Hi all I am Elaine (Ellapu) This blog used to be called Handcrafted by Ellapu but wanted to rebrand to KraftiKards Kreations. I have given up mixed media and am now into making cards. I had not posted since 2019 when I ran 2 challenge blogs, Eclectic Ellapu and Altered Eclectics. There were so many fantastic designers who tirelessly created such beautiful art and I would like to thank them if they ever come across my blog again. I do hope you enjoy my art
Most of my mojo has gone and I have practically forced myself to get into the craftroom and do something. I made flowers and a stickpin and I then felt the need to make this.
I used a mask I had bought from a carboot sale. I stripped it of all the embellies already on it but guess what forgot to take pic before doing so lol. I have however took pic after and here it is.
I had even painted round the mouth area before remembering lol!
I painted it black and then stamped and embossed all over using skelli hands on the cheeks and spiders and web everywhere else - unable to see them so waste of time. I split the canvas open after painting and stamping just as the mask. I adhered some card behind the eyes and triple embossed it to give them a staring shine. I also painted and embossed the lips.
I stuck the mask behind the canvas to give appearance of breaking out.
Don't know why I felt the urge to create this ... insanity perhaps!
