Guest Designer - Shilpa Nagaonkar

Please welcome our Guest Designer for this Halloween challenge.  Say hello to Shilpa Nagaonkar of Neon Diary who was the Design Team's favourite for the Thing with Wings challenge.

"Thank you to the Frilly & Funkie Blog Design Team for inviting me to join as a guest designer. I live in India, Country of various Colours !! I get lot lot of inspiration from our Culture and traditions.

I am a mixed media artist love to make altered art, canvas and art journals and there is always paints and inks on my hands. I have created Halloween theme canvas for Zoe's this fortnight Vintage Halloween Challenge."

"It was fun to use Tim's Crazy Cat stamp on this spooky creation. For the background I stenciled cobweb texture with Ranger Gloss texture paste. To bring on colours on canvas, I used Distress paints and sprays (Carved Pumpkin and Wilted Violet). Fall leaves are stamped and cut to adhere. Haunted house is die cut from Rickety House Bigz die, which I colored with Wilted Violet distress paint, after it dried I applied Tim's Crazing medium to get that cool crackle texture. I loved how it turned out. Hope you will like it too."

Thanks again Frilly and Funkie team for having me today!"
