinture métallique, séché à la chaleur, ce qui a fait gonflé le produit, et les bulles ont durci en séchant!!!

I had this picture in my camera... work in progress!
J,avais conservé cette photo dans ma caméra, c'est le travail en cours, hier soir très tard! 

thank you for your visit, have a beautiful weekend!
Merci de votre visite, passez une agréable fin de semaine.
