Halloween portrait

This frame sits on a table in my foyer; I enjoy creating a collage periodically, changing it about every four months or so. The 7gypsies papers that arrived a while ago really gave me the urge to create another collage, and this was the result. The underlying element, or self-imposed rule for the collage piece in the foyer is it must have a fleur-de-lis in it somewhere. I simply love this symbol. To create a collage, I start with a foundation paper in the dimensions of the finished piece, then commence tearing an assortment of patterned papers that complement each other. Distress edges, inking with Distress Ink (Ranger) color of choice. 7gypsies papers, Papertrey Ink stamp (spider & sentiment); Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous (large skull & flourish); Palette Silky Obsidian pad, Ranger Archival Jet Black pad, Ranger Distress pads in Vintage Photo & Antique Linen, Fleur-de-lis & 3/4" round paper punches; antique brass large eyelet, lace (tea-dyed), Stampin' Up ribbon, black Magic Mesh, black brads.
