It was a Dark and Stormy Night....

Woohoo!

My Acrylic Haunted House Album is finished!

Complete with a bat weather vane, hand cut bare trees, ghosts, yellow eyes, and a picket fence.

As usually this album contains, almost exclusively, my original artwork. I do not use templates, punches, or any of the various personal cutting machines. Everything is created by hand.

The exceptions are the skeleton on page 5 and the rub-ons used on page 4 and page 8.




The picket fence is made of paper and wire.

And the front door opens.

I used a lot of poppers on the page elements, add to that the very nature of an acrylic album, and this album looks more like a three dimensional model than a 2 dimensional scrapbook.









Most of the papers in this album are from the Basic Grey Periphery collection.




I couldn't make a Halloween album without adding trick-or-treaters complete with their goody bags...



I love the cardboard box, aluminum foil robot, with aluminum dryer vent arms, and duck tape pants.







I still haven't decided if I want to list it on eBay or not. Sales have been a bit down, and I wouldn't want to see it go for less than $70.00 ... and honestly even $70.00 would be a bit of a disappointment.

Oh yeah...

Krista Hanna said...

this album is absolutely stunning, so much detail!!!! I would be interested to see what kind of price this would fetch on Ebay :)

Jenna Franklin said...

OMG Camille - that is fabulous!! And here I've been waiting for what you'd follow up last Christmas's village with! :) So glad you shared this!

Kristi M. said...

You are INCREDIBLE Cam!! I love that last picture in a natural setting. It just totally captures the mood and feel. I too would love to see what kind of price this would get. Unfortunately it is a complete gamble. Some things do well and then others not so well. I was in shock with the final prices of your Christmas Village last year. I think that you should finally keep one yourself.

This is just insanely amazing. I'm literally having an inspiration *FIT* after seeing your work. You obviously put a lot of effort into this. I think Etsy would be the way to go, right? $70.00 would be a steal!!!
