A Tootsie Roll Halloween

Today over at Theme Thursday the challenge is....

This week’s theme is “favorite holiday”! Use your favorite holiday theme in your creation this week! Use collage images, photos, rubber stamps, fancy paper , embellishments or any other art supply to give your creation a ”favorite holiday” look. Add your art to your blog, then post a direct link under the comments! Please include a link to Theme Thursday on your blog! Have fun and make art!

Here is how I created this collage...

Tape Tootsie Roll wrappers into a long strand, cut off edges. Weave together with orange paper to form background.

Stamp Women (Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers) on white paper with black ink color with colored pencils. Embellish one woman with pink glitter, dove grey flocking and white ribbon. For second woman cut out a black felt piece as the dress, embellish with red ribbon and red jewels attach devils tail using a black pipe cleaner. Emboss wings (Stampers Anonymous) with kaleidoscope powder on white paper. Paint using Silver Bells Radiant Pearls, embellish with Dove grey flocking, trim closely and attach to woman.

Emboss Decorative Leaves (Hero Arts) with various autumn shades and paint with watercolors in similar hues, trim closely.

Paint fencing with white acrylic paint and dust with browns and green inks.

Attach Tootsie Roll background to black card. Mount Women, Decorative Leaves and fence to card. Cut circle out of yellow paper, using slightly darker shade of yellow stamp Sleepy Moon (Rubber Stampede). Mount in corner. Attach Words using a combination of stickers, tin letters and mini blank circles dusted with inks and stamped with letters (A B Seas).

Hope you enjoy! And as always I am open to any and all types of comments.
