To begin making this piece, give your Gypsy Soul chipboard elements a basic coating of acrylic paint--white for the skeleton and ivory for one of the arched window frames. Apply black ink to the edges of the skeleton.
Make a tiny noose from twine and place it around the skeleton's head. Draw spooky eyes onto another background paper. I used a CitraSolv treated National Geographic page.
Glue the free end of the noose to the black window frame, then glue the painted window frame with mica windows onto the black window frame. Adhere the entire set to your spooky eye background page.
Trim down the dictionary page, distress the edges with brown ink and use matte medium to adhere the whole thing to your painted background paper.
The black embossing powder adds a nice frame to your piece and it is now ready for "hanging" in your home.
Happy Saturday! -Betsy
